This months Shining Stars are the many friends of our very own Peter and Ros Raynes who, from back home in Australia have helped them fund the majority of the rice we use both for Breakfast Club and for the monthly rice drops to the village families. As rice is a commodity, the price fluctuates and is currently sitting at $24 per 50 Kg bag. We just completed a rice drop and we used 12 x 50 Kg bags for this. Now that Breakfast Club is up and running we may be looking at an increase in the monthly order, 20 bags a month is going to cost us $480, part of the monthly operational costs of ABCs and Rice. The photo shows Ros handing out the 3.5 Kg bag of rice which is issued to every child once a month.
