HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HUNGRY?
You would be astounded to know how many children
in this world are abused, hungry, sick and helpless.
Robert Burns once wrote, "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless
Unfortunately, it is often the children who suffer most.
Fortunately, there are many wonderful people who are making a
difference here and there, in our own communities and throughout
the world. Many have sacrificed life's finer things in order to
give needy children a better life, a better hope, a better future
than they might otherwise experience if left in their poverty
and pain. That's what Hungry Kids International is all about.
Hungry Kids International
In 1986, Bob and Betty King
of Fort Worth, Texas, left their jobs and formed an organization
called Hungry Kids International. The first children's home was
founded in Mexico near the Texas border and opened the on June
2, 1986, providing loving Christian care, medical attention and
food to dozens of needy children. The home was called Casa Del
Rey (House of the King). Since that time, they have opened at
least two additional homes, with increasing numbers of children
coming under their care.
Where do the children come from?
Casa Del Rey receives children from a variety of avenues: some
are sent by the courts, others by the DIF (Mexican welfare office),
and some by parents or neighbors who know the children will be
loved and well cared for.
You can help!

in the larger world around them. But we also know how hard it
is to earn a buck, and we want our contributions to go somewhere
where they'll make a difference.
