Eating is mandatory for any person to survive. Eating healthy is not an option for children in government run institutions in Romania. The Cereals Project improves the diet of the 70 plus children in the Ilisua orphanage. This is a welcomed addition for these children whose regular breakfast would be only a cup of tea and a slice of bread with margarine.
Each monthly donation provides a cereal breakfast for an institutionalized child 2 days per week. This also provides an opportuntity for thes children to feel the love of Jesus Christ. The orphanage personnel who are understaffed and underpaid also receive encouragement as they see basis needs of the children being met. In exchange, you will receive reports and pictures of the children and the improvements that healthier eating produces for them.
