Saving Nico

"After eating the Plumpy'Nut, he was walking and talking and his appetite increased," says a young mother in the DR Congo. As you will see in this compelling video from Action Against Hunger (click on the link below), her son, Nico, was not doing well when he first arrived at the health clinic. And yet, because of the comprehensive services offered through the health clinic and the availability of Plumpy'Nut, her son was able to fully recover - walking and talking again like a little boy should. 

Starting in May of this year and into June, Edesia has been fulfilling an order for 20,202 boxes of Plumpy'Nut for another partner on the ground in the DR Congo (UNICEF), to help children just like Nico make full recoveries back to good health. This means that potentially 20,202 children can be fully treated over a course of 7 weeks (on average), eating three sachets per day.

I am always encouraged to see videos showing the dramatic impact Plumpy'Nut is having in the lives of children all around the world, and I know you will be too. 

Thank you, as always, for your partnership with Edesia.
