Distribution: We started distributing the food to various Orphanage Homes, Churches, Organization, Individuals, Volunteers and Families,
on 15thMarch 2010.We are in partnership with them to give them regular resupply of food and other items to ease
the pressure in their home anytime we have enough food and other items to donate or distribute. Also I will be visiting them
and offer them free counseling, career counseling, training and spiritual support as needed, as part of our contribution towards
national development and building a better society with good future leaders. King James Foundation also work hand in hand
with this organization to fulfill its mandate and vision by given them all necessary assistance needed from us.
Monitoring and Supervision: The King James Foundation team is responsible for monitoring and
supervising all the activities of the feeding program to make sure the children are well fed and growing healthy. Reports
and photographs have been requested by the KJF from each partner to submit to us for assessments, evaluation, and progress
of the program. Rev.James S.Mensah will regularly visit each home in every month to see how the children are been fed and
their progress and offer free counseling and services to the children and all the staff and volunteers working to support
Country-Side Children’s Welfare Home Feeding
We were invited by Rev.James Mensah on the 15th March 2010 to come for some of the Kids
Against Hunger rice casserole for our children. We arrived at the warehouse in the morning about 10:00 am and after a short
briefing and some discussions concerning the food, we agreed to partner and participate.
We were given 50 boxes of
Kids Against Hunger foods by Rev.James Mensah. We started cooking for our kids in our home that same day, and saw that it
was good for them. At first, some of the kids did not want it as they have never tasted something like this before in their
life, but later they all started enjoying it. We have over 100 kids in our home with eight staff. The food has been a great
blessing to us.
There was one male child
who was very weak and could not stand up, walk, and talk properly, but after feeding him with the KAH food for some period,
he started making efforts to stand up with little support, and now he can walk and talk, praise God.
All our children started
growing fine and healthy with sharp minds to read and understand what they read; indeed, it’s really a food against
hunger and a mental recycling medicine.
It is our hope of prayer
that this programme would continue to reach other children who are affected by malnutrition, anemia, and kwashiorkor both
near and far for sound and healthy growth of our children.

SEED ORPHANAGE HOME FEEDING PROGRAME REPORT
On 10th March
2010, a food programme was organized and forms were brought to the Home to be filled after the forms were filled, the King
James Foundation led by Rev.James Solomon Mensah gave us 50 boxes of Kids Against Hunger foods.
The food was cooked and
given to the children in the home especially the malnourished kids. The first group that tasted the food is babies and toddlers.
Photos were taken on how the kids were before they started eating the food and after also. The food has been very nutritious
food where some of the food were even grinded into powder form and used as porridge for the kids.
The Kids really enjoyed
the food and the management itself could see a lot of dynamic changes and improvements.
Testimonies: All the
kids that were sick recovered within the third week of taking the food and started putting on more weight. It was observed
that the food helped the kids a lot and the malnourished ones put up weight that when you see them now you will be very happy
and the kids that were very sick, would not talk, walk recovered quickly and now can walk and talk properly.
Another miracle that happens
was, our monthly spending on hospital payments were drastically reduced to 1% instead of 80% within first five months we started
feeding the kids with Kids Against Hunger Foods.
A boy with HIV/AIDS who could to do anything due to body weakness and other weaknesses can now do all things
after eating the food. Energy is restored.
Lastly, we can say the feeding
program has been really helped the Royal Seed Home very much, and in so many ways as follows:
1. Instead of spending money
to buy bags of rice for the kids, the money was saved to do different projects, because the children eat 2 bags of rice at
a cost of $150 UD Dollars for morning, afternoon, and in the evening they eat local food like Banku.
2. Going to Hospitals regularly
stops this season because of the Kids Against Hunger Foods.
3. All malnourished children
grew very healthy and nicely and mentally strong.
We appreciate King James
Foundation and the Kids Against Hunger for creating such avenue and opportunity for the poor, orphans, wick, weak and the
malnourished kids in Ghana to have a better life today.
We hope and pray that this
program will continue and never stops so many lives can be always change and transformed for better living. Hope to receive
more foods in next supply.

