Vitamin Angels work is really simple; we are ‘reaching the unreachable’, getting essential nutrients to children under 5 who are chronically malnourished, and saving lives. 1/3 of all child and maternal deaths are due to chronic malnutrition.
Our cost for reaching these children is 25 cents per child per year.
With 2 high dose vitamin A capsules, we can increase these children’s chances of survival by 23%, lower illnesses by 70% and stop them from going blind.
As the Copenhagen Consensus stated, vitamins are ‘the best investment for the biggest challenges facing the world’. 95% of our donations go to helping these children and we’ve been given a 4 star rating by Charity Navigator.
Vitamin Angels offers a simple and effective solution to a major global health problem.
