Here's how your money is helping:
Because of your generosity, FFP's Dominican staff purchased supplies to create 200 CARE KITS* (filled with food and cooking items). Many of our Dominican church partners worked with us hand in hand to help assemble the kits.

The FFP team was surprised to discover that since Kristin and Heather visited the camp two weeks ago it had swelled from 200 families to over 400! This increase would really challenge the distribution.

Any community distribution can quickly deteriorate into chaos, but fortunately due to our team's experience, they maintained an orderly and calm process. Knowing they wouldn't have enough for everyone, they first identified families with children. And they encouraged those who received to share with those who didn't.

Thank you for your donations! We are grateful and overwhelmed with your generous support so far. But the needs persist!
We need at least 200 donors to give $30/month through the end of the year so we can continue to meet the basic needs of the people in the camps.
Will you be one of them?
