Alliance Healthcare Cycle Challenge 2019

Vitamin Angels and Alliance Healthcare are proud to host the Alliance Healthcare Cycle Challenge to help raise funds to combat childhood malnutrition in the U.K. and around the world.

During the challenge the Alliance Healthcare cycle team will cover over 260 miles cycling from Leeds Service Centre to Chessington Service Centre from Thursday 5 September to Monday 9 September.

Alliance Healthcare Championship 2019

On 21 July, 2019 Alliance Healthcare employees took to the pitch for the seventh annual Alliance Healthcare Championships. Teams participated in both netball and football tournaments to help raise money for Vitamin Angels.

At the event, Graffiti King's were on site to create custom footballs. For every football purchased, Vitamin Angels will give a football to a child in the field. 

Thank you to all the Alliance Healthcare employees who participated in this event. Together, we can help end childhood malnutrition in the U.K. and around the world.


Alliance Healthcare and Vitamin Angels: Working together to fight childhood malnutrition in the U.K. and around the world.

Malnutrition is the number one cause of preventable childhood deaths. 

One out of four children in the U.K. are living in poverty and are at-risk for food insecurity.

To combat this issue, Vitamin Angels is working with a national U.K. charity to provide a feeding programme to nurseries in low-income communities.  

These nurseries have the opportunity to self-select a variety of fruits, vegetables, and high-protein food items to incorporate into the snacks and meals they are giving to the children—at no cost to the families or the nurseries.

To compliment this programme, Vitamin Angels is also developing nutrition education tools.

 

In addition to Vitamin Angels direct feeding program, the organization works to combat malnutrition through nutrition programs including:  

  • Vitamin SupplementationPrenatal multivitamins for pregnant women support healthy pregnancies and give children the foundation for a lifetime of good health. Vitamin A supplementation for young children. When a child lacks vitamin A in their diet during the early stages of development, they can get sick, go blind and even die. Vitamin Angels provides vitamin A supplementation for children in developing countries who lack access to foods rich in vitamin A.

  • Infection Prevention - Combatting childhood infections that pre-dispose young children to become under-nourished by distributing deworming tablets to young children living in areas where infection is endemic.

  • Promoting optimal infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices, such as breastfeeding and complementary feeding through information sharing of best practices with field partners.
