500 calories

Next month will be the one year anniversary of our Plumpy Nut nutritional program at Lola Children’s Home in Mekelle, Ethiopia.

Five days a week 22 of the 30 children at Lola consume one foil pack of Plumpy nut which contains 500 calories. The staff at Lola has seen wonderful results over the past 11 months. We’ve had weight gain in every child, vast improvements in learning and overall good health.

Plumpy Nut is a peanut-based nutritional supplement for malnutrition. Your generosity has made this project a success.  Many of these children are HIV affected and the need for additional nutrition is essential to their health.

The weekly cost for 22 children is $11.50 making this a cost effective nutritional program.

This week we received a new photo of the children receiving their plumpy nut.

Many thanks to YOU our amazing donors for helping with this project.
