Meet Eggs

In July, the first egg delivery of the “Yolk for All” program was made. A local charity delivered 4 liters of milk, two dozen eggs, and an extra special treat of a package of cookies to children from Roble Unión. The delivery was a success, benefiting more than 300 families to improve the nutrition of growing boys and girls. RCM scheduled two more deliveries in August. Amazingly, each egg has 6 grams of protein. A growing child between the ages of 4 and 8 needs at least 20 grams of protein daily, which is hard to do with a plant-based diet. Many children in communities south of Mérida live in extreme poverty and suffer from malnutrition. With your help, Philip Hayden Foundation will begin supporting this humanitarian outreach in September. Your gift of $40 will provide milk and eggs for four children.
