A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Tuesday, March 11, 2008
This guy doesn't look very happy! A few weeks ago I visited the homes of some of our nutrition patients. This is Tugume Yoas, his mother is preparing food for him, provided by one of the outpatient feeding centers. Yoas was slightly below the growth curve when he came into the program, and looks better every day, thanks to the love and care of his mother.
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).
