In some of the most severe cases of acute malnutrition, babies suffer from extreme hunger as well as medical complications. At times, they can become so weak they reject their own mothers' milk. While breastfeeding is always the best way to build a small child's strength, there's an innovation that can save tiny lives at risk: LifeMilk*.
LifeMilk is a super-nutritious food that is packed with the vitamins and minerals starving children need to regain strength — and survive. This high-energy therapeutic milk is easily digestible for even the most severely malnourished babies. And because it comes in powder form, it can be easily distributed to the most remote parts of the world.
*The term "LifeMilk" refers to the high-energy therapeutic milk F100 and F75 and should not be confused with any other product of a similar name. In most cases, World Vision receives F100 and F75 as a donated product and funds raised through this appeal will be used to support programs that administer the product as well as other vital health programs.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
