Plumpy'nut's impact in the DR Congo

Plumpy'nut shipment headed to DR Congo

Today I walked through the Rhode Island warehouse from which the trucks pick up our shipments of Plumpy'nut. Here are some photos of the shipment going to the DR Congo through our NGO partner on the ground - our third delivery to them since 2010. Not just any shipment, but one that is on its way to give thousands more children - the innocent bystanders of conflict and poverty - a second chance at life.

Your donations to Edesia make it possible for us to send more Plumpy'nut and reach more children. We want to thank you again for helping us to nourish the children of the DR Congo.
