Huda, India

Meet Huda, a vibrant three-year-old girl from Mumbai who has been receiving vitamin A from Vitamin Angels for nearly two years.

Huda's mother, Samreen, reports that her daughter's energy and appetite have steadily increased, and now Huda is school bound!

Kevin, Indonesia

Kevin lives in eastern Indonesia with his parents and newborn baby sister. He's been receiving both vitamin A and deworming tablets since he was six months old, and now he's sick less frequently and has more energy. His mother, Orce, hopes that Kevin's improved health will help him grow up to complete his education and contribute to society.
