Fighting Hunger in Africa

Food for Life Africa is planning  several feeding programs to benefit needy and hungry people in the East & Central Africa regions benefiting countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Congo, Uganda, Somalia, Sudan,  Tanzania, etc

“Sub-Saharan Africa has the largest concentration of hungry people in the world,” says, Eyoh.

“There are thousands of destitutes on our streets in Africa  that are hungry majority of whom are helpless children, women and old people.”

The Food for Life is a revival of India’s ancient Vedic culture of hospitality by uniting people through pure food. Food for Life aims to eradicate hunger and malnutrition in Africa by liberally distributing free plant-based meals to the needy throughout the continent.

Food for Life has been active in Africa for more than 25 years and has served tens of millions of free meals. There are active Food for Life programs in Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Togo, Kenya, Uganda, etc.
