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.

Save 40 Acres of Tropical Rainforest & Tiger Habitat: Completed April 29, 2016

77227_1000_3

80,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

The vast majority of Sumatra’s spectacular rainforests have been rampantly destroyed in recent decades to make way for growing swaths of oil palm and rubber plantations. That’s why Rainforest Trust is working with local partner FKL to strategically purchase private properties in the region to establish the Kluet Wildlife Reserve. This reserve will prevent further colonization, deforestation, and protect against wildlife poaching in the region. You can help. Just $9.82 saves an acre of tropical rainforest in the Leuser Ecosystem.

80,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

With increased knowledge, research can assist in identifying habitats to protect, as the polar bear is completely reliant on this specialized living environment. By increasing the areas that are protected, polar bears will have larger spaces for denning and raising their cubs. You can help. Your donation will go toward research and the conservation of diminishing polar bear habitat. It is imperative to protect polar bear habitat now before it’s too late.

Feed 5 Orphaned Chimpanzee Babies For 3 Months: Completed April 25, 2016

75622

120,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Chimpanzees and gorillas in protected forests in Africa are shot down and butchered in the bushmeat trade, and the babies, who are too small to eat, are sold on the black market to be pets. In other areas, baby primates are stolen from the forest to be trafficked to China or the Middle East where they are sold as pets or put on exhibit in appallingly inhumane zoos. Thousands of chimpanzees and other primates who have been rescued as babies from the horrific wildlife trade now live at Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) member wildlife centers across Africa. You can help. Just $10 feeds a baby chimpanzee for one week.
