Give Children A Choice had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Vitamin Angels of Santa Barbara, CA to distribute vitamins to 24,000 preschool children in 576 villages in Xieng Khouang Province from 2010 to 2012. The vitamins are western grade, chewable multiple vitamins.
This project was a huge undertaking to procure the vitamins, ship the vitamins to Xieng Khouang Province’s capital Phonsavan, distribute the vitamins to the preschool children in a province, where poor road conditions make access to some villages challenging.
Give Children is incredibly excited about the success of the project in a country where 40% of of children are suffering from malnutrition.
Give Children A Choice appreciates the many people who have helped make this project a success and the support it is receiving from Xieng Khouang Province Health Department, Mother and Child Division; the Ministry of Public Health, Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
We are grateful.
