Medika Mamba (meaning “medical peanut butter” in Haitian Creole) is an energy dense peanut butter, significanly fortified with protein and nutritional supplements developed by St. Louis-based meds and Foods for Kids www.medsandfoodsforkids.org.
The Medika Mamba formula delivers almost immediate results. Peanut butter is a culturally acceptable food source in Haiti so is easily adopted by the children. The peanuts from which the product is made are locally grown and provide much-needed jobs. The cost to deliver is low and the reuslts are amazing.
As our initial partner, Licia Betor of Real Hope for Haiti Rescue Center say, “I am VERY VERY happy with the results… It is difficult to find a product that is good for the kids and that they acutally like…” Melanie, age 4 (photo), was admitted to the program on May 11, 2009 weiging 20 pounds. After only a few weeks she is improving significantly.
The cost of the 60-day treatment plan for each child is only $100 which includes the product, transportation and precessing fees. World Wide Village will increase the program to include other partner ministries as funds permit. Please consider supporting this life-saving program by donating online today.
