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 thousands mourn."

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!

It is my belief and conviction that deep in their hearts most people want to do more than they are doing to help meet needs 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.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE is to introduce you to Bob and Betty King. Their generosity made a difference in our lives at one of its critical junctures. I know that if you want to be part of something that will make a difference in a life, becoming a supporter of Hungry Kids International will be a very satisfying experience. The Kings are fully given to the children they serve and lead.

Hungry Kids International is a non-profit religious organization.
