The Solution

Malnutrition in Haiti is the result of a combination of factors, most of which are not addressed by rescue operations and handouts. While the needs are great, a permanent, sustainable solution for Haiti is within reach. MFK’s four-pronged plan not only saves lives, but puts Haiti on the path to a stronger future.

Meds and Food for Kids’ approach is to use local labor and local resources to manufacture Medika Mamba, a treatment for malnutrition, which in turn develops the local economy.

Our current factory can’t keep up with the demand for Medika Mamba. A larger, more efficient Meds & Food for Kids factory will not only save more lives through increased production, but will have a deeper impact on the country’s economy, by employing and training more Haitian workers and using more Haitan raw materials.

 

Our Four-Part Plan

By purchasing raw materials in Haiti and sharing knowledge with farmers about how to improve their crops, we help develop markets and encourage production and growth. LEARN MORE
