BMI Measurements by Trinity/HOPE

Published on

In the US, many of us struggle with decreasing our BMI, or body mass index. The opposite is true for the children in Trinity/HOPE's feeding programs in Haiti.

They desperately need to increase their BMI and our feeding programs are helping them do just that. There is quite a bit of compelling data in the presentation. The two key takeaways are: 1) Trinity/HOPE's feeding programs are saving lives and 2) the younger children benefit the most - so it is important to keep feeding kids and expand our programs to as many Haitian children as possible.

  18. 20. James 2: 14-16 <ul><li>What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. </li></ul>
