OUTPATIENT FEEDING PROGRAM
(at Kibuye Hope Hospital) Parents of over 300 children who have been identified as significantly malnourished come from miles around the local area twice a week to receive specifically developed food to supplement their child's diet. Busoma is a nutritious cereal developed by Dr. Frank Ogden. (The primary ingredients are soya, sorghum and maize.) In addition, the parents are taught about the importance of fruits, vegetables, and a balanced diet. The majority of families report that their children have more energy and look healthier after beginning the program. Clinic statistics show increases in the children's weight and other health indicators. "Please continue to teach us how to feed our children effectively," said a mother of a Busoma clinic attendee. With your help, we will do just that.
