Helping UNICEF deliver therapeutic milk to children and infants

therapeutic milk UNICEF

Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) causes rapid deterioration and needs to be treated quickly.  SAM is an underlying cause of death of 400,000 children worldwide every year. At any given moment there is an estimated 20 million children with severe acute malnutrition.

F-75 and F-100 are two types of therapeutic milk used to help combat severe acute malnutrition. UNICEF is the world’s largest supplier of this milk. This is life saving treatment! This kind of milk is so much more than ordinary milk. It is carefully formulated with vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are critical to stabilizing a child’s nutritional status.

The use of this milk has led into a huge reduction in number of deaths caused by severe acute malnutrition. We can still do better!

Cardinal and Canary is committed to helping UNICEF deliver therapeutic milk to children and infants with severe acute malnutrition. That’s why we make a donation to UNICEF to buy 3 packs of therapeutic milk for every single baby gift box that we sell.
