There’s a hunger crisis happening in the world. While this isn’t new, it seems like hunger issues are getting more severe while technology and communication of the problem increases.
While I’ve never worked with them, I love seeing groups like the people who work with this miracle food, Plumpynut.
Check this out…http://www.theywilldie.org/. It’s a combination of locally grown peanut butter mixed with powdered milk and a vitamin pack. Their website says a 3-week supply can literally save the life of a child. Thinking not only with the head, but with the heart is such a good thing.
We at Convoy of Hope have communictated with the PlumpyNut people, and who knows what partnerships could be ahead.
There are solutions still to be found, and I hope some of our interns find some of those solutions.
Here’s a good place to mention the moringa tree. Many of our interns, and Convoy of Hope family members have worked with this miracle tree. This site describes them well, http://tinyurl.com/3gcjs3. Maybe I’ll talk more about them another time.
