Just in from Haiti

Vitamin Angels recently received an update and photos from our partners at Midwives for Haiti who we sent prenatal multivitamins for 5,033 pregnant and lactating women last year.

Philomene, a midwife with their mobile clinic said “The multivitamins help the women very much because many times, when they come to the clinic for the first time, they tell us that they cannot eat, they are weak, and when you see their physical body you can see that they are not really well fit. After we give them the multivitamins, they come back for another prenatal appointment and say that they are eating better, feeling better, and when we weigh them we see they have a better weight.”
