BOURA CHILDREN'S CENTER
Boura Children's Center is located in the small village of Boura, Burkina Faso in West Africa. It is a safe place for children that are in distressed situations due to poor income, sickness, or most commonly, death of the mother.
Boura Children's Center provides these children with basic needs such as food, clothing, water, and shelter. Medical care is also provided by the Bridges of Hope Clinic located nearby.
Chickens are a valuable source of nutrition. The protein in eggs is the highest quality protein found in any food, as well as an excellent source of choline - an essential nutrient that contributes to fetal brain development and helps prevent birth defects. Beside the nutritional benefits, the raising and selling of chickens and eggs can provide an ecomonic benefit.
Everyday families struggle to feed themselves and many go without any food at all. When one child gets one meal per day, they are able to go to school and learn what they need to be able to grow up with the potential to break this cycle and support their families.
For less than the price of a Smartphone, you can keep 1000 children alive and bring hope to their families in countries such as Burkina Faso.
