A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Sunday, August 26, 2007
Many thanks to our faithful prayer and financial supporters!! Your support is helping us purchase ingredients for therapeutic milk (milk, sugar, oil) to strengthen and heal malnourished children like Mukuuni (see picture on the right). Many of you have supported the chicken project ~ the hens have begun laying eggs, given to malnourished inpatients at the local health center (see Basaija with some of the first eggs, picture on the left). We are so grateful for your partnership in spreading God’s love to malnourished and at-risk children in Bundibugyo.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.” Is 58:9b – 11a
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).
