We have a had a great year training mothers in our “Well-Baby” program. Cathee Mapes has been heading up our program since 2012 and is doing an amazing job! Cathee knows just about everything there is to know about Primary Health Care, Nutrition, Backyard Gardening, Medical Emergencies, TB … ok a lot of things! We have been blessed to have her work alongside us in bringing this very important training to the mothers in and around Tabuk.
Since starting this program at the beginning of 2012 we have graduated over 100 women in the “Well-Baby” Program. That means that we have trained over 100 mothers how to …
Make their own backyard gardens that can give them FAITH (Food Always In The Home)
Recognize and Treat Medical Emergencies
Provide adequate nutrition for their children
Recognize signs and symptoms of Tuberculosis and get treatment
Recognize signs and symptoms of Dengue and Malaria and get treatment
Discipline and care for their children in a Godly way
In 2014 we hope to reach out even further with our Well-Baby program and train mothers in the mountains of Upper Tinglayan. This will mean hiking into remote villages as well as encountering a lot of traditional beliefs that may go against what we are teaching. It is going to be an exciting year ahead!
