We recently received a testimony from the caregivers and parents of Shalken, a young boy who attends Love a Child Clinic, Jesus Healing Center in Haiti.
Shalken is one of the many children in our Hope program. The Hope program serves as an integrative approach to health in conjunction with standard-of-care therapy. Six months ago, Shalken entered the program in desperate need of proper nutritional support. Since Shalken began receiving real-food nutrition through the Hope program, he has drastically improved.
His caregivers write, “Shalken and his Papa feel you have given them all hope and want to say ‘Thank You’ for changing not only Shalken’s life but also theirs. MannaRelief has changed Shalken’s life so much that he watches the clock to be sure he gets his nutrition on time.”
To ensure that Shalken, and other children like him, continue to receive the support their bodies need, please donate today at www.mannarelief.org/donate and click the link “Give Hope”.
If you know a child that would benefit from MannaRelief’s Hope program please visit our website at MannaRelief.org/Hope for more information.
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” –James 1:27
We want to take a moment and give a special “Thank You” to our loyal partners, Convoy of Hope. MannaRelief began working with Convoy of Hope in 2011 and has since built a strong relationship with them. In the last three years, MannaRelief has provided more than 11 million servings of proper nutritional support to children through Convoy of Hope. Currently, MannaRelief is serving 24,000 children through Convoy of Hope in El Salvador, Nicaragua, and the Philippines.
Our most recent shipment to them was sent to Nicaragua to help provide proper nutritional support to 5,600 children who desperately need the nutrition. We look forward to continuing in the fight against malnutrition through Convoy of Hope and other partners like them.

We want to give a special Thank You to Rufus Whynot! Rufus has served in Romania since 1995 with his organization, Yielded Vessels Ministries. Over the years, MannaRelief has been able to reach 3,800 children with more than 1,445,000 servings of proper nutritional support because of Rufus.
Rufus, thank you for all of your past efforts to help MannaRelief bring proper nutritional support to the precious children of Romania and for sharing the love of Jesus with them. We appreciate you!

We want to thank our donors who, because of their generous donations, have helped MannaRelief provide proper nutritional support to children in need. Whether one-time, monthly, or just when they can, our donors have made an impact with their gifts of all sizes. Together, we are fighting malnutrition. Thank you!
We are excited to announce that nearly 3 million servings of proper nutritional support were picked up from our warehouse earlier this week and sent to our partners, Convoy of Hope, for more than 11,000 children in the Philippines! This shipment has special meaning to the staff here at MannaRelief as we know that so many lives in the Philippines were forever changed through the devastating aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. It is our hope that this real food nutritional support will make a lasting impact and bring hope to those affected by the storm. Our prayers continue to be with the Filipino people as they work to rebuild their lives during this time.
