Feeding the Students

The HOPE Team - Friday, April 20, 2012

CKS not only provides education for thousands of students, they also provide two meals a day. Food is prepared in outdoor kitchens over open fires with water pumped from under the ground - an enormous task for the school cooks. The students have porridge for breakfast at the morning break and beans with rice at lunchtime. It is quite remarkable to see the meal queues stretching across the playground. To watch some of the younger children carry their precariously balance bowl full of precious nutrition is heart wrenching. The children wash their bowl in the run-off area near the water pump before stowing it for tomorrow. We thank God for CKS and the opportunity they give these children for a future.
