Summary

An African clinic needs jars of protein-rich peanut butter to reverse severe malnutrition in 600 HIV-positive children. Donations can help pay for this life-saving intervention.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Tsepong Clinic in Lesotho serves 600 HIV-positive children a year, many of them severely malnourished. Because it is protein-rich, peanut butter can help reverse malnutrition in HIV-positive people and strengthen their immune systems. Peanut butter does not spoil, is energy dense, and is given in small amounts to a malnourished individual. $25 can provide a malnourished child with one month’s supply of the protein he/she needs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Donations will defray the costs of buying peanut butter and allow malnourished children to benefit from this nutritional supplement.

Potential Long Term Impact

As of right now, the clinic currently cares for 600 children and mothers in their their clinic. If this project is successful then we have the potential of increasing the clinic to serving over 1,000 people.
