Judea hope has been active in southern Africa’s previously disadvantaged communities for the past 16 years through a variety of community upliftment and development programs. However 5 years ago we were confronted with the need of children of our country . This led to development of severe programs , focusing on early childhood development.
Through research and consultation with local nutritional experts. Judea Hope has formulated a dehydrated rice , vegetable and legume based meal that provides all the macro nutrient need s for a child and even an adult. To enhance the nutritional potency of the meal further a vitamin and mineral sachet was specifically formulated for the meal pack and is included in the pack and is included in the packaging. This is added after the meal has been cooked. Soon after we had rolled out the first batches of food with our vitamin sachet , some incredible anecdotal feedback started rolling in. There are too many testimonies to note in this document but feedback ranges from decreased illness amongst the children to improved general health of people living with HIV . Sadly due to the overwhelming need we are currently managing 3 meals per week at some of the 10000 daycare centers.
Judea Hope in partnership with My Foundation is planing to pack more than a million meals packing events , across South Africa . The meals are packed b volunteers from the corporate, churches and schools that donate R 30 000 00 for 70 boxes and 20 000 meals in three hours. The meals are easy to transport store and distribute to those in greatest need.
