Vitamin Angels  We're a non-profit distributing lifesaving vitamins to children and mothers in need. Help us stop malnutrition from the start!

Seven-month-old Jennifer’s big, chubby cheeks and her inquisitive expression stopped us in our tracks. Her mother, Evangelina, confirmed that her baby's size was due to good #health. Taking #prenatal #multivitamins from early in #pregnancy, Evangelina carried to term and delivered a healthy baby girl with relative ease.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Evangelina was remarkably driven, not just as a caring mother, but also as an enterprising #businesswoman. Evangelina’s motivation may well be indicative of the shift that seems to be happening amongst the women in her #community, empowered by good health, and opportunity, prospects for their future are coming into focus.

Loud, squeaking sounds pierced the air and caught our attention at a vitamin distribution in Haldwani, India. The unexpected source? A pair of shoes, worn by two-and-a-half-year-old Biraj. The shoes, we found out, were intentionally loud so his mother could easily find the wandering child.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Despite his large sense of wonder, the curious toddler was notably small for his age—a probable consequence of lacking access to nutritious foods since he was a baby. His mother shared that Biraj used to suffer from diarrhea regularly. But, after receiving both vitamin A and a deworming tablet at the community’s previous distribution, his symptoms cleared up and now he has much more energy, which was abundantly clear! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When Kaila, Assistant Vitamin Manager at @Sprouts Farmers Market in Redondo Beach, learned the company was running a contest to go on a trip with Vitamin Angels, she did not anticipate the profound impact it would have on her life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her winning essay earned her a life-changing trip to Honduras. The community she visited and people she met inspired her to finally take the plunge to enroll in nursing school, so she can fulfill her dream of helping people around the world.

Millions of pregnant women and young children worldwide are at-risk for malnutrition. National health systems and international agencies serve approximately 70% of those in need yet, despite their best efforts, millions go unreached due to a variety of complex factors related to geographic location, infrastructure, environment, social norms, discrimination, education and other influences.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These underserved populations often have the greatest nutritional needs, which is why Vitamin Angels, alongside local field partners, goes the extra mile to reach some of the most hard-to-reach mothers and children in the world. 🌎 Read on to learn about some of these communities. https://www.vitaminangels.org/stories/reaching-the-unreachable-communities-worldwide

About a month ago, Kaveri’s young mother couldn’t see the usual twinkle in her daughter’s eyes. She had developed a dryness that led to whitening of the transparent part of the eyes. When she was taken to the doctor, she was diagnosed with Keratomalacia - an eye disorder that results from vitamin A deficiency.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once keratomalacia was diagnosed, Kaveri was treated with high-dose vitamin A. Within a few hours of receiving her first dose of Vitamin A Kaveri’s eyes turned transparent again. A week, and two more doses of Vitamin A later, Kaveri’s eyesight was restored.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Children like Kevari often don't have access to nutrition needed for healthy development. That's why we aim to stop malnutrition before it starts by providing life-changing vitamins for pregnant mothers and children under the age of five. For just 25 cents, you can help a child like Kevari.

Meet Nafia, one of the 2.5 million moms we're reaching with prenatal multivitamins this year. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition to caring for her 2-year-old daughter Gifti, cooking for her family, and walking 2km to get water from the well each day, this enterprising young mother also makes time to participate in a community women’s group which meets weekly and provides women with job training and income-generating opportunities. The women’s group, organized by Global Health Network, is also where Nafia learned about the prenatal multivitamins offered by the local health clinic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Programs like this demonstrate that when offered the opportunity, motivated women are empowered to effect change in their own lives and health, and carry on that positive influence to their communities, their children and even future generations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The birth of a baby is cause for celebration! But how each culture, country, and religion welcomes new life is beautifully unique and often reflective of the unique heritage of the community. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we expand our reach to support safe pregnancies and healthy babies for more women around the world, on occasion, we are granted the honor of being exposed to some of the beautiful birth traditions practiced by those we serve. We share these special stories as a reminder that in our diverse world, birth is something that unites us all.
