Every year, we invite our customers to take part in serving communities across the globe who lack the resources many of us take for granted each day. In 2017, Advent will provide 30,000 MANA packets to alleviate malnutrition in 200 children in West Africa.
MANA — “Mother Administered Nutritive Aid” — is what aid workers refer to as a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF). It’s a fortified peanut paste that’s been carefully formulated to provide all of a child’s basic nutritional needs. Just three servings of MANA a day can save the life of a starving child.
This is the third year in a row our customers will work to cure malnutrition in starving children, bringing the total to more than 600 children set free from the shackles of hunger.
