Teso at heart (TAH-Africa) popularly known for  “Ateker Cup and Ateker Carnival” in partnership with lancet laboratories on Tuesday 18th, July launched a health campaign called “fighting malnutrition”, aimed at rescuing lactating mothers whose conditions are dire in the society across Teso sub-region.


TAH working with lancet Laboratories and Cerba Lancet Africa brought up a project that will see through about three categories of lactating mothers who include those with no source of income, mothers with special needs children, and mothers with large families whose feeding conditions are in dire need of uplift.


According to the CEO TAH-Africa Isaac Olupot, TAH and Cerba Lancet Africa chose Kopege community as the pioneering area of the first phase of the project considering their location is one of the areas faced with a lot of challenges as they are located close to the water bodies making it hard for them to get assistance from those meant to offer the help.


To ensure that the project becomes a success, the lactating mothers were given equipment worth 7.2million shillings inform of sowing machines, materials for starting the initiative as well as starting support to the trainers of the women groups in the named categories.


Immaculate Apio the project lead lancet Laboratories (Cerba Lancet Africa) urged the beneficiaries to take advantage of the opportunity so that they get a lifetime skill that will help them survive better even after the donor support comes to an end as it will help them support their households.


She further tasked the trainers to commit to lifting up the lives of struggling families as a calling that will offer an alternative to ending hunger, malnutrition, and dependency in their locality.


“I had lost hope as life was getting hard looking at the way the economy has changed, TAH Africa and Cerba have come to my rescue at a time when I least expected ’’ said Aboot Christine one of the lactating mothers battling with a physically hand capped baby.


A total of 6 women were directly enrolled under medical support and food funded by the organization, while over 200 families are expected to benefit from the skilling project aimed at fighting malnutrition and poverty as its major cause.


Silas Angesu one of the local leaders, hailed the initiative calling it the first blessing their community ever received, and called on the locals to guard the equipment and the project jealously for many girls, young mothers, and women to benefit from.
