Famine Friday!

On Friday 2nd June Foyle College Junior School students participated in Famine Friday!  This event saw some students  voluntarily giving up a meal or two during the weekend.  The  purpose of this event was to have empathy with young people in Africa who very often go without food on a daily basis.  We were delighted to welcome Father  Miningi from Tanzania to give a talk in assembly to the students.  He informed them of the hardship faced by people their age in Tanzania. 

Children very often have chores to do before school, like fetching water, so are often up at 5.30 am.  Once they have finished their chores they may run to school, which starts at 7.30am.  rarely would the family have enough food to give them breakfast at home.  In school they are entitled to a meal at school twice a week (if the school can supply the meal).  In times of famine, they may return home to a very small, or no dinner at all.  Every second 3.6 children die in the world due to hunger and hunger kills more people every year than TB, Malaria and AIDS combined.  The event was a total success and the students raised more than £500.
