Maisha Project Feeding the Hungry in Kenya Fund
Right now, the climate crisis and rising food prices are contributing to the worst global hunger crisis we’ve seen in a century and children are paying the highest price. The Maisha Project team is working in several regions in Kenya to provide lifesaving support to vulnerable/impoverished children and families on the brink of starvation. Due to the drought, rising food prices, the Ukrainian crisis, and economic fallout from Covid, families throughout Kenya are struggling to feed their children even one meal a day. No child should be left hungry. The Maisha Project teams with Feed My Starving Children to provide the food, and The Maisha Project coordinates the logistics and distribution. Helping one person may not change the world, but it will change the world for that one person!

To claim, contact Dave Dibert on LinkedIn, Webex, or email dadibert@cisco.com with the date and time of your gift, and if a donation of a qualified amount came in at that time, Dave will send you a POAP. POAPs are digital mementos, minted in celebration of life's remarkable moments. Each POAP is a gift from an issuer to collectors, in celebration of a special shared memory. By minting these memories to the blockchain, collectors build a rich tapestry of tokenized experiences that unlock a world of possibilities. More info about POAPs can be found at https://poap.xyz/.

Feeding the Hungry Global Fund
I invite you to be a part of feeding the hungry living in poverty in Egoli South Africa and the surrounding area. Today, a few times a week, the neediest of people of Egoli get a light meal brought in by the local Mountain View Community Centre of porridge, bread, and sometimes chicken broth soup. Cisco Employees: Please use this fund: https://cisco.brightfunds.org/funds/feeding-the-hungry-in-south-africa ---- Through this fund and volunteer distribution efforts, we would like to provide additional food in Egoli by delivering food to each household they can prepare on their own with water. The goal of this fund is to provide at least a bag of food (6 meals) to every person in Egoli (~7,000 people), as far as funding and distribution resources allow. This fund can also provide food to people in other squatter camps in the area (~25,000 people). Arrangements are also being made by the International Sports Federation & Chick-Fil-A for 70 gap year students to visit Egoli and the surrounding areas in January 2023. One of the many things these students plan is to do us pack and distribute food in Egoli. Dave hopes to be there in January 2023 with Cisco's Time2Give support to report back on the great work there! A special thanks to Cisco who is positively impacting our communities and people in poverty. South Africa plays an important role in helping Cisco achieve a goal of positively impacting one billion lives by 2025. Anyone can donate here and Cisco employees will also get a matching gift making your donation go twice as far! Cisco employees can reach out to Dave Dibert to help or hear more personal stories from his visits there.
