Horn of Africa update on ABC News tonight at 10pm ET

Plumpy'nut brings life and hope to children

Dear Friends,

Tonight at 10 PM ET, you may be interested to tune in as ABC wraps up their 2011 coverage of the world's most pressing health issues in “Making Life: A Risky Proposition,” a 20/20 Special with Diane Sawyer.

The ABC producers alerted us today that the special will include a follow-up segment on Edesia's project in the Horn of Africa that provided relief for famine victims - to which you have contributed so generously. 

From all of us at the Edesia factory in Providence, Rhode Island, we extend our gratitude and appreciation to you. Your compassion and caring for the starving children in the Horn of Africa inspires us every day.

Thank you.

Sending Plumpy'nut to the Horn of Africa

Edesia
Edesia's factory

Walking through our factory in Providence, Rhode Island this morning, I stopped to take a photo of where the Plumpy'nut continues to come off the line and get packed into the red and white boxes. The sound the machines make - like a steady drum beat - feels hopeful to me - especially considering the tremendous ongoing crisis in the Horn of Africa. It may be an automated machine, but its purpose is driven by human action. 

Last week our project to Provide Lifesaving Plumpy'nut in the Horn of Africa achieved its goal of $200,000 and is tipping over that amount a little more each day. This is truly incredible. We will now be able to reach thousands more children around the world with the Plumpy'nut we make.

Thank you. Together we are giving more and more children the gift of life in the Horn of Africa. And we could not be more grateful for your efforts to help make this happen.

Plumpy'nut's impact in the DR Congo

Plumpy'nut shipment headed to DR Congo

Today I walked through the Rhode Island warehouse from which the trucks pick up our shipments of Plumpy'nut. Here are some photos of the shipment going to the DR Congo through our NGO partner on the ground - our third delivery to them since 2010. Not just any shipment, but one that is on its way to give thousands more children - the innocent bystanders of conflict and poverty - a second chance at life.

Your donations to Edesia make it possible for us to send more Plumpy'nut and reach more children. We want to thank you again for helping us to nourish the children of the DR Congo.
