Some of the Money You're Raising in Today's CROP Walk...

Today is the day when several community and church volunteers will hold the CROP Walk in Albuquerque, and organizers have set a goal to raise $30,000 (along with attracting 300 walkers and 30 communities of faith).  Some of that money stays here in Albuquerque to help agencies like Project Share and The Storehouse.  But the lion's share goes to projects sponsored by Church World Service.  Perhaps you might want to know where a portion of the money goes. This video tells you about one such project. 

Children who don't receive adequate nutrition before their 5th birthday run the risk of developing life-long problems like stunting, blindness and cognitive disabilities. CWS fights chronic malnutrition with micronutrient powders: tasteless additives to food mothers are trained to give their children.
