Sub-project:
Distribution of Vitamins for Malnutrition

India and Indonesia

Grassroots Asia has a multi-vitamin and pre-natel vitamin program for the distribution of nutrition to those in need. Orissa has a serious problem with medical care and malnutrition in particular and we find ample opportunity to be of help. We started the program by simply buying vitamins and distributing them and found so much need we approached Vitamin Angels for help. They have been very supportive and have offered pre-natal vitamins for distribution. We distribute through multiple outlets in Orissa and W. Bengal. We even provide free pre-natal vitamins at our commercial outlets for the women in the slum areas, where malnutrition rates are extremely high.
