Going Home

One of the goals of the RHFH rescue center is to keep families together.  We give the family a place for their malnourished child to recover and get well.  Once this goal is met the child returns home with the family.  It is a joy to see a happy mom with her child.

    I can’t help but worry that the parents won’t have enough money to feed them again… is that a valid thought?

    But, what a blessing, Licia, the amazing changes that your work has made. Amazing. And that last little girl? Over 7 lbs. gain?! On a body that little, that is incredible. Praise God.

    Is there a way (through the community group perhaps?) to teach improved farming techniques,livestock management, better nutrition, etc,that would allow families to meet their food needs so that kwash & malnutrition would be a thing of the past? I know many of us would support these efforts if we only knew how.
