Eat for Equity Minneapolis for Rural Health Care Initiative: Saturday, September 22posted: Tuesday, September 11th, 2012
This month, come to Sierra Leone.
Your supper money will go to Rural Health Care Initiative(RHCI), which focuses on maternal-child health in Tikonko chiefdom, a community of 47,000 people spread over 17 villages. This community has one poorly equipped government health clinic, which can be a day’s walk from the other villages in the chiefdom. Women and children in Tikonko experience high rates of death due to treatable and preventable illnesses and complications during childbirth. Just over 1 in 10 of all the babies born in Tikondo won’t survive their first year of life.
You’ll feast on…
Groundnut Stew with Garlic Couscous
Greens with Tomatoes and Onions
Coconut Rice Pudding with Macaroon Topping
Housemade Ginger Ale
Homebrew from West Bank Brewing Club and Driftless Brewing
Hosted by Nina, Oliver, Sally, Alec, Ty, and Catherine
