The Charity Eat BCH Focuses On Feeding South Sudanese Families with Food Paid for With Bitcoin Cash Donations

The Twitter handle and nonprofit organization Eat BCH has been helping individuals and families in Venezuela by providing them with food to eat thats purchased with the cryptocurrency bitcoin cash. When a person visits the Twitter page they can scroll through hundreds of pictures showing Eat BCH feeding Venezuelans in need. Each picture says @eatBCH with the date the crew visited throughout various locations like a childrens center or a senior citizens home. So far the Eat BCH team has amassed a whopping 16.84 BCH or $18,427 USD at the time of publication and that money goes a long way in Venezuela.

Now Eat BCH is helping people in South Sudan, a region located in East-Central Africa that is facing significant economic hardships right now. The people in South Sudan have a lack of necessary supplies like good water, food, and theres a shortage of money. The region is currently dealing with a civil war and over the past few weeks, mainstream media has been focusing their attention on the horrific and heartbreaking stories taking place in South Sudan. The crew at Eat BCH has decided to help individuals and families from South Sudan and they have been focusing their efforts on feeding people living in the African territory this week.

On the first day on May 31, the Eat BCH team stated it was rainy in Sudan but over 50 people came to eat food that day.

Our first day and a rainy day and the line is out the door! Over 50 people came to eat today, explained the charity.

The economic crisis has put pressure on every family in South Sudan so we are finding our way to help where we can. This is how communities come together!
