We, here at MFK, keep in regular contact with our partners who utilize our Medika Mamba alongside of us in the field. Here are a few recent successes worth celebrating!
This is Oris, who was treated for malnutrition through the Medika Mamba program at the Real Hope for Haiti Clinic. She started the program at a mere 12 pounds. She now weighs a much healthier 20 pounds!
This is Jn Edward. He started the Medika Mamba program at 33 pounds in February 2012, extremely swollen with kwashiorkor (malnutrition caused by protein deficiency) and suffering from worms. He is now a healthy 59 pounds, and is much stronger than when he first started the program.
This is Guerline. She is 11 years old and started the program weighing 26 pounds. She gained 5 pounds in just the first week of the Medika Mamba program, and now weighs 39 pounds!
These are just a few of the children that have been helped by Medika Mamba. With our new factory, we will be able to increase our production tenfold, and treat 80,000 malnourished children every year!
It has been almost ten months since we broke ground at the factory construction site, and we have installed more equipment to differentiate all of the rooms. It has been very exciting to start filling up all the empty rooms as we get closer to completion of the factory!

Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us with our factory and enabling us to sustain our Medika Mamba program that saves thousands of children every year, including Oris, Jn Edward, and Guerline. We could not do it without you!
