Million Markos, Samaritan’s Purse

I am Million Markos, the nutrition program manager of Samaritan’s Purse – South Sudan.

The main objective of our program is to improve the health and nutritional status of the community through effective behavioral change communication.

We also train the mothers so that they will be able to closely monitor and to follow the nutritional status of their children at home.

We educate the schoolchildren on prevention and the control of major community health problems.

You may pray for us as we are dealing with the current complicated situation because of COVID-19.

You can also pray for Samaritan’s Purse as we continue responding to disasters and help in Jesus’ Name.
