In China, Operation Full Belly is Underway!Posted by Foundation Guru
The Collette Foundation is excited to work with our partner, The Starfish Foster Home in Xi’an, to help fund their new program – Operation Full Belly.
The home houses about 50 babies. That’s 50 bellies to feed a few times a day, 365 days each year. That adds up to over 54,000 bellies to fill each year… which, let’s face it, makes for a pretty hefty grocery bill.
Expenses related to nutrition works out to approximately:
- Food — $33,000
- Whole milk — $10,100
- Formula — $42,000
We are only too happy to jump in and get involved with this great project to keep the children — the home’s “little starfishes” — well-nourished until they are adopted.
