Thank you

I am writing today to share the news that, thanks to you, our project has been fully funded. Your generosity helped us reach more children in danger of losing their lives to severe acute malnutrition in the Horn of Africa.

We wish we could say the malnutrition crisis was over for all the world's children, but the harsh reality is that over 55 million children need us to keep going, keep extending our reach farther, because they are severely malnourished.

Here at Edesia, we have been especially concerned about the humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic, which is why we have launched a new project to help severely malnourished children get the Plumpy'Nut they need to survive and thrive. Please consider clicking on the "Give Now" button below to initiate a one-time or reoccuring donation to this project.

Thank you again for your part in helping us save the lives of more children around the world through the incredible power of Plumpy'Nut.
