A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Wednesday, January 31, 2007
Hi, I’m Karen Masso. I’ve been living in Bundibugyo since 1995. The nutrition projects I’m currently involved in are the Matiti Project and the World Harvest Mission/Nyahuka Health Center Nutrition Program which carries out regular food distributions.
World Harvest Mission's current nutrition programs are focused on malnourished and at-risk children such as those with chronic illness, motherless or whose mothers have HIV. We support surrogate breastfeeding, dairy goat breeding, and the therapeutic feeding of inpatients and outpatients. Locally grown nourishment in the form of eggs, milk and soy/peanut powder is used more and more.
The BundiNutrition Fund of World Harvest Mission funds the Matiti Goat Milk Projects, Therapeutic Feeding Programs, BBB (Peanut Butter Project) and BundiNutrition Farm (Dairy Goats, Chickens and Demonstration Garden).
