Related tags Vitamin angels Nutrition

Non-profit group Vitamin Angels is shipping one million multivitamin pills to help children who have been affected by the earthquake in Haiti that has killed more than 50,000 people.

Vitamin Angels said that once the current emergency status clears, it will work with local authorities to regain “nutritional security” ​including long-term strategies to deal with micronutrient deficiency.

“Having been in Haiti just a few months ago, and knowing the poor condition of the infrastructure before the earthquake, we’ve been immediately concerned about our in-country partners, how the children we are currently working with are doing and how the recent disaster will impact our long-term plans for Haiti,”​ said Howard B. Schiffer, president of Vitamin Angels.

Vitamin Angels said it would direct the donations from its US partners to the immediate Haitian relief campaign while welcoming support for long-term rebuilding efforts and to “help replenish recently depleted inventories of children’s multiple vitamins.”

Vitamin Angels supplements reached more than 11 million infants and children in 40 countries in 2009.
