It was an immense joy and privilege to help thousands of incredibly resilient families recover from the effects of last year's drought. In 2017 more than 6 million people, (almost half the country's population), faced food shortages. Many died of starvation and others suffered hunger daily. Hundreds of thousands of people were uprooted from their homes and placed in Internally Displaced People camps across the capital city. With the help of our supporters, Happy Hearts was able to meet the vital need for nourishment and play by distributing food & indestructible soccer balls to many families.
