Thanks to the efforts of the youth of the Serbian Orthodox cathedral in Chicago, dozens of malnourished African children will have enough to eat for an entire year.

On Friday, November 26, the old calendar feast of St. John Chrysostom, the teen youth group of Holy Resurrection Cathedral volunteered at Feed My Starving Children, a Christian non-profit that helps feed starving and malnourished children all over the world.

The youth’s efforts were supported by His Grace Bishop Longin of New Gračanica, who helped the youth pack 15,336 meal packets that will feed 42 children in Africa for an entire year, reports the Serbian Diocese of New Gračanica and Midwestern America.

“On the doorstep of Advent and in the spirit of almsgiving, the youth were happy to see how their volunteering had a direct impact on helping feed hungry children… The youth understand that we have so many of God’s blessings to be thankful for, and that we should always try to help those in need,” the diocese reports.

In January, the Serbian Eastern American Diocese collected school supplies for Kosovo students. Over the summer, the Serbian Diocese of Canada raised thousands to feed the hungry in Montenegro.
