Help UNICEF Send 500,000 therapeutic food packets to children facing starvation.

Please help our partners at UNICEF save children in regions facing famine and starvation. Read below:

Right now, 13 countries across Africa and the Middle East are facing one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time.

Famine is threatening 2.5 million children. It’s depriving the youngest and most vulnerable babies and toddlers of nutrition and health, pushing them closer to starvation and even death with every passing day.

But here’s something remarkable: UNICEF purchases an incredible 80% of the world’s Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food Packets (RUTF). We are ready to deliver RUTF packets to those who need it, quickly and efficiently.

Donate in the next 48 hours to help us send 500,000 RUTF packets to children in need — before it’s too late.

At just 37 cents a packet RUTF packets are one of the most cost-effective impacts you can make upon the world’s most vulnerable children. These peanut-paste-filled packets help stop malnutrition in its tracks, bringing health to kids who can’t get the nutrition they need to grow and thrive.

Right now, when famine and near-famine conditions are ravaging thirteen countries, we need RUTF packets to save children’s lives.

Help us send 500,000 desperately-needed RUTF packets to the children who need it most — before it’s too late. Donate in the next 48 hours >>

If you move quickly, together we’ll save lives,

Enrollment Open for the ABF’s 20th Annual Summer BASIC Program

Please pass along the information below from our friends at BASIC:

Where BASIC has been pales in importance compared to where BASIC will be. Annually BASIC expands its academic and sports offerings to make the 130-hour program more fun.
 
The ABF has open enrollment for students ages 7 to 14 (grades one through eight) for its month-long program to be held in June at Hudson K 8 School in north Birmingham. This 20th annual program boasts a teaching staff that has never be equaled in BASIC annals. Ms. Debra Rainey, a veteran BASIC teacher of 20 years, will lead the math instruction. Reading expert and 12-year veteran, Ms. Lindi Wilson, helps students rehearse for life through BASIC books. Mr. Nathan Langston, sports and academics guru rounds out academics. Sports instructors, Mr. Julius Burrell, 19-year veteran and Mr. Ernesto Valladares, 6-year BASIC student, three-year BASIC volunteer and three-year head soccer instructor form the sports instructional team. Coach Kenneth McGaughy returns to BASIC to add to his six years of instruction in the program. Heading the program will be Ms. Alana Davis, a five-year veteran of BASIC.     No summer program can match Summer BASIC 2017 for experience and for caring for the children.
 
BASIC is offered to families of under-served children at a cost of $50.00 per family, irrespective of the amount of children enrolled.
