IMC Project Updates

May 2013 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

The program continues much the same as in our previous updates. We thought the best encouragement would be to share just one of many recent stories of lives being transformed. 

Baby Flórida was born June 1, 2012. At 8 months of age, after her mother died, an Aunt brought this little one to our milk program. When we first met and weighed Florida she was 8.1 lbs. and was completely malnourished. Now, only two months later, she is weighing in at 10.4 lbs.. Because of our help, this child will survive. This gives us such great hope.  Thank you from Mozambique to Canada!

April 2013 Child Reintegration Project Update

Since our last update in 2012, 26 children have gone back to live with family. This is miraculous. God created family, and so what a privilege it is to reunite children with mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers and sisters.

Iris Canada is instrumental in this process, providing transport, building houses, providing food and shelter; giving these children a future and a hope.

One of the stories is of Manito and Nelinho.

These two young men have been at the centre since they were very young (four years old).

April 2012 Zimpeto Reintegration Project

April 2013 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

Our youngest child is 6 months and our oldest 18. In between we hit every age and every stage. We have temper tantrums and we have changing hormones. We have those who are learning to walk, and those who are learning to fly. Our newest girls are settling in so well with their house mother, Ruth. A few weeks ago all 72 kids were out in the field harvesting beans. It was wonderful to watch them working together, laughing and chatting as they worked.  

April 2013 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

There are two quite different approaches we could be pursuing through our various food programs for poor orphaned and vulnerable children in remote northern Mozambique. We could spread what resources are available to us as widely as possible to make some kind of positive difference in the lives and circumstances of as many children as possible. And at one level, that would make sense, as it would help alleviate a degree of wide-spread childhood suffering. On the other hand, while most poor children are indeed suffering and severely deprived, few are actually starving in this area today.
