University of Western Ontario professor Marianne Larsen has given $1 million to the university's Western Heads East program, which will provide disease-fighting probiotic yogurt to as many as 1,100 people in East Africa over the next decade. The London Free Press reports that the product "helps alleviate infections related to HIV/AIDS, and provides nourishment to many adults and children." The donation was a surprise to the program. "This was not expected, no way," Western Heads East Director Bob Gough told the LFP. "It's just wonderful."
