ECSS Continues To Provide Hot Lunch to School Children in South Sudan

TBC continues to assist a total of 1,601 pupils in Eastern Equatoria State (EES), South Sudan. These pupils are in schools run by Evangelical Church of South Sudan (ECSS). Because of this year's drought and crop failure, there is hunger and children are starving. The pupils will be having hot meals of a cup of porridge or beans even during and after the Christmas holidays. The head teachers anticipated that the upcoming academic year 2010-2011, starting the last week of February that the total number of pupils will extremely increase. It may become necessary to place a limit on the number of students in order to provide better education and reduce the class size. The hot meals significantly boosted school attendance. We give glory to Him.
In order for the hot meals to continue to be available for school going children, TBC funding source is very crucial. ECSS is embarking on TBC to raise funds for this important feeding program. We count on TBC support.
ECSS faces problems of the increasing food prices in local market and it has greatly impacted on feeding activities as well as Evangelism. ECSS evangelism activities are not well resourced, resulting in the pastors and their families facing horrible challenges. They are unsupported.
Evangelical Church of South Sudan (ECSS) continues to welcome any contributions from individuals as well as Churches who will like to support the elementary school feeding program in Sudan. Contributions can be channeled through:
