Meet Megan Fabian, Mount Mercy Academy Class of 2016. She is taking action to feed vulnerable people all over the world
Editor: In this Year of Mercy we have all been asked by Pope Francis to 'open our eyes...see the misery of ...our brothers and sisters and...recognize that we are compelled to heed their cry for help' (MV 15).
'After learning that hunger kills more people annually than malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS combined, I decided to act,' says Megan Fabian, Mt Mercy Academy New York senior student on her online fundraising website on GoFundMe. She has joined the 'Stop Hunger Now' campaign, an organisation driven by a vision of a world without hunger in our lifetime, which works with volunteers like Meagan who raise funds to package dehydrated, high protein and highly nutritious meals for vulnerable people the world over.
Megan has achieved her fundraising goal of $US3,000 to package 10,000 meals costing 29 cents each. She has the support of her school community; 50 student volunteers from the Senior class and others will be packing the meals with her on 2 May.
Megan believes that we can change the world. She knows she can't do it alone. If you are in a position to assist Megan to exceed her target, you can donate here.
