Do You Believe in Angels?

We believe in angels! The Vitamin Angel Alliance, Inc., a non-profit, non-governmental organization, works to reduce global malnutrition by providing nutritional supplements to children in underserved communities worldwide. They have helped 52 million children in 66 countries including the United States.

Vitamin Angels World Map

Nearly half (45%) of all deaths of children under 5 years old are linked to malnutrition — over 3 million children every year. Furthermore, over 160 million children are so undernourished that their growth is stunted, putting them at a greater risk of dying from infections. Malnutrition in very young children can also impair cognitive function. In the United States alone, 13 million children go hungry.

Vitamin Angels believes that providing multivitamins to fill nutritional gaps is a way to reduce global malnutrition. They also treat children with albendazole, (an anti-parasitic drug that can treat infections caused by tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms and pinworms) because these parasites can cause pain and illness and interfere with nutrient absorption. Additionally, Vitamin Angels helps to ensure future good health by offering prenatal vitamins, as well as nutritional counseling, to women while pregnant and breastfeeding.

These earth angels also provide Vitamin A supplements to strengthen the immune systems of children who don’t have access to foods containing Vitamin A. Just two doses a year is all it takes to fight Vitamin A deficiency which can lead to illness, blindness and even death. Vitamin Angels offers a better and simpler solution than the genetically-modified “golden rice” alternative.

Do You Want to be an Angel, Too?

Mission: Possible!

Vitamin Angels' mission is to help at-risk populations in need – specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five – gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals.

If you would like to learn more and/or make a contribution to help Vitamin Angels continue to ensure that at-risk children and moms around the world receive vital nutrition, visit Vitamin Angels’ website. As little as twenty-five cents* can help a child for an entire year.

*Twenty-five cents is Vitamin Angels’ approximate cost to provide the recommended annual doses of vitamin A per beneficiary child to their field partners. It reflects the approximate cost for the purchases of micronutrient products manufactured to their technical specifications, plus warehousing, shipping & handling associated with getting product to a port of entry, technical assistance, and Program Division staff costs.
