Vitamin Angels improves nutritional services for underprivileged communities. They support 60+ million women and children every year. This is their approach.
The need for supplements increases during pregnancy. When a mother does not have sufficient access to healthy food, the risks to her and her baby increase. Pregnancy vitamins help support healthy pregnancies, prevent anaemia, promote fetal growth and ensure babies are born with a healthy birth weight. They are crucial to the health and survival of the growing baby and to the health and well-being of the mother.
Children in developing countries, where food is not fortified, often have vitamin A deficiencies. With a proven administration of vitamin A, disease, blindness and death can be prevented. Worms can prevent the child’s body from absorbing vitamin A. That is why Vitamin Angels provides children with worming tablets to improve health and the absorption of essential nutrients.
In combination with providing vitamins, Vitamin Angels also provides nutritional education tools and materials that their program partners can use to ensure long-term good health. The families they help face extreme challenges and limited resources, but a lack of education should never be a barrier to good health. In cooperation with their program partners, they encourage and support additional education about the basics of nutrition and its importance.
WORKING TOGETHER ON A MISSION
At Yummygums we believe that good health should be accessible to everyone. That is why we are proud of our partnership with Vitamin Angels. In this way, we help them in their mission to offer support for a healthier life to pregnant women and children, who are at risk of a nutrient deficiency.
For every jar sold, Yummygums makes a donation to Vitamin Angels, helping one underprivileged child or pregnant woman to get essential vitamins and minerals. Together we give them the opportunity to lead a healthy and happy life.
