Edesia, Inc.

Edesia's mission is to treat and prevent malnutrition for the world's most vulnerable populations. Our vision is a world in which all people have access to the basic human right of food and nutrition. We are committed to assuring that vulnerable individuals no longer suffer and die needlessly from malnutrition - a completely preventable condition. We treat all children as our own, and produce for them the lifesaving tools they need to overcome malnutrition and thrive. We act now, because the cost of inaction is too great.
Lifesaving Plumpy'Nut for Children in the Sahel
 
In the Sahel region of Africa, UNICEF estimates that thousands of children under the age of five are in danger of losing their lives to severe acute malnutrition. The situation for children in Mali is especially concerning due to conflict. According to UNICEF, "while rains [in the Sahel] are producing better crops, it can take two years for families to recover from the loss of animals and income." Help Edesia send more Plumpy'Nut to the region, so that more children's lives can be saved! project reportread updates from the field

Supplies of Plumpy'Nut, a fortified peanut-paste, are desperately needed. project reportread updates from the field
Provide Lifesaving Plumpy'Nut in Horn of Africa
 
In 2011, the Horn of Africa region experienced one of the worst droughts in 60 years. Rising food prices, due to lack of supply, means that thousands of already vulnerable children are more likely to experience severe acute malnutrition. Plumpy'Nut, a vitamin enriched peanut-paste, plays a critical role in hospitals and clinics throughout the region. In over 90% of cases, it can bring a child on the brink of death back to life. project reportread updates from the field
