www.vitaminangels.org – Vitamin Angels is dedicated to reducing child mortality worldwide by advancing availability, access and use of essential nutrients to newborns, infants and children under five. They focus on two main programs that ensure maximum impact: (1) Vitamin A -- An estimated 190 million children suffer from vitamin A deficiency (VAD) worldwide, a major underlying cause of child mortality and blindness around the world. However, with a simple, cost-effective vitamin A capsule each six months we can prevent VAD blindness and reduce under-five child mortality by 23%. (2) Multivitamins -- Essential multiple micronutrients, or multivitamins, reduce the effects of undernutrition and malnutrition in children under five. Their program offers infants and children the nutrients they need to grow up healthy, increasing their potential for educational and economic achievements in life. We are grateful for their generosity and assistance in providing our children essential nutrients to assist in their growth and development.
