In Africa we have a healing tree called Moringa of which the Ancients knew. They called it “the Miracle Tree” and used it to treat more than 300 diseases. Sadly, once western medicine reached Africa, people lost the knowledge of moringa and its healing benefits. They considered it as a weed, while they suffered with malnutrition, disease and poverty. They preferred expensive medicines from the west over herbal plants that grew around them. These plants were held in suspicion because of their use by witchdoctors.
Thankfully things have changed for the better. Today Moringa has been re-discovered and found by scientists to be the most nutrient-rich plant on earth. It is considered as one of the world’s most useful trees. Almost every part of the Moringa tree has beneficial properties and is used for food, skin care, medicine, agriculture, and much more. In the west, it is one of the top superfoods and is used in weight-loss programs.
Making a Difference
Health workers are seeing extraordinary results by using fresh and dried leaves to treat malnutrition, HIV, and tropical diseases. It is also given to nursing mothers to increase their milk supply. Plus, moringa seeds are used to purify polluted water, making it safe to drink.
Lives are being saved and changed! People are starting to experience good health! It is easy to see why Moringa has been called the Miracle Tree.
African Moringa Hub is a NGO that is spreading Awareness of this Miracle tree. We see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame due to poverty, malnutrition and unemployment, etc. They need support and understanding! The surest way to pull people out of poverty/malnutrition is to provide education.
We spread awareness by:
- providing important advice (on nutrition, agriculture, production and marketing) in our social media groups, e.g., Whatsapp and Facebook -
- and last year, publishing our first moringa book, Africa Moringa Series 1. (This was sold as both an ebook and printed edition. The printed edition was sold all over Africa.)

Personal Note from the Coordinator:
My name is Bernadette Woods Director of Recipe's and edible's and Coordinator of funding for African Moringa hub. I live in Gauteng and Studied at Unisa: Psychology, Administration, Project management. I worked at Unisa for 20 years as a Academic administrator and Student Adviser.
I’m really passionate about the Miracle tree and how it change lives for the better. I was fortunate to be part from the beginning with African Moringa hub and to see what has been achieved through this short period of time is amazing.
The world can be an overwhelming place so I believe very strongly in giving back to the community, and although I wouldn’t be saving lives like a doctor or nurse, being able to help raising funds to educate the poor from poverty and spread awareness globally would still be very fulfilling to me.”
