Well this is the time of year that Gleaners mixes their soup mix. Their process is, dehydrating all the vegetables during the summer months as they come in and then every January they calculate how much of everything they have dried, then they mix it all together, creating 1 KG bags, then they put 80 bags into each 45 gallon drum.
Now the amazing part:)
A 53ft long transport truck will be coming to our warehouse this Tuesday to unload 150 barrels of Soup mix (12,000 1 Kg bags). In Swaziland they have been able to feed over 200 orphans from 1 bag, that’s more than Two Million Four Hundred Thousand meals for these kids:) I have said this before, these kids usually only get some corn meal mush and it does not have all the nutrients these kids need to stay healthy but the soup mix from Gleaners gives them the vitamins and minerals they need to keep from getting boils and other skin infections.
To date we have supplied soup mix and clothes to over 60,000 of the 100,000 orphans in Swaziland alone, not counting Lesotho and other countries. Again I want to say thanks to everyone who has been a part of making this all happen.
