Tribe pitcher Justin Masterson helps Feed Their Future in Kenya
This November, Cleveland Indians pitcher Justin Masterson traveled to Kenya to participate in the Feed Their Future project with Bright Hope, an organization that helps bring hope to those living on less than $1 a day.
Justin visited Mathare Valley, one of the largest slums in Nairobi, Kenya. Children there are faced with having to decide whether to go to school hungry or spend their day searching for food. Feed Their Future combines education with two warm meals every day, so that children can earn a degree and create better lives for themselves.
Masterson met the with children, ladling soup and speaking at the school and church. Check out Feed Their Future in action with these videos from Masterson’s trip to Kenya:
When he was nominated for the Roberto Clemente award, Justin said, “To whom much is given, much is required, and I try to live by that.”
