In 2019, we provided over 1.5 million meals to Eritrean schoolchildren in eastern Sudan. But that was only the beginning.
Daily school meals create well-nourished children like Rania, who can focus on their education without worrying where their next meal will come from.
Rania is a student at Abu-Zar-Algfary Primary School in Kilo 26 refugee camp in East Sudan.
She's 13 years old and lives with her parents and 4 siblings.
When the Charity Right team spoke to her, she told them that the meals she receives at school help her concentrate and achieve higher grades. She told us proudly that this year she got 87% in her final exams, a great improvement from the 70% she achieved last year.
Because her father was bedridden, her family had no income and couldn't afford meals for everyone every day, so she would have to go to school without breakfast, and sometimes come home to no dinner.
With the meals from Charity Right, Rania is now guaranteed breakfasts every day at school before her lessons start, so she can concentrate during the day. She wants to go to university to study Medicine, so she can come back and "help her community in the future".
The reality of the situation is, that there are hundreds that live the same life, that are in the same dire situation.
There are hundreds that need our help.
