You could help save a life by providing nutrition powerful enough to bring a child back from the brink of death.
Child malnutrition rates today remain devastating and are made exponentially worse by rapidly rising food prices around the world. But while malnutrition continues to kill millions of children a year and stunt growth in untold numbers, there is hope in the form of a recently created "super food" that provides the specific, high-quality nutrition children need to recover, survive, and even thrive.
GreaterGood.org partners with Partners in Health to provide children to food they need to fight malnutrition. Children are provided with Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTFs), a vitamin and mineral-rich paste that requires no preparation and no special supervision, making it easy to use. RUTFs are difficult to overeat, and they keep even after opening; when unopened, they keep for months or even years. RUTFs offer a 90% - 95% recovery rate for severely malnourished children and allow them to recover at home.
RUTFs help with rapid weight gain with high-calorie, fortified peanut butter-like paste contains a balance of lipids, sugar, and protein (macronutrients), vitamins, minerals (micronutrients) and calories. RUTFs can mean the difference between life and death for a young child, and despite the proven effectiveness, they are currently only available to very few malnourished children.
You can help. Just $20 helps feed 1 child for 1 month. You can help feed severely malnourished child, and give them a brighter future.
