This video follows three Quebec women and presents the type of work they are doing in Mali and Benin. One is a nurse, one is a nutritionist and another is an educationalist. Maryse Henri, France Boily and Marie Leclerc Ouadreago are all members of WUSC (World University Service of Canada) and they mainly concern themselves with promoting better sanitation leading to illness prevention, offering information sessions for young mothers about food and nutrition, introducing mothers to new ways to prepare more nutritious meals for their children, how to sustain a family/commercial garden and how to preserve food in preparation for seasons of food shortage.
