For over thirty years Aid For Starving Children has been dedicated to helping children and families in need across four continents. Our focus has been feeding programs, building clean water systems, supporting children's homes for AIDS, orphans and victims of abuse, as well as providing shipments of medicines and medical supplies to hospitals and clinics in underprivileged regions across the globe. We believe that each life is of infinite value to God and that we have both the opportunity and the responsibility to affirm that value through our actions.

ASC currently operates in 12 countries across the globe. For more information about our projects and the countries we work in, please see our most recent Annual Report!

Aid for Starving Children is a Non-Profit 501 c(3) organization recognized by the IRS. All contributions to ASC are Tax-Deductible to the extent allowed by the law.

Emergency Aid

While the news hardly pays attention to Ethiopia, millions of children continue to be malnourished and perish in the East African country.

Homes & Education

The Samaritan Centers in Nakuru, Kenya are home to over 120 boys and girls. These children come from different parts of the country & desperately poor backgrounds.

Health & Nutrition

Each year, ASC is blessed to have the opportunity to provide invaluable shipments of lifesaving medicines and medical supplies to our partners.

What We Do

ASC supports emergency feeding programs in Ethiopia and South Sudan. Natural disasters, most often drought, increasing food prices, lack of agricultural infrastructure and poverty prevent families from thriving and keep children hungry in places like Ethiopia. In South Sudan, war and political unrest add to the problem. Large numbers of refugees fleeing the violence settle in informal camps under trees or along rivers with no means of supporting themselves. We seek out the neediest families, those that are not being helped by anyone else, and bring survival packages of food, tarps for shelters and water containers.

In Kenya, Uganda and Zambia, ASC supports food programs at schools and orphanages. It is impossible to run a school in any of these places without feeding the children at least once a day. Most of them come from desperately poor homes where there is not enough food for everybody. For them, the meal at school is the only meal of the day. But keeping the children fed is the biggest challenge for our project partners, and the largest budget item.

The Haitian projects we support include a community food program that prepares more than 1600 meals a day for needy children and a rescue clinic for starving children. Natural disasters, disease and lack of education, infrastructure and economic opportunity keep families struggling for survival. Similar problems prevent many people in the Philippines from breaking the cycle of poverty. We support a center for abused children and a supplemental feeding program for children in the community. Please, help us save children's lives today!
