Eight months in the bush: volunteering with Project Peanut Butter
Graduate Sierra Leone will be giving a presentation about her valuable experiences in West Africa on Wednesday 4 October.
Having recently returned from volunteering in Sierra Leone as part of Project Peanut Butter (PPB), former Dietetics and Nutrition BSc student Rosa Wheatley will be delivering a talk on 4 October at London Metropolitan University’s Holloway campus about her time in West Africa.
PPB are a non-profit organisation who seek to treat severe malnutrition among children, the single largest cause of child death in the world today. Using effective, locally produced ready-to-use foods, PPB offer both nutritional and medical support in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
Officially founded in 2004 by Mark Manary, Managing Director, PPB provide an energy dense therapeutic food for small children suffering from edema. Made up of peanut paste, powdered milk, vegetable oil, sugar and vitamins/minerals, the easily digestible food is a life-changing treatment which has seen recovery in thousands of malnourished children.
Join Rosa as she shares her valuable experiences in this illuminating talk. Tickets are free, but must be booked on Eventbrite.
