Full Tummy


After traveling for weeks with her family to reach safety in Uganda, Sumaya had her first hot meal in quite a long time. She was content, and her mother was relieved.

Visibly happier and more active, Sumaya played with a World Vision staff on hand to distribute a hot meal to refugees.

With not much strength left to wait in the long queue, Sumaya’s mother, Amandru, and her three children rested beside the tent where hot meals were served. They had walked for almost four weeks to reach the refugee reception center in Uganda.

World Vision staff offered to help get the meals for Amandru and her children. The four of them sat down near the tent, little Sumaya on her mother's lap. The children were eager to start eating, but Amandru made sure they all washed their hands before they touched the food. 

The four of them ate their meals. Their faces brightened. They were smiling. It was the first proper meal they have eaten in a long time.