Solid Foundation Ministry-Free Feeding Program Report
On the 15th March
2010, Rev.James S.Mensah invited us to come for free food to be given to our children and people of Ashongman Estate Community.
We were so glad when we got the news because we were facing severe hunger and most of our children in the church stopped coming
to Church even parents.
We went for the food and
on the 17th March 2010, and we were given 200 boxes of the Kids Against Hunger Food. We started cooking the food
in the evening around 5pm and on that day we had 90 children who came to eat the food and 30 parents, 20 youth and young adults.
The foods were good, and those who came around went about broadcasting about the free food program which causes a tremendous
increase in our next feeding day.
We cook the food every Thursdays,
Saturday and Sunday, and by so doing our dying church has received multiple increases from 10 members to 56 Adults and 120
children within 5 months. The food came at the right time to relieve us from starvation and hunger.
Ever since we started the
feeding program we have seen multiple changes in our membership, offerings, tithes, and financial increase. Our Sunday school
department also had increase in number within short period of time because of the free feeding.
Testimony: , Some
of the children who were weak, and cannot walk properly nor talk well started walking and talking properly after eating the
food for one month. It was surprised to hear the children saying they can now remember anything they learn from School and
at Church, which they used to forget. Those with kwashiorkor and anemia are now healthy and strong. There was a little boy
who cannot do anything excerpt his mother carried him up and down all the time, after eating the food for two weeks continuously
he started walking to the glory of God. We thank King James Foundation and Kids Against Hunger for making it possible for
us to have access to free food.
We pray this program continues
and never cease as many kids will die and suffer incase this program stops. We asked Kids Against Hunger and King James Foundation
to continue the program to save many lives in Ghana. We pledge that we shall support these Organizations with much prayer
and fasting for God to open doors and provide all the financial needs for enable them to sustain the program.

Grace Fellowship Church-Report
On the 1st of
August 2010,the King James Foundation, led by Rev.James S.Mensah came to Juaben, in the Ashanti region to discuss free feeding
and educational programs with us and after the meeting we agreed to partner with him and his organization to start the program.
Our church had 80 Adults on Sundays and 40 Kids on Sundays Church Service. We had opportunity to go around town to do evangelism
and by the grace of God we were able to save some kids and adults. We started sharing some few educational materials brought
in by Rev.James S.Mensah, Books, Pencils, and Office Files for Teachers, and other materials.
He came with Kids Against
Hunger Foods also to be prepared for all the kids. We organized one week revival with Him and at the end of the program which
was 8th August 2010,our Church attendance increased from 120 to 310, we had 210 kids and 100 adults because of
the feeding program.
We thank God for Kids Against
Hunger and King James Foundation, and also Rev.James S.Mensah for bringing such a wonderful program to Juaben in times like
this where high level of poverty, hunger and malnourished is killing many people here. We are grateful.
We believe that this program
will save many lives and bring more people to Christ as we have already seen signs of it.
Church attendance was great, as it increased from 120 to
310 in just one week after feeding both kids and parents. We saw joy, hope, happiness and life changing faces during the program.
Hope has been restored.

Challenges: There has been lot of challenges faced during distribution
and cooking the food for the kids. Some of the challenges are as follows:
- Transportation cost is very high.
- Cost of hiring men to load and offload the food from truck.
- Research of quality organizations and creating new centers for distributions.
- Cost of cooking the food, logistics, volunteers salaries, gas, plates, water and transport, as
we spend $150 weekly for this only.
- Port Challenges of national security trying to resist and delay the food at port.
- Lack of funding or financial support to ease tension mount on us weekly.
- Cost of monitoring, errands, visiting various feeding centers at various towns and villages.
- Children finding it very difficult to eat the food at first stage, until much education have been
done and experiments shown to them before accept and eat.
- Lack of official vehicle or car to move around which make it difficult for us and cost lots of
money on transportation daily.
