In Missionvale township, South Africa, food is a constant concern every day of the year. For the Missionvale Care Center, food is the most difficult commodity to raise money for, yet, it is the most basic necessity and critical for survival to people in Missionvale.

Words from Sr. Ethel
"There's no point in giving medication without food. I've grown into the fact of knowing that food is medication in Africa today.
Everyday over 600 to 800, sometimes 1,000 heads of family come to us for one half loaf of bread and a cup of full of raw soup."
