Infant Milk Supplement Story: From Trash to Treasure

Meet 'Bemvinda Graca', translated as 'Welcome Grace', who was found abandoned by her Mama in a rubbish dump. Her Uncle followed the sounds of what he thought was a hungry kitten in the trash, and instead found his precious niece. Today Graca is lovingly cared for by the uncle and his wife, and Iris is pleased to provide them with powdered milk formula. As the photo shows, this little one is a treasure!

March 2015 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

We have made some major changes in the team late last year. We have restructured the group so that our team has more education, can take on more responsibility, and rely less on the missionaries.

Some of the changes are mandatory from Social Welfare, and other changes have been made to meet internal needs.

We have changed the format of our files and now have both an electronic and a paper copy of each child.

Last year we reintegrated approximately 32 children and built a number of houses for families to enable the children to be reintegrated.

 

September 2014 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Angelo, Antonio, and Abel, a set of triplets, began with our milk program at 6 weeks of age. Their weights were all well below the WHO -3Z score for their ages.

Over the last six weeks, as they have consistently received the milk supplements, all 3 of them have gained a little more than one and a half kilograms each.
