Emergency Food for Children
Quick, nutritious and lifesaving
Time is of the essence for malnourished children. To survive a food crisis, they need something quick and nutritious. We give them therapeutic foods like Plumpy’nut, a vitamin-packed, protein-rich paste that requires neither preparation nor medical supervision. It’s easy to distribute, tastes good to children and—most importantly—puts them on the path to health. $68 can deliver a month’s supply of emergency food packets for at least 50 malnourished children.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
Why they’ll Love a Rescue Gift
“Educating girls in underdeveloped countries is really important to both my mother and me, so I gave my mom a Rescue Gift. She said it was the best gift she’d ever gotten.”
