Lifesaving Milk Powder
Another vital project is the Milk Powder Programme, which provides Lifesaving milk powder, (infant formula and whole milk powder) and Lishe powder (nutritious porridge powder) to HIV positive mothers with infants and to vulnerable children and their carers.
Feeding n infant with formula milk, instead of breast feeding, helps to prevent infection from the mother, another step on the road to recovery for the whole community.
A malnourished baby receives milk from the milk powder program which was created by the NGO to prevent transmission of HIV from mother to child. To address these problems, Mufindi Orphans, along with other Foxes’ NGO partners, provides milk powder to participating mothers and caregivers.
