Medicines for Humanity Receives USAID Grant to Provide Food Assistance to Children in Haiti

Medicines for Humanity (MFH) is very proud to be awarded a USAID food assistance grant through the Food for Peace, International Food Relief Partnership. This grant will allow MFH to provide vulnerable children in Haiti with Nutributter, a nutritional supplement that helps to prevent malnutrition. Over the next 18 months, MFH will work to distribute Nutributter to toddlers in seven clinics operated by an order of Catholic Sisters in Haiti. This effort will improve nutrient intake for as many 12,000 children and provide nutrition education to parents to help families stay healthy after the project has ended. The partnership aims to address chronic malnutrition and stunting, which affects approximately twenty percent of children in Haiti. This project is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
