A team from KAH - Tulsa, consisting of Marshall and Sherry Horn, Directors, Dr. Gary Lee and Melissa Lee, Dr. Regina Williams, Deborah Rector, all Advisory Board members, and Candace Lee, KAH videographer, made the trip into Haiti.

MEXICO

Hunger is the number one complaint of under-priviledged people throughout Mexico.
Mexico's National Institute of Nutrition reports 350 people die each day in that country from hunger and related diseases.


Extreme poverty in Mexico is widespread and the need for food is continual due to lack of ability to grow sufficient crops.
The hunger crisis has hit the indigenous communities especially hard. 

Kids Against Hunger in Tulsa has been sending food into Mexico since December, 2003.  Jimmy and Yvonne Jones, Trustees/Board members of Kids Against Hunger of Tulsa work with Pastor Frank Gonzales of LaFeria, TX, to distribute the food in several areas in Reynosa, Matamoras and far into the mountainous areas of Mexico.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Williams conducted free
medical clinics while the rest of the team 
handled the food distribution all over the
southern part of the country.

LOCAL AREAS

Each Kids Against Hunger satellite keeps a portion of the food they package for local area outreaches.
