Approximately 30 percent of the world’s population lacks access to basic health services, including nutritional resources. Enter Vitamin Angels, an organization that seeks to improve the lives of pregnant women, infants and children by working with like-minded partners to eliminate malnutrition.
What They Do
Vitamin Angels works with local partners around the world to distribute vitamins and minerals and fill the gap in existing health and nutrition services.
By using these existing infrastructures, Vitamin Angels is able to help the partners meet immediate and sometimes life-saving needs while setting up a foundation to have a long-term impact in communities.
Vitamin Angels feels it can make the greatest contribution by:
- Providing prenatal vitamins to expecting mothers to improve not only the health of the mother but also support healthy fetal development.
- Providing Vitamin A, an essential nutrient not produced by the body that is necessary for a healthy immune system, normal vision and proper functioning of the heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs.
- Deworming and supplementary feeding to further improve health and nutrition.
How They Do It
In addition to working with local nonprofit and government field partners around the world, corporate partners like these vitamin brands are essentials to the success of Vitamin Angels:
- Goli Nutrition
- SmartyPants Vitamins
- Rainbow Light
- Persona Nutrition
- Eu Natural
- Garden of Life
