Later that morning there were demonstrations of a water catchment tank, solar still, and a reverse osmosis machine – as well as face painting, musical chairs, and a raffle. Organizations involved included the Marshall Islands Red Cross, IOM, USAID, and the RMI Government’s Office of Environmental Planning and Policy Coordination (OEPPC).

    Fern Lehman, Biology teacher at the College of the Marshall Islands (CMI) is working on one more angle in understanding health and nutrition in the Marshall Islands. She and her class are mapping and quantifying the availability of fresh food in local stores. The study so far confirms that not many stores in Majuro sell fruit, for example. The lack of easy availability of fruit translates to a lack of fruit and vegetables in the diet, adding to the problem of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other non-communicable diseases that plague the Marshall Islands.
