H.E.L.P. MINISTRIES SOUP KITCHEN PROJECT
HELP US FEED THE STARVING CHILDREN OF THE WORLD
H.E.L.P. Ministries International Trust is still carrying out its responsibility of feeding the 5000 primary school children and 1000 unemployed adults on a daily basis with soup and bread and funds are urgently needed to keep the soup pots boiling, especially during the winter rainy season in Cape Town when even snow falls on the nearby mountains.The children are highly dependent on the mug of soup that they are offered to keep their tummies warm and to enable them to learn at school.
44 x 34 litre pots of soup are cooked per day (about 400 gallons of soup) and distributed to 9 Primary Schools and also in the community.
The soup kitchen is intended to be a model to which we are going to bring Christian leaders for training, showing them how to go about feeding 5000 school children on a daily basis so that they can return to their communities in their countries all over the world to start similar soup kitchens and that eventually millions of children would be fed around the world.
This training would be provided through our H.E.L.P. Ministries International College.
