Aid to the Masai people

Written 01.09.2018 17:37 under Archive

Mirjam is working very intensely distributing aid to the Masai children. We asked her to share about the latest dis-tribution of baby food.

Mirjam shares:

In June we began our new project, “Baby Food”. The children in the Masai district are very undernourished so we were contacted by the local authorities with a request to help the most vulnerable children. We have therefore applied for support in a three month trial period. After this, we will evaluate the effect on the children.
 
The children are aged 0-2 years and we have 200 children in the program. All of them were weighed before the start. It was quite a project, but it was successful.
 

 
Before the food distribution the mothers were trained by a nutrition expert of how to make this special gruel and the children had a taste. The mothers were told that 1 kg of this was equivalent to 3 kg meat or 72 eggs. They were also told what proteins were in the mixture, which were building the health of the children. The mothers gave a really good response and asked many relevant questions. We were happy that they participated so actively.
 
The women stood patiently and waited as their names were called so as they could take home the food. Every child got 3 kg, which would last for three weeks. We are a team that supervise the project and distribute a new portion of food every third week. According to the latest evaluations, the project seems to be a success and it is my prayer that we receive enough funds to start up in other Masai districts. We will work one year in every place to make sure that the children get healthy. The doctors that we work with have asked us if we can help children up to 5 years as they are undernourished and a very vulnerable group.
 
Please pray that this will be a success and that God will help the little undernourished ones to get a better start in life. Thank you also for praying for funds as it is quite expensive to run this project. And last, but not least: THANK YOU for praying for the team and for me that God gives us energy and protects us as we set out on these long and demanding trips.
 

 
1 kg of this mixture is 10 DKK so for one child it is 520 DKK per year. If anyone wants to support food to these 200 children please pay your gift to our account, which is:

Nu har vi snart været hjemme i 2 mdr. og tripper for at komme i gang,

 med vores møderække rundt i landet.
Corona krisen har desværre gjort, at det ikke har været muligt at følge vores mødeaktiviteter rundt i kirker og foreninger.
 
Det er vi selvfølgelig meget kede af, derfor har vi valgt at bruge de muligheder der findes ved at bruge nettet.
Der er flere kirker, der har opfordret os til at lave et videoklip, for at fortælle om arbejdet i Tanzania.
Det gjorde vi og sendte det til de kirker, der er interesseret som så formidler det videre via nettet til deres medlemmer.
Vi har dermed også lyst til at sende den rundt til vores venner, som måske ikke har mulighed for at høre vores hilsen gennem kirkerne.
 
Videoklippet varer 25 min.  
 
Tabitha starter med at fortælle om vores tur hjem til Danmark.
 
Vi viser en kort filmklip om arbejdet, som fortæller om vores hverdag, både når vi er hjemme og de forskellige aktiviteter rundt i landet. Bl.a. er vi på sygebesøg hos en psykisk syg mor, som beder os hjælpe med at få sit barn ind på vores børnehjem.
 
Torkild slutter af med at fortælle om nogle af de behov, der er opstået på grund af Corona.
Vi er glade for de muligheder der findes på nettet til at holde kontakten til jer kære venner.
 
Her er link til videoen:
