Mamba Miracles: Meet Judeson

MFK's Medika Mamba therapeutic food has treated more than 600,000 infants and children. Haitian clinics treat sick, starving children with little chance of survival. We don't give up on these children! We treat them with Medika Mamba and they grow stronger and healthier.

Meet 1-year old Judeson, who weighed just over half of the average 1 year-old at only 13.4lbs. He had been sick for a few months with fever and kwashiorkor, a condition caused by severe malnutrition and protein deficiency. Judeson was also struggling with hair loss and a rash as a result of his poor health.

Judeson's mother traveled 6 hours by foot, motorcycle, and taxi to reach the clinic. She stayed with him at the clinic as he received Medika Mamba. Over 9 weeks, Judeson grew healthier, his skin cleared and he gained weight to reach 16.3lbs!

Everyday, MFK's donors and supporters save children like Judeson. We are grateful to everyone who comes together to rescue the next generation from hunger. Because of you, we are saving lives and transforming futures in Haiti and across the globe.

Local Agriculture as a Solution to Hunger
Local Agriculture as a Solution to Hunger

Harvest season is just around the corner in Haiti, and farmers around the country will share crops to feed their families and communities.

This season has presented plenty challenges for Haitian farmers.  Drought, flooding, extreme heat, and even caterpillar infestations have threatened crops.

Luckily, MFK's Agriculture team spends the entire growing season transferring new skills to dozens of farmers through weekly training sessions.  Skills and knowledge about soil conservation, crop rotation, aflatoxin control, and more lead to greater success for these farmers each growing season.

We know that local agriculture is a key part of the sustainable solution to eliminating hunger. Recent reports from FAO state that investing in local agricultural inputs in developing countries strengthen food systems, which in turn prevents and addresses malnutrition. By supporting farmers in-country, those farmers benefit financially with increased crop production to sell in markets, and families benefit with increased access to nutritious food.

With this in mind, MFK's agriculture activities continue year-round. Although Haiti's growing season is coming to a close, exciting things are in store:


This September, the 87 participants of this season's farmer trainings will graduate and become certified partners of MFK's farmers' network, including 10 Champion farmers who have received personalized mentorship.  These farmers will go on to produce high-quality peanuts to sell in markets, feed families, and progress towards a healthier Haiti.  To date, more than 2,700 Haitian farmers have participated in MFK's trainings and MFK has purchased more than 500,000 kg of Haitian peanuts.

Agriculture Committee

The Meds & Food for Kids Board of Directors recently approved plans to establish an Agriculture Committee to support the organization's related initiatives.  Recognizing agriculture as a vital pillar of MFK's holistic model of sustainable development, the committee will support MFK's agriculture team by providing strategic guidance, identifying meaningful projects and opportunities, and by helping to build partnerships to contribute to food security.

With 4.9 million Haitians unsure of where their next meal will come from, MFK is committed to strengthening the country's agricultural capacity to feed those who are in most need.  To amend the popular phrase, "Teach a farmer to grow peanuts, and their community will eat for a lifetime."

STL Post Dispatch: Haiti's Largest Solar Project

Read the St. Louis Post-Dispatch article about MFK's solar project: How St. Louisans help build Haiti's largest solar project

"[MFK]'s latest effort may turn out to be transformative in helping starving people around the world."

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently interviewed Meds & Food for Kids founder Dr. Patricia Wolff and Board Chair Jeff Klopfenstein about the successful installation of solar power at MFK's Haitian factory.

We are grateful to share our story of success, and now we must look to the future: "Haiti is more needy now, but it's also not hopeless."
