Medika Mamba Graduates

We are so thankful for the healing that we see happening every day here at the Rescue Center.  One of the most vital weapons we are blessed with to combat severe malnutrition is an incredible product called Medika Mamba, a RUTF (Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food) made of ground roasted peanuts, powdered milk, cooking oil, sugar, vitamins and minerals.  Medika Mamba (Creole for “Peanut Butter Medicine) is produced here in Haiti by Meds & Food for Kids , providing jobs for many people in this job-sparse nation.

Meds & Food for Kids posted this story on their blog just a few days ago about RHFH and the use of Medika Mamba here at the Rescue Center.  We truly appreciate the partnership with them to help these children.  Big thanks to World Wide Village  for the funding of this program since 2008, and much love to the Livesays for raising funds for this precious peanut butter.

Join us in rejoicing over these victories!

(Note: Once the children with kwashiorkor have lost all their water retention, their body weight is less than their intake weight.  This weight loss of water is reflected on the “lowest weight” number.  Healthy weight gain can then begin.)

Medika Mamba.  Helping hands and praying hearts.  God’s mercy and grace.

That’s the beautiful combination that has provided these results!

A sincere thank you to each and every person who has been a part (big or small, in Haiti or abroad) of the healing of these children.

Above all else, we give thanks to the Lord!
