Our Initiatives

Our food security project combines agricultural activities and two food bank that sustain the nutritional needs of our patients and clients. This project focuses on the first dimension of food security, which is – the physical availability of food and its related sustainability. We both purchase and grow food that helps improve food availability at the household level in select communities. The goal of this project is to increase (our) production and (our patients) consumption of indigenous micronutrient rich foods, including high-iron beans, groundnuts, finger millet, soya bean, and sweet potatoes. Additionally, our community nurses and trained community health workers provide community-based nutrition services in grouped households or community groups.
