There are so many charities in Canada to choose from – so how do you know you’ve made the right choice?

For most Canadians, trusting that your donation has been used efficiently and effectively to create a positive change in the world is a big priority.

That’s why Canadian Feed The Children takes reporting back to donors so seriously.

This commitment to financial transparency and accountability was recently recognized by the Financial Post, naming Canadian Feed The Children as a top Canadian charity for the second year in a row.

When you make a gift to Canadian Feed The Children, you can trust that your donation is being used to help transform children’s lives in Canada and around the world.

It’s why we can tell stories about children like Patience.

Patience is seven-years-old and lives with her mom, dad, and four older siblings in a small village in Uganda.

Her parents earn their living through small-scale farming. Patience attends school daily, where she receives a healthy meal, funded by caring Canadians like you.

Patience loves to sing and to learn new words in English. She plays dodgeball with her friends. She wants to be a nurse when she grows up, so she can help support her family.

Patience enjoys what every child deserves – a healthy, happy and hopeful childhood.

But it wasn’t always that way. Before she started receiving meals at school, she missed class often. Her parents struggled to feed their five children enough nutritious food.

Patience had a hard time focusing in class and her health was poor. Like many children in the countries where we work, she faced an uncertain future.

Then her future was changed because of the generosity of Canadians like you.

The Financial Post chose Canadian Feed The Children as one of 23 top Canadian charities this year because of our commitment to reporting on the work that we do. We’ll always keep you informed about the impact of your donations – so together, we can transform more children’s lives like Patience.
