AfD has partnered with Vitamin Angels to support pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and children under five who are at risk of malnutrition and do not have access to national health services. Vitamin Angels provides annual grants of vitamin A, albendazole, and prenatal multivitamins to qualified local nonprofit organizations – like AfD – who want to supplement their existing community healthcare or nutrition services.
The grant awarded to AfD for distribution across Afghanistan through our nutrition and health programs includes: albendazole for 103,000 children aged 1 to 5 years; multivitamins for 6,900 pregnant women; vitamin A for 44,000 children 6 to 11 months; vitamin A for 103,500 children aged 1 to 5 years.
