Title: Soy Blessings -- According to Dr. Mary Shawa of the Malawi Ministry of Heath, malnutrition used to claim the life of one Malawian every four seconds. DuPont food scientists and Rab Processors work together to produce nutritious Sibusiso to help provide a solution to malnutrition and hunger in Malawi, Africa. Sibusiso, Zulu for "blessing", is made of locally grown nuts and a Solae™ soy protein. The food supplement does not require cooking or refrigeration. Featuring Dr. Imtiaz Sooliman from the Gift of the Givers Foundation, RAB Processors Chairman A. Gaffar Jakhura and Solae™ Scientist Adriana Camargo.

SOY BLESSINGS

FARMER
My family relies on me to work.
But if I am ill and can't work, my family doesn't eat.

DR. MARY SHAWA
MINISTRY OF HEALTH, MALAWI
Malawi is challenged with a number of problems, including the problem of malnutrition.

DR. MARY SHAWA
Every four seconds, a Malawian was dying of malnutrition.

DR. IMTIAZ SOOLIMAN
GIFT OF GIVERS FOUNDATION
Africa has to find solutions for its own problems from what's locally produced. We needed something that doesn't require cooking or refrigeration.
A supplement of high quality, high energy would be beneficial, so we incorporated all these ingredients into one product—Sibusiso.

A. GAFFAR JAKHURA
CHAIRMAN, RAB PROCESSORS
The manufacturing of Sibusiso is made up of two main ingredients: groundnuts and soy protein coming from DuPont. Sibusiso is a Zulu word which means "Blessing."

ADRIANA CAMARGO
SOLAE SCIENTIST, DUPONT
To work in a project that, in fact, is bringing nutrition to the people is something, I think, is a dream of every food scientist.
So for me, it's just been great to see that people is really gaining weight or feeling better, improve their nutrition.

DR. IMTIAZ SOOLIMAN
So using the soy that comes from a top-class company like DuPont, using the groundnuts from Malawi, combining together we can benefit not only Africa, but South America, Asia and the whole world.

FARMER
When I eat Sibusiso I have the energy to work.
Now my family has energy and is very happy.
