In Uganda vitamins are changing the lives of mothers and children

The Mad Fitness SB September Charity of the Month is Vitamin Angels!

This organization strives to abolish childhood malnutrition by providing vitamins to at-risk populations throughout the world. Vitamins Angels provides services to over 60 million mothers and children. In 2018, the company expanded their prenatal program; this program aims to prevent newborn deaths related to vitamin deficiencies. Serving more than 74 countries, Vitamins Angels has a worldwide impact on childhood health.  Offering more than vitamins alone, they also provide deworming for children and nutritional counseling for mothers.

Reaching underserved populations

Most governments offer health and nutrition services intended to meet the needs of their citizens. But despite their best efforts, limited resources often constrain their ability to do so. Unfortunately, those who need services the most tend to go unreached. This is where Vitamin Angels comes in. They partner with local, nonprofit organizations who provide health and nutrition services to underserved women and children. Seeking to support only those initiatives that are complementary to and coordinated with existing national health services.
