Nelson Mandela Day Continued

In celebration of Nelson Mandela Day earlier this week, volunteers from Mondelez International worked with INMED South Africa to spruce up a school for children with disabilities in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The team painted colorful murals on blank walls and made repairs to a shade shelter. Next week, they will return to the school to plant a vegetable garden with a drip irrigation system. For more information about INMED’s programs in South Africa, visit https://inmed.org/where-we-work/south-africa/.

INMED Brasil Teaches Zika Prevention

While eradicating Zika is serious business in Latin America, our team at INMED Brasil used a fun and engaging board game last week to teach Zika prevention to students at the Antônio Pereira de Albuquerque municipal school in Chã de Alegria in the Pernambuco state of Brazil. Given the level of attention the competitive students gave the game, the Aedes aegypti mosquito doesn’t stand a chance. This training was delivered as part of INMED’s Healthy Children, Healthy Futures program in partnership with Johnson & Johnson.

INMED Andes promotes aquaponics in the Ucayali region of Peru

Our team at INMED Andes is expanding its efforts to promote aquaponics in the Ucayali region of Peru. Last week, INMED facilitated a class on the basics of aquaponics (a symbiotic combination of soilless crop production and fish farming) and its many benefits for students at Ivonis Mazzarolo School. In addition to learning the technical aspects of installation and maintenance, they also learned that aquaponics can be a profitable enterprise, can improve food security and is an effective community development tool. Learn more about aquaponics in Peru at https://inmed.org/aquaponics.
