Give Two Years Of Super Nutrition For Kids

FUNDED March 25 2013 – Thank You!

PIH_RUTF_Baby_33094According to the World Health Organization, malnutrition contributes to more than one third of all child deaths, although it is rarely listed as the direct cause. Instead, children weakened by malnutrition become susceptible to common diseases. It is also a condition as easy to overcome as peanut butter on a spoon.

The creation of Ready-to-use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) has given healthworkers around the world a revolutionary way to treat severe malnutrition safely and quickly. The RUTF is a ready-to-use paste which does not need to be mixed with water. The product, which is based on peanut butter mixed with dried skimmed milk and vitamins and minerals, provides sufficient nutrients for children to make a rapid and full recovery from malnutrition. It can even be stored for three to four months without refrigeration, even at tropical temperatures.

PIH_RUTF_Manufacturer_33094Partners In Health contracts with businesses in countries where they work to produce high quality RUTF. This approach not only improves access to treatment but also strengthens local economies.

PIH was founded in 1987 to deliver health care to the residents of Haiti’s mountainous Central Plateau region. Since then, PIH has expanded to provide healthcare to the neediest children around the world. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH is bringing the benefits of modern medical science to those children most in need of them and serving as an antidote to despair.

GreaterGood.org’s contributions to Partners In Health’s programs to save children worldwide are made possible by the support of donors, shoppers, and clickers at The Hunger Site.

135,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

The Las Tángaras area of northwestern Colombia is home to many endangered species and may hold one of the world’s greatest concentrations of species new to science. Unfortunately, there are few controls against colonization, creating an urgent need to buy this land before it is developed. Parcels of forest are currently being sold to the timber, mining and agriculture industries who will inevitably destroy their incredibly diverse ecosystems. Rainforest Trust needs your help to acquire crucial property in Las Tángaras that will ensure this destruction doesn’t continue. Click today to help Rainforest Trust protect this crucial environment before it is lost forever!

90,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Decades of political turmoil and natural disasters have caused widespread suffering, especially for Haiti’s children. Because so many of them suffer from malnutrition, recovering from illnesses such as malaria, typhoid and polio is especially difficult. Equally alarming is the fact that 90% of residents live far from a hospital. GreaterGood.org has teamed up with Jason Derulo, Jordin Sparks, and The M.A.D. Girls Inc. to combat Haiti’s tragic healthcare situation. With your support, they can give Haiti’s children access to Community Health Workers who will provide the care they so desperately need. There is no need for these children to suffer. Your clicks help them get the basic care they deserve.

Decades of conflict in Uganda have left more than 3 million children orphaned. Many of the life-threatening challenges affecting these children can be prevented with nutritious meals and regular medical checkups, but humanitarian organizations rarely service rural areas. The Hungry Tummies Project works for the sole purpose of giving rural Ugandan children nutritious food, routine medical care and clean water. Making sure Uganda’s children are cared for means they will be able to grow into healthy bodies, and be productive young adults—helping to end the cycle of poverty.

135,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Urban pollution is on the rise. Now is the time to change the way city dwellers think about trees! City trees clean the air, provide carbon sinks, and make the cityscape more beautiful. But cities are seldom planned in a way that promotes healthy tree growth. Even when they do survive, city trees are frequently cut down to make way for new buildings or to improve views. Trees for Cities (TFC) works with local communities around the world to tackle global warming, create social cohesion and beautify urban areas of greatest need through their tree-planting and community education projects. Your clicks help plant much-needed trees in the UK, helping re-green England for many generations to come!
