Update on the Soup Kitchen in Ulaanbaatar

From 23 April 2012 till now, we have seen an increase in the number of beneficiaries: an average of 80 beneficiaries coming to the Soup Kitchen for the hot meals. We are providing quality food instead of quantity meals to the beneficiaries. We are very fortunate to have a Nutritionist from the US Embassy to advise us on the nourishment of the soup we are providing to the beneficiaries. By adding lentils/splits peas or chicken peas to the soup is a good way to improve the sustenance and nourishment of the meal. These are good source of protein and iron and are not expensive like meat. Also adding more vegetables to the soup would be good.
We have quite a number of Mongolian donating "in kinds" like rice, sugar milk, noodles, etc.
A generous volunteer from Switzerland has donated kitchen equipments to the Lamp of the Path NGO like electric oven, water heater, pressure cooker and rice cooker. Beside Soup Kitchen equipments, she also donated medical equipments to the Health Clinic.
We have raised approximately about 15 million MNT for the LOP and we are looking for more funds so we can bring hot meals on the wheels to those who are not able to come to the Community Centre.

The Community Center is located in one of the poorest district of Ulaanbaatar, the Bayanzurkh district. There we are running, besides the Soup Kitchen, also the Health Clinic (free medical clinic for diagnistics and distribution of medicines) and the Children Development Project, where children of all ages are involved in a number of activities during the after school periods.
