Drought, disease and death in Madagascar

Climate change has brought years of drought to Madagascar, leading to crop failure and famine.

A special porridge called ePap, made from maize and soya beans with added vitamins and minerals, quickly brings health to malnourished children and adults. Visible improvement can be seen after a few weeks of daily ePap, and the full effect is achieved after two months.
Barnabas Fund plans, Lord willing, to provide 234 tonnes of ePap for a rolling programme over two years reaching over 79,000 Christians across the 22 regions of Madagascar.

R 45 buys 1kg ePap which will provide 20 days of nourishment for children aged 7 and over, or 40 days for younger children.
