Mana Nutrition: How You Can Save a Life

My sister is now working for an outstanding non-profit known as Mana Nutrition. MANA dedicates itself on providing ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF), and it's been designed specifically to treat kids diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition (SAM). Basically, MANA is providing peanut butter mixed with fortified milk in over-sized ketchup packets, and it's saving thousands of malnourished children every day. 

A child diagnosed with SAM can be literally on the brink of death. On average, three packets of MANA per day for six weeks will revive a child, getting him or her back to normal nutritive levels, healthy, responsive and happy. Better yet, the track record is such that kids who have been restored rarely fall back or need RUTF again. Watch the video below to learn more. 

How can we help? You can donate to help give more MANA to kids who need it. For $60, a child is saved, brought back from the brink of death. Beat Dropping is beginning a donation page where anyone can donate any amount they feel is appropriate or possible. Even a donation of $1 can and will make a difference. To donate, visit Beat Dropping's donation page, or just click the button on the side bar to your right. You can learn more, you can spread the word, and you can help save thousands of hungry lives...
