- Janet Easley, an Indianapolis resident, has been feeding the deprived for nearly 40 years
- The benevolent woman fed ten thousand people in 2018
- Easley has said that 2019 will not be different
Kind-hearted Janet Easley has been serving Thanksgiving dinner to thousands of needy people in central Indiana every holiday for the last 38 years.
Indianapublicmedia writes that Janet Easley has welcomed everyone to the Turner Family Thanksgiving Meal, which will be held at three locations across Indianapolis in 2019.
Easley has invited everybody including children and parents especially single parents going through hard times.
She will be serving "Turkey, potatoes or mashed potatoes, corn and green beans.''
Easley doesn’t do it alone; she gets help from 200 volunteers, plus inmates from the Indiana Women’s Prison who cook the turkeys.
Easley fed nearly ten thousand people last year and she expects close to the same number this year.
''I feel content, when I know that I did something to make someone happy,'' Easley is quoted by Indianapublicmedia.org.
Meanwhile, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s former minister of finance, recently visited the largest slum in Africa called Kibera. During her visit, she said she was humbled by the resilience of people living in the settlement.
According to her, most of the people who stay in the slum were those who migrated from rural areas in search of jobs and a better life.
In a part of her post on Facebook, she tied the slum to one of the challenges that inadequate housing, overpopulation, and poverty create, adding that they also bring about serious health challenges.
