An estimated 190 million children under five suffer from vitamin deficiency. Alleviating micronutrient deficiencies is an important goal because their consequences are devastating. Chronically undernourished children suffer a number of health problems that can lead to immediate life-threatening conditions as well as to a number of problems later in life including impaired physical and cognitive development, poor performance in school and subsequently, decreased earning potential performance as adults.
Omega Protein is committed to changing lives. Through our donation to Vitamin Angels, 100,000 children will receive two doses of Vitamin A this year helping them live healthier lives.
