e'Pap - An African Solution to Hidden Hunger

Dear Supporter,

Thirteen years ago a product appeared in the South African market place that quickly became known as “Miracle Pap”. This pre-cooked porridge branded as e’Pap, preserves the innate nutrients found in full grain cereal. e’Pap is fortified with 28 nutrients designed to maximize absorption to the body. The state of the art American technology used in e’Pap mimics nutrients in a “food state” form. The formulation behind e’Pap focuses on achieving a condition of nutrient repleteness in which the body can perform optimally.

The e’Pap formulation objective is to reverse the consequences that result from a sterile food chain. This hidden hunger is different from a lack of food. It is a chronic lack of vitamins and minerals.

Hidden Hunger is potentially devastating and can lead to mental impairment, poor health, low productivity, and death. One in three people in the world suffer from hidden hunger. Poverty-stricken women and children in developing countries are the most affected.

e’Pap is now used in 15 African countries, providing up to two million food portions a month. The word of mouth impact, referred to as the “5 day e’Pap effect”, has been clinically evaluated in various studies, as far afield as Benin. A clinical trial conducted by Wits Medical School on young children has been internationally published (PLOS ONE). It explains the extensive positive feedback from across the continent.

e’Pap, a home grown African solution, is a practical, effective nutritional intervention that helps address the “hidden hunger”. Most important, this simple, easy to use product presents a practical cost effective way to deliver many important nutrients found in a healthy well balanced diet.

Thank you for starting the beginnings of this project and hopefully we get more donors on board and fill more stomachs! 

All the best

Support of the community

Dear Supporter, 

It has been a quiet beginning of the year but we are working towards our next trip! The Desert2Surf team are currently trying to organise for two 12 year old boys, from a remote community in the NT who previously stand up paddled with D2S, to visit Melbourne paid for by your donations for surfing, football and a school visit, possibly accompanied by their mother.

Once we have this trip confirmed, we will be in touch to do a little introduction about the boys and talk about the plans for the trip.

We have also been seeing some great community support for Desert2 surf and the work being done. The CEO of their Community has been is touch, confirming his support of the trips, which is fantastic and helps the trip and project to gain momentum and become a reality! 

Thank you for continuing to support this project.

All the best

Charitable Trust Funded Neutering Clinic

Dear Supporter,

The generous donations to the GVI Charitable Trust from people like you now mean that GVI and the Fiji SPCA are in a position to move forward with further project planning for a Charitable Trust Funded Neutering Clinic in partnership with the SPCA. GVI will utilize the expertise and knowledge of the SPCA to target areas of the Fiji Mainland of Viti Levu where dogs are most vulnerable to malnutrition and abuse. These funds will be key to financing the required equipment and logistics for the clinics so we can help with combatting the issue of animal welfare on the island. The implementation of a neutering program will reduce the number of litters of homeless puppies born per year

We look forward to bringing you more news shortly on how the clinic progresses. Thank you for supporting  and understanding the importance of this project.

All the best
