Pray for Mercy Ships Food for Life Program.
“While the main focus of the Mercy Ships mission is to provide safe, surgical care, understanding proper nutrition, and how to maintain it, is absolutely key to maintaining a healthy community. The Mercy Ships Food for Life Program partners with local African agencies to help families and communities learn practical and natural food-producing skills in order to reduce malnutrition and increase food security.”
“Mercy Ships as a surgery ship is investing in farming because we recognize that in order to have good health, you need to have good nutrition — and for good nutrition to be effective, you need to have safe food,” Agricultural Program Manager Eliphaz Essah said. “To do that, we need to get the best knowledge of how to produce safe food, and that’s why [the Food for Life program] is here.”
