So many people were hungry…..
The first of our anticipated 3 monthly issues took place in December 2016, so hundreds of people had food for Christmas. This was followed by a double distribution at the end of January 2017 to the 300 families assessed as acutely vulnerable, providing maize and soap for 2 further months -
January 2017, on our site ….
Representatives from some of the 300 families eagerly await their portion ….
The identity of each participant is checked against our lists. This basic food sustains life in many cases -
The soap and sometimes dried soya meals are a luxury to many -
& phala programmes
Twice a month, dozens of frail elderly folk make their way to our site for a special lunch -
Each fortnight, between 30 and 40 people are served with a nutritious meal, followed by singing and dancing -
Our staff engage with our visitors, affirming their value and importance in a culture that is severely stressed, unsupportive, and hungry themselves.
We also grow vegetables for the frail -
Dozens of local people are invited to share as the crop is continually harvested on site.
We also grow moringa -
All year we have been quietly plodding along in the background, producing and delivering our nutritious goats milk to over 50 malnourished babies each week, at two satellite Centres:
Namata and Phodogoma, plus our own site.
Babies are gaining strength and weight, despite the
difficulties their families have had in feeding them.
Local Comment: “The guardians expressed their thanks for the milk and likuni phala because their children are now growing in health and strength.”
Additionally, another 40 toddlers are also receiving “likuni phala”, a maize-
They are likely orphans, or could be aids-
We always promote “breast is best” but there are so many cases of inability to feed, and consequently failure to thrive.
