Be 1 in a Million: Help JAM SA feed a million children every day in 2015
More than 2.5 million children in South Africa go to bed hungry every day. You can help change this tragic fact by supporting JAM South Africa’s (JAM SA) ‘Be 1 in a Million Campaign’ and help us feed 1 million children every day in 2015.
There are still so many children in need within a number of communities in South Africa. When entering such a community, JAM SA intervenes by addressing the most basic of human needs, food. By providing a highly nutritious porridge to the children who attend one of the over 1, 000 JAM-supported Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres in five provinces, JAM SA helps to keep children full, healthy and developing as they should. Every day the children enjoy a 50gram portion of JAM porridge in our signature ‘Red Bowl’, which provides them with 75% of their daily micronutrient requirements. The porridge, known as CSS+ (Corn Soya Sugar Blend) consists of 65% corn, 25% soya, 10% sugar and fortified with micro and macro-nutrients.
We believe that if everyone who is a friend and supporter of JAM SA joins together to help feed one child this year, we can feed 1 million children, and more, in 2015. Each child you support means one less child with an empty, aching stomach. By joining hands with JAM SA, you can give the simplest and most wonderful gift of all – a ‘Red Bowl’ of hope to a child who has so very little.
Consider giving a gift of great value to a friend, colleague or relative this year for a birthday or to commemorate a special event. On their behalf, for just R360.00 you can feed one or more children for the full year of 2015. Along with your receipt, JAM will send you a beautiful ‘On your behalf’ card, which you can give to those who would enjoy this special gift
Help us feed a million: Be 1 in a Million. Remember, You can’t change the world, but you can change the world for one child this year.
