The Plight of the Plumpy Nut
However, the excess baggage/weight charges on Virgin cost more than twice the price of the actual 5 boxes of Plumpy Nut. In addition, I also had to look forward to more weight/baggage charges from Kenyan Airways for my connection to Kigali. This peanut butter was stressing me out!
Coincidentally, Jenny's friend, Mike, in Nairobi previously researched the effectiveness of Plumpy Nut last summer and helped Jenny track down a group that could effectively use it. It turns out it has to be used very specifically – almost prescribed in order to have maximum benefit, so Jenny and Mike wanted to be sure to give it to a group that knew how to use it.
Jenny ended up donating the boxes of Plumpy Nut to Concern Worldwide in Kenya and the satchels were distributed through their village feeding program partners. Thank you Jenny!!
