A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Saturday, March 31, 2007
The goats have now all been vaccinated and have their moving permits. The Tuesday after Easter we hope to have them travel here and be distributed. In the meantime, more training of reciepients has been going on, shelters are being built, and the field for fodder is being cultivated. The rains have started, which allows parisites to thrive, but they also help the growth of the fodder. The fodder is made up of grasses and legume plants (for protein).
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).
