A New Lease on Life for Charlie

The story of Charliemagne, or Charlie as her family and friends call her, really fills us with hope in the battle against malnutrition. Our mission work has truly made a difference in her life, snatching her away from the
terrible ravages of starvation, and just in the nick of time.Charlie, from the Diocese of San Carlos on the Island of Negros Occidental in the Philippines, contracted TB and osteoporosis at age 7 due to a severe lack of
food. Despite her medication therapy, Charlie continued to decline to the point that she could hardly rise and walk, too weak to attend school. For a child who loved school and received the 2nd highest honor in her class, this
was devastating.At 10 years old Charlie weighed only 35 pounds and had given up, until Risen Savior Missions found her through Sister Marivic at St. Vincent Ferrer Chapel. After only eight weeks of FMSC food, Charlie has made miraculous progress.Together we have accomplished so much . . .

With over 100 feeding sites in place, RSM is    currently feeding nearly 23,000 starving children and infants a week in the Philippines!  And yet we still have to turn down food requests from many provinces due to lack of = funds to cover the cost of shipping.  The tragedy is that, while we have the food from Feed My Starving Children to send, we do not have enough money to ship it, and children are dying while they wait.

Please help us reach our goal of shipping five more 40-foot containers of food to save 20,000 more  children this year.  The need is great, and your  sacrifice will save so many lives.  On behalf of the beautiful little ones like Charlie, we thank you!
