Malnutrition Treatment

60 million children worldwide are severely malnourished.

A child who is severely wasted/malnourished is 11 times more likely to die than a child who is not.

Malnutrition reduces a child’s ability to fight illnesses like pneumonia and cholera, and inhibits their ability to develop cognitively and physically.

There is a solution: Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) has a 92% success rate in curing severe acute malnutrition in just 8-12 weeks.

MFK’s Medika Mamba RUTF is produced in our Haitian factory, and then distributed to children in need with the help of local and international partners.

We work with over a dozen Haitian clinics to treat malnourished infants and toddlers, and train nurses to use the best treatment protocols to save lives.

Our partnership with UNICEF also helps us export Medika Mamba to 17 additional countries where children are suffering from severe malnutrition.

Medika Mamba gives malnourished children a second chance at a future.

Together, we can save a generation.

Alexon was 7 years old and weighed only 29 pounds, the average weight of a 3 year old.

He was too sick to walk or even stand, and no one knew if he would survive.

After just two months of treatment, he was completely transformed and able to run, play, and return to school. Now Alexon is a thriving, talented teenager.
