Meet the millions
How donations from you and Walgreens can help undernourished families in America and around the world.
Elizabeth, age 3, California
Elizabeth was all smiles when Vitamin Angels met her and her mother, Karina, during a multivitamin distribution in San Diego. Karina is convinced that her commitment to ensuring her children understand the importance of good nutrition—along with the multivitamins they've been taking for a year now—is making a huge difference.
Manuel, age 3, Malawi
Flonce's family relies on the harvest from their modest farm and fish that Flonce's husband brings home rather than selling at the market. In many developing countries without fortified foods, delivery of high-dose supplements remains the principal strategy for controlling vitamin A deficiency. Inadequate vitamin A increases the risk of illness, even death, from common childhood infections like diarrhea or measles.2 At a vitamin A distribution in Malawi, Flonce told the Vitamin Angels team that her son Manuel has been very healthy and energetic since he began receiving vitamin A.
