Horn of Africa update on ABC News tonight at 10pm ET

Plumpy'nut brings life and hope to children

Dear Friends,

Tonight at 10 PM ET, you may be interested to tune in as ABC wraps up their 2011 coverage of the world's most pressing health issues in “Making Life: A Risky Proposition,” a 20/20 Special with Diane Sawyer.

The ABC producers alerted us today that the special will include a follow-up segment on Edesia's project in the Horn of Africa that provided relief for famine victims - to which you have contributed so generously. 

From all of us at the Edesia factory in Providence, Rhode Island, we extend our gratitude and appreciation to you. Your compassion and caring for the starving children in the Horn of Africa inspires us every day.

Thank you.

    lilong The 20/20 segment did not talk about Plumpy Nut being used for the project on the Horn of Africa. Did I miss something? I'm confused about the update.

    Heidi Hello - We received word on Friday from ABC that there would be an update on our Horn of Africa project. Although it turned out to be a general update on the "Be the Change, Save a Life" projects. I do apologize for the confusion!
