Kenya’s children find hope through Christian recording artist

An opportunity to lead worship at a pastoral conference in Africa led to a life-altering personal mission for Christian recording artist Brandon Scott Smith, who has partnered with Kenya-based Manna Ministries to create the No Hungry Children initiative. The program will directly affect and potentially save the lives of thousands of poverty-stricken children each year.

Smith has launched a new initiative to raise $120,000 annually, so that an additional 2,000 children can eat each year, since it only costs $60 to feed a child for a full year.

He is also donating 100 percent of the sales of his latest album, See the Glory, to the No Hungry Children initiative. The first single, “Can’t Get Enough,” is currently being serviced to Christian radio stations nationwide.
