Today, over 65 million people worldwide are displaced from their homes.
When individuals are displaced, access to essentials, including good nutrition, can suffer. At the same time, exposure to infection and disease can increase. This combination of circumstances creates a dangerous situation, especially for the most vulnerable - pregnant women and young children.
We stand with the United Nations and #WithRefugees on World Refugee Day (June 20) to commemorate not only the courage and sacrifices of refugees but also to acknowledge the tireless efforts of our field partners who are committed to supporting them on the path to better health and nutrition. These brave individuals are distributing our vitamins despite extreme adversity. Learn more about some of our shared efforts to serve displaced women and children in Bangladesh, Lebanon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Philippines, India, and the Dominican Republic.
55% of refugees come from 3 countries: South Sudan, Afghanistan & Syria. Vitamin Angels works with field partners to serve populations from all three of those countries.
