Today's family photo(s) - Powdered foods and flippant moods
Alan, Sipho, and Dave.
Corn soy blend (CSB) is aptly named. It is powdered soy and powdered corn, and it can keep a malnourished child alive. Thanks to a donation by the World Food Program (WFP), we began distributing the food yesterday at the Baylor clinic. We moved a few hundred kilograms of the stuff...in one day.
The photo above depicts Alan preparing some CSB packets for next week. After an hour or so of this, he was covered with a thin film of nutritious dust. More about CSB and the World Food Program soon.

After returning from prepackaging CSB, both Alan and Sarah began helping me write up a couple of articles. Sarah found herself a bit giddy after editing a recent draft of an article discussing a staff adherence exercise conducted here at the clinic. More to come on this as well.
They are both working hard. I am trying to get them to write a guest blog entry, but they are already averaging 11 hour days.
At least they are getting some exercise.
CSB bags...and more CSB bags.
