Madge Davey - Charity Manager
Mother and Baby Centre
Each year we provide, training and nutritious food for 600 malnourished Mothers and their babies. Some of our Mothers are now breast-feeding again. We are very happy to report that our babies are now gaining weight and looking more content.
We teach our young Mothers how to make the most nutritious food possible out of their meagre supplies. Health and Hygiene training together with a better understanding of the relationship between dirt and disease makes up an integral part of this programme, we believe that education is the best tool we can give to ensure that these babies have the best chance of survival.
The School of Hope
′The School of Hope′; this is a school for children with special needs, located in Nupo camp and very close to our hearts. Each time I visit camp all the children and staff receive much-needed new clothes. In addition, we make provision for a Christmas Party and each child receives a Christmas gift; this is usually food.
Sixty young people who are currently without their parents live in our two safe boarding houses. We provide food, clothing, soap, soap powder, hygiene product, candles and supervised care whilst they train to be teachers. Some of these youngsters are now working at our other projects in Nupo camp. Providing work for these youngsters in camp generates feelings for hope for the future; develops social cohesion and builds a strong foundation in which to develop a flourishing community spirit.
