With much of the nation's citizens involved in subsistence farming, food insecurity in Malawi can be a serious issue when crop yields are poor from erratic rains or insect infestations. Over 50% of the country's caloric intake comes from maize (corn), and is cooked into a porridge called nsima. It is the daily staple of much of sub-Saharan Africa.
Through local churches, Demonstrate Love identifies the neediest of families: the elderly, widows, and orphans and provides food, especially during the "hunger months" before harvest time. A 110 pound bag of maize will provide basic sustenance for a family of four for about a month, and currently costs about $12 USD. Please consider a donation to feed those who have so little.
