Packing it all in

Just like last Tuesday, we are preparing for feeding malnourished children currently being treated at the hospital with additions to their rice porridge today. It’s exciting today for 1 major reason: we have a real certified dietician to speak to them. Sarah, a recently transplanted nasara, is working at the nutrition center a few kilometers down the road. Her and her husband moved to Béré three weeks ago, with him working as a mission pilot. We are excited for this young addition to our extended team here in Béré.

Unfortunately, the feedings are the relaxed part of today. We also must travel to visit as many village chiefs today as we can to prepare for the up coming trainings of community health workers, traditional birth attendants, and the presenting of community health lectures. It’s truly energizing to meet with the chiefs to share what we want to do with them and their community members.

Please consider a donation at the top of this blog page. We have many things we need to purchase such as medical kits for the new trainees, food for the malnutrition feedings, and saving for our transportation fund. If you would like to help in any of these ways, please don’t hesitate to click how to help or email us directly!
