  • It costs US$10 to feed a boy in a Kenya refugee camp for 3 weeks, less than the cost of a lipstick in Manhattan.
  • It would cost US$3.5 billion to feed every hungry schoolchild in the world. That’s around two times the takings from the movie, “Titanic”, which grossed US$1.8 billion worldwide.
  • It costs  US$50 to feed a schoolgirl for one year;  similar to the cost of one iPod shuffle (US$45)
  • One super-healthy ration of Plumpy’Sup for a small child is just 20 cents, less than a US postage stamp (44 cents).

Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
Words cannot describe the emptiness.
There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
