Moringa Oleifera Tree Program

The Presbyterian Hunger Program is involved in a broad campaign to promote the planting and use of Moringa Oleifera trees in various countries whose population suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Clinical trials have demonstrated great potential for Moringa Oleifera ground leaves and pods as a food supplement against malnutrition and as an affordable answer to protein and vitamin deficiencies in small children and nursing mothers. Numerous projects including tree planting, publication of educational material, culinary preparations and nutrition training seminars have been implemented in Senegal, Gambia, the D. R. of Congo and Haiti, among others. Support for this fund will enable PHP to respond to an ever growing demand for moringa based nutritional assistance.
