Students in Bolivia are Waiting to Hear from You
Summary Text: 

Providing nutritious meals in school is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways we can make a difference in the life of a child. Kids of the Huarimarca School in Bolivia receive a WFP meal every day at school - and they're waiting to hear from you. Ask them a question and we will send you their answers. And if you feel you want to make a next step, consider investing in their future by donating to support WFP school meals programmes in Bolivia.
