Millions of children around the world are suffering from “hidden hunger,” a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when children consume enough calories to survive, but their diets lack the vitamins and minerals necessary to thrive. Vitamin Angels is combating hidden hunger by reaching pregnant women, new mothers and children under five with lifesaving life changing vitamins and minerals.
In 2011, after witnessing the impact of this great cause, NeoCell partnered with Vitamin Angels and has since
at-risk mothers and children get the essential their bodies need to survive, thrive, and reach their full potential,
BUT OUR WORK IS NOT FINISHED.
NeoCell believes that everyone should have access to good health. Our continued partnership with Vitamin Angels will only grow as we work to address this global health need.
NeoCell is fortunate to be able to give back to our communities through our ongoing work with Vitamin Angels, an organization which saves children’s lives by providing essential micronutrients to infants and children in need. Vitamin Angels is committed to reducing child mortality by assuring the availability and use of essential nutrients, such as the critical Vitamin A to children under age five. According to Vitamin Angels, a single 25-cent donation is enough to provide one at-risk child with vitamin A, an intervention that can reduce child mortality by an average of 24%.
We are so proud to say that in 2011, NeoCell was able to donate over 30k dollars to Vitamin Angels, giving 120,000 kids the nutrients they need! We are ramping up to our 2012 promotion for them, and can’t wait to see what we are able to contribute this year!
