How Does BuyOne|FeedOneTM work?
We work directly with some amazing, reputable non-profit organizations in the developing world working to stem and over time end malnutrition in young children. Currently, we directly purchase and distribute a RUTF (ready-to-use therpeutic food) made by our non-profit friends to children diagnosed with and suffering from malnutrition. Malnutrition is the lack of proper amounts of essential nutrients, often causing stunted growth, weakened immune system, slowed brain development, and in some cases death. The RUTFs we purchase and distribute are shown to provide the calories and macronutrients needed to stem malnutrition and return the child to a healthy state. For every unit of food that is sold, we purchase one RUTF.
"Two-and-a-half year old Marie-Ange was admitted to the Medika Mamba treatment program at the Haiti Rescue center weighing 13 lbs. After Medika Mamba treatment, Marie weighed a healthy 20 lbs and graduated from the program along with her brother and sister." from mfkhaiti.org
In many places in our world injustice still exists. We feel a deep responsibility to vanquish that injustice so that children everywhere have the same opportunity to grow and learn and be happy. In many of places we’ve visited around the world, young children are held back because they don’t have access to good food or proper nutrients. Malnutrition takes the lives of millions worldwide and seizes the hopes and dreams from many million more. Through BuyOne|FeedOne, we can make a dramatic positive impact on young children’s lives, providing nutrition their bodies need to grow and learn and blossom into the next generation of world-changers.
