Yesterday was World Humanitarian Day. It is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. Since the summer of 2011, we have been sending thousands of boxes of Plumpy'Nut to the Horn of Africa region. Even though we don't know all of their names, we are so grateful to all of the humanitarian workers on the ground in this region that make the miracle of treatment with Plumpy'Nut possible.
Two years after the height of the famine crisis, the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that, in the Horn of Africa, there have been some improvements in overall food security, livelihoods and the nutrition situation, but thousands of children remain in urgent need of life-saving interventions such as Plumpy'Nut - which is why we continue our work here at the factory in Providence, Rhode Island.
Thank you for your commitment to humanitarian causes. You are helping transform the lives of those who are starting out with so little.
