Hunger Hurts is not an organization.
Every penny lovingly donated goes for food. No organization, administration, or delivery fees.
As an individual, I simply hand out staples directly into the hands of the hungry, los hambrientos, from one of my windows that opens to the street.
As the first coordinator of the Homeless Veterans Program at the New Orleans Veterans Administration Hospital, I have had extensive experience with the down and out. As a result of the program, there are now 0% homeless veterans in the city.
Here in San Miguel de Allende, I make sincere eye contact and conversation with the adults who come for help. Light-hearted exchange with the kids while I do a discreet, informal triage checking for signs of malnutrition, hunger or starvation. As a retired psychotherapist, I also check for potential mental or mood issues.
I've worked with children in poverty in the now infamous Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina, I heard from victims who survived. This is when I learned that hunger is not just a growling stomach, it is excruciatingly painful. Other symptoms are vomiting, lethargy, confused state of mind and more.
Civil Listers have been very generous in the past, so I extend heart-felt gratitude to you.
If you'd like to help, please No amount too small or too big.
Helping is Easy
