“I strongly believe that every child deserves basic human rights, like food, shelter and safety. That’s why I decided to help Feed My Starving Children. I’ll be raising $8,030 for a village for one year,” Pirani said.

About $80 can provide food for a kid for each year. Feed My Starving Children sends pouches called “MannaPacks” to nearly 70 countries.
