Treat and Prevent Malnutrition in Haiti

Feb 3, 2011

One Child at a Time

A year after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, we look back on the year of recovery and rebuilding. There are still many challenges left to overcome and the problems are not all solved. 

But, Edesia is proud to have played its part in the response.

Through the shipments of Supplementary'Plumpy, young children at very high risk of malnutrition were prevented from falling into severe malnutrition. In times of emergency, ready-to-use foods allow us to intervene quickly and have an immediate impact, providing children with the nutrition they require until they are able to get nutritional autonomy. 

To stay up to date on these critical issues as they unfold you can find us at or join us on Facebook at

You have played a valuable role in helping us to reach one child at a time. You have had an impact. Thank you!
