Vitamin Angels: Vitamin A for 308 Remote Villages
To serve is to make others happier and healthier – Master Sha.
The journey to Bhutan has been a dream manifesting to life in so many ways! We are on a mission to serve.
Love Peace Harmony foundation is offering funds, (raised and matched) tools, songs and Tao Calligraphies and nutritional supplements from Vitamin Angels to 308 remote rural villages in Bhutan.
These villages are oftentimes a day or more away by hiking from education, healthcare and other amenities. Our mission is to offer support to these remote communities, so that when these community members reach where they have access to help they have the funds receive support . And more importantly we are teaching communities and schools how to self-heal, and songs and Calligraphies for them to enjoy to be happier and healthier.
Vitamin Angels is one of our partners in this mission to bring greater health and happiness. Malnutrition is the #1 cause of preventable child deaths, but when we say hello to power of vitamins, we may have the power to save a child’s life. Vitamin Angels provides lifesaving vitamins to mothers and children under five at risk of malnutrition — reducing preventable illness, blindness, and death — to create a healthier world.
They are reaching more than 51 million children and mothers in need in 57 countries worldwide. You can read more about their service here
Did you know that Vitamin A supplements work to strengthen immune systems and fight off life-threatening illnesses for children who don’t have access to foods with vitamin A. Two doses a year of this powerhouse nutrient combat the devastating effects of vitamin A deficiency.
Our bodies use vitamin A for many purposes. If this essential nutrient is lacking while children are still developing, they can get sick, go blind and even die. While the symptoms are not always visible, vitamin A deficiency puts the health and survival of children at risk every day.
According to the World Health Organisation – The impact of this single supplementation on childhood mortality is as great or greater than that of any one vaccine.
It warms my heart to be a very small part of this life-changing collaboration between Love Peace Harmony foundation, Tarayana Foundation and Vitamin Angels.
This visit to Bhutan has begun changing who I am even before it has started and you?
with love peace and harmony,
