Nutrition Program Update

In August 2014, Project HOPE partnered with Fodisong Community Health Centre and the Rotary Club of Sandton to bring food supplements for patients in need in both Zandspruit and Itsoseng.  Our nurses refer patients into the program, and we monitor clinical outcomes, medication adherence, and overall wellbeing (using the WHO-5 Questionnaire) for all participants. Since August, we've continued to distribute food supplements, such as e-pap, e-spread, soya mince & maize meal, to 45 patients on a bi-weekly basis.  Alongside the supplements, patients receive nutrition education.

Connecting Hearts

In October 2014, Project HOPE South Africa partnered with Eli Lilly and Company to bring a wonderful group of 10 volunteers to Zandspruit through the Connecting Hearts Abroad program. The volunteers brought both passion and expertise to projects in support of the work of the Lilly NCD partnership with Project HOPE in Zandspruit.  This was Project HOPE South Africa’s second year of involvement in the Connecting Hearts Abroad program and was the best yet!

Volunteer projects focused on nutrition and exercise for NCD patients, health promotion events in the community, training for community health workers, and initiating improvements to M&E systems for the NCD project.

Through the program this year, the Lilly volunteers successfully made a lasting impact on the NCD partnership in Zandspruit. We sincerely appreciate both the opportunity to participate as a Connecting Hearts Abroad program partner and the individual efforts of each of the outstanding volunteers.
