As you can already well imagine, the situation in the DR Congo continues to be uncertain, especially for the many thousands who are struggling to achieve a sense of safety and maintain access to adequate supplies of nutritious food. We just wanted to update you that, from our Providence, Rhode Island factory, we recently shipped out 10,000 boxes of Plumpy'Nut to the DR Congo, which means that 10,000 children with severe acute malnutrition can literally be revived and brought back to good health in a matter of weeks. We appreciate our humanitarian partners on the ground that receive our shipments and facilate the extremely hard work of saving these young lives. And we certainly appreciate your continued support and for helping us reach as many children as possible in this too-often forgotten region of our world. Thank you for your compassion and for bringing so much hope to others.
