Day 5: Carley's Feeding Experience

This is Taylor Matthews handing out the food to the children during the feeding.

Children lining up to get their meal.  They would come with any container they could find.

This morning I had the opportunity to do a feeding in a local village. KIM does two feedings everyday where they go to a different village and distribute food. We brought two large containers full of food and soon as we unloaded it from the car, kids flocked to us with bowls and cups in hand. It was so awesome to see the excitement in the kid's faces when they received the food. People were literally using any container they could find to hold food. As we were driving back from the village, I noticed how there is such an extreme difference between the rich and the poor here in the Philippines. Literally right across the road from the village there was a community of nice houses in a nice neighborhood.  It's definitely not something you see everyday. It was really sad to see all these people living in poverty in the village, but it felt good doing what we could to help them.
