Too Hungry To Learn

Imagine being so hungry you couldn’t concentrate on anything else. That’s all 10-year-old Arely could think about when she was in school. Learn what you did to change her life. Read Transcript


9-YEAR-OLD ARALUS HAD A

SERIOUS PROBLEM FOCUSING AND

EVEN LEARNING IN SCHOOL

SIMPLY BECAUSE SHE WAS

HUNGRY.

BEING HUNGRY IS AWFUL.

I HAD PAIN IN MY STOMACH.

Reporter: ARALUS'

FATHER HAD BEEN UNEMPLOYED

FOR MONTHS.

HER MOTHER GOT UP AT DAWN TO

MAKE BREAD TO SELL.

THAT BROUGHT IN ENOUGH TO

GIVE THE FAMILY ONE MEAL A

DAY.

THAT MEANT MOST NIGHTS

ARALUS WENT TO BED HUNGRY.

I WOULD FALL ASLEEP AND

DREAM THAT MY MOM BROUGHT ME

A PIECE OF CHICKEN AND

SALAD.

BUT WHEN I WOKE UP, IT WAS

JUST A DREAM.

Reporter: ONE MORNING,

ARALUS WENT TO CHURCH WITH

HER MOTHER AND SISTER, AND

HEARD ABOUT A NEW PROGRAM TO

A LOCAL ORPHANAGE BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." AND THE?

PROGRAM EVEN TEACHES THEM

ENGLISH.

AFTER JUST A FEW WEEKS AT

THE CENTER, ARALUS WAS LIKE

A DIFFERENT CHILD.

AND SINCE "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

IS PROVIDING THOSE TWO EXTRA

MEALS A DAY, SHE IS NO

LONGER HUNGRY AND IS DOING

MUCH BETTER IN SCHOOL.

I WANT TO THANK YOU,

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," BECAUSE

YOU HELPED ME SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.
