A Blog of World Harvest Mission's Nutrition Programs in Bundibugyo, Uganda
Saturday, March 1, 2008
As we demonstrated the Universal Nut Sheller to visitors from the U.S. and for the small trading center of Busunga (situated half a mile from the DRC), I was reminded of the generosity of the Full Belly Project in providing two shellers free of charge. We pray that the sheller will make life easier for many people, including Aisha, the woman who is the steward of the sheller. She is a very hard working farmer.
Jock Brandis, the creator of the machine, was featured on CNN Heroes recently, the link is: http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/02/28/heroes.brandis/index.html?iref=newssearch
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).
