The Child Nutrition Program that was initiated by Dr. Stan Foster, and financed by Nacoochee Presbyterian Church, has made progress this year under the leadership of the Mam health promoters, Micaela Diaz and Jovita Morales. Members of the Nacoochee-sponsored trip in November 2022 helped conduct a health fair to identify malnourished children in a new area on top of a mountain in Western Guatemala. The health promoters have been monitoring the children’s weight and arm circumferences and training the mothers, providing them with “Incaparina”, (a nutritious formula), seeds for vegetable gardens, and classes on preparing healthy food. Dottie Foster’s cousin, Cindie Moore was able to carry funds in late June of this year to subsidize the project for the rest of this year, and she has been reimbursed from the ongoing Mam Guatemala designated fund of our church. The Association of Mam Christian Women for Development Board is considering new areas of expansion and sustainability for next year. Micaela sent us the following PowerPoint presentation of her work in 2022.
