Provide Plumpy'nut for children in the DR Congo

Dec 17, 2010

Holiday Update

This year 19 million children worldwide will be affected with Severe Acute Malnutrition.
That is the equivalent of the entire US population of children under five!

With staggering statistics like these it can seem like an overwhelming problem to tackle. But thanks to you and your donations Edesia's life-saving Plumpy'nut® will be distributed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and we will continue to save lives.

Thank you!
