A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Sunday, March 23, 2008
Remember Vumiliya? The sweet child with the very sick mother who received a dairy goat? Well, her mother is doing better, well enough to bring Vumiliya to the health center to receive beans and eggs and to get ARV drugs~ What a happy day when we can give nutritious easter eggs away!
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).
