Nourishment & Hope

The latest updates coming out of the DR Congo are troubling. The United Nations Office for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported recently that over one million people have been displaced this year. Criminality is on the rise. Tensions persist. Stability is nowhere in sight. Meanwhile, in the midst of these difficult circumstances, the bright, bubbly children of this central African country are in desperate need of nourishment, and hope.

This year, from our Providence, Rhode Island factory, Edesia has shipped over nourishment and hope in the form of 23,000 boxes of Plumpy'Nut to humanitarian organizations in the DR Congo - which is enough to potentially treat 23,000 children over a course of seven weeks. 

The humanitarian aid and community health workers in the DR Congo who are on the ground delivering this lifesaving treatment in hospitals and clinics are our heroes, just as much as you are our hero, for your continued support that helps make our work possible.

From all of us at Edesia, thank you for your amazing (and life-changing) partnership with us. It is making a world of difference.
