New nutrition centre building – the grand opening!

| |

On Saturday we were delighted to be able to open the new building for our nutrition centre.   Lots of people came to celebrate with us, including some chiefs and sub-chiefs from Gushegu and nearby villages.  We enjoyed traditional music, dancing and speeches before the chief of Yishelanyili (the village next to the nutrition centre) cut the ribbon and we all looked around the building.  It was a great way to raise awareness about malnutrition and highlight the work of the centre, and we even distributed moringa seeds for everyone to take home and plant.  Indeed, the day after the opening we had a visit from the parents of a very malnourished baby.  The parents had heard about the centre because of the opening and came to seek help.  We hope that the child will recover well.
