A girl in Mongolia receives food from a Holt social worker

Children and families living at the edge of the garbage dump in Ulaanbaatar received much-needed food deliveries from Holt donors.

Atlan couldn’t wait to eat the noodles his family received.

When Atlan’s family received a big bag of noodles, he immediately picked it up and hugged it. That’s how much even the littlest children are thankful for emergency food deliveries, made possible by Holt donors. 

This children and families who received these deliveries live at the edge of the garbage dump in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. They truly live hand to mouth, sometimes even rummaging through the refuse to find their next meal… That’s why the gift of an emergency food delivery was so important! 

“These families regularly experience food insecurity,” says Paul Kim, Holt’s director of programs for Mongolia who was there to help deliver the food. 

With funds from Holt donors, social workers in Mongolia bought and brought them bags of noodles, rice, flour, bread, cooking oil, milk and more. 

“Any additional food they can get helps them feed their children and themselves. The families were all very grateful, and expressed their thanks to us.”

This emergency food delivery included rice, flour, cooking oil and more. And as you can tell by the photo, Atlan was so happy to get a bag of noodles! 

These food deliveries help to fill empty bellies, and give these children and families the dignity of safe and nutritious food.
