Our village nurses identify, treat, and track the recovery of the neediest children in their community. Our peanut-based Ready to Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) product, “Nuts for Kids,” is made locally. Nearly all the ingredients used in this life-saving supplement are purchased in the DRC.
Making RUTF locally is more sustainable and less expensive than bringing RUTF from the U.S. It also creates local jobs and empowers the community! Please help us sustain and grow this program, which is giving hundreds of malnourished children a fighting chance.
