Thank you! thank you very much for the over whalming donations towards the training of 50 mothers on best feeding pracitces. We did it, it was wonderful!

Mountains of Hope partnered with the Mpigi District Health officers (Nutrition department) to train 50 mothers on breast feeding, preparation of PD Hearth (a mixture of nutritious food).

"Am happy I can be able to prepare the best nutritious meal for my daughter using the locally available food" said Annet, amother to baby Anitah

Mothers together with the Village Health Trainers attended and learnt to prepare the best nutritious children meals, these mothers came along with their babies, most of the babies that were not healthy were subjected to a nutritious diet there and then after being measured using MUAC (Mid Upper Arm Circumference) tapes.

Mothers that came along with their children fed them with the nutritious meal they learnt to prepare at the training. The meal included fresh beef, vegetables, irish potatoes, fresh beans, powdered silver fish, smoked fish and many more.

After the training mothers will be trained on growing of vegetables in their back yards, they will grow rich in vitamins, zinc, etc vegetables to enable them feed well their children.

The numbers of malnourished children is expected to dramatically reduce from 70% to 20% in the coming yeat as a result of this training and sensitization.

Hi,

Its finally here, our first training day will be November 03rd, 20 mothers are expected to attend, different foods with quality food value will be bought to facilitate the training, many children are expected to be fed well, the next training will be the other week, targeting 30 mothers. "Am glad my son is healthy again" said amother of a child that received nutrition support from us.

Our objective is to reduce mortality related to the most common diseases among children under 5 years of age in 24
health areas.

This will be achieved through the promotion of essential family practices, the establishment of community networks and communication activities at community level.

 

But finally today is bonus day, your donation will multiply by 30%, how great and enjoyable to watch your donation grow, you put in $50, it multiplies, some one else donates $80 and it multiplies, we will meet our goal and save lives as easy as that, lets go..........

Remember, the earlier the better, if you donate before funds run out, the better. Many people are competing for these funds, matching begins at 9:00 a.m. EDT and lasts until funds run out or 11:59 p.m. EDT

Dear,

OK. Here's the report:

I have just been discussing with the Government Health officials on the nutrition day training, a cause you are supporting, it’s wonderful, they are set to carry out the training, the community has been mobilized, the donations are coming in from Globalgiving donors, that’s great!, "am glad many children will be healthy again in my community, perhaps infant mortality rates will reduce" says chair man local council one of Kafumu village. "I almost lost my son, I didnt know it was malnutrition, I thought it was withcraft, but when this organization sensitized my village on nutrition, I have started giving my children balanced diet" a mother of three quoted.

We have so far raised $280 from you to carry out this trainings in our community, we still have abalance of $800. However there is an opportunity Globalgiving is offering for organizations raising money on their site, all donations given on 15th October will be multiplied, here is how it goes:

Globalgiving is offering a 30% match on all donations up to $1,000 per donor per project, while funds remain. There is $75,000 available in matching and matching begins at 9:00 a.m. EDT and lasts until funds run out or 11:59 p.m. EDT.  There is also $2,000 in bonus prizes available!

We need about $ 800 in these last few hours to reach our goal. Just imagine your donation multiplying by 30%

Can we do it? I believe so. 

And you only have a few hours left to make sure malnourished children in Uganda survive and live life to its fullness.


Only a few hours left to give a child a gift of health  and offer knowledge to mothers on best feeding their children.
 

Will we meet our goal on 15th October? 

I’m counting on you!

Annet was born last year in January, her mother is a single mother, she doesnt know the where a bouts of the husband as he abandoned them at home due to financial constraints, she struggles to make a living with her five malnourished children, they fall sick most of the time, she can not balance their diet nor can she afford money for hospital, two years ago, she lost a child to malnutrition, this year, she was losing her last born had it not been for the support we offered the family.

When you look at Annets back, you may think its of a very old person, her face is wrinkled, her arms are tiny and has brown hair.

Malnutrition is one of the number one killers in Africa as children 0-59 months do not have enough nutrients to help them grow. We realised that one of the needs of the communities is carrying out sensitizations among mothers to give information on care for children 0-59 months and provision of some food for starters. Most parents serve children with cassava and water for lunch and supper, yet cassava has only carbohydrates as a food value.

This training aimed at targetting mothers will improve on the feeding of children and adults in the community where we work.

Will you save 50 children today from dying of malnutrition?
