Each year, 6 million children die from malnutrition. That's one child every six seconds. Malnutrition is more than hunger, but malnourished children are often painfully hungry. Causes of malnutrition include disease, poverty and food shortages.
For millions of orphans and children around the world, essential nutrition is simply not an available option. Malnutrition is considered to be a child's most difficult challenge. According to UNICEF's most recent statistics, every year five million children die from malnutrition. That's one child every six seconds! Children become malnourished when they don't receive the adequate nutrients their bodies need to maintain health.
Why Food Is Not Enough
Current food programs lack many of the nutrients young children need. According to the international relief organization Doctors Without Borders, food is not enough. In fact, these fortified, blended flours no longer meet the minimum nutritional criteria for young children set by experts at the World Health Organization. In other words, filling a child's stomach not only fails to correct the problem, but it serves as only a temporary fix to a much bigger problem.
What This Means For Children
Getting proper and sufficient nutritional support in the first few years of life is critical for child development. Lack of proper nutritional support in children under five can cause effects that can last a lifetime. Thanks to EvolvHealth, children can now get the nutritional support their growing bodies need. The various products EvolvHealth offers are suitable to feed to children as they can be easily added to any cooked meal or given in chewable form.
What This Means For Caregivers
Finding decent, edible food for all three meals of the day for dozens of children at a time is hard enough. Making those meals nutritious and healthy for the human body is an even more challenging task. Not anymore. With the nutritional support EvolvHealth provides, caregivers can simply add a serving into any cooked meal or provide a chewable supplement to the children providing them with the nutrient support their bodies require.

Charitable trusts can help with estate planning, philanthropy, and taxes. A charitable trust allows a donor to set assets aside for one or more charities. There are two different types of charitable "split interest" trusts—charitable remainder trusts (CRTs) and charitable lead trusts (CLTs). These types of trusts "split" the assets between a charitable and noncharitable beneficiary. Which type you choose depends on your priorities with respect to estate planning and wealth preservation, how you want the charity to receive the gift, and even the types of assets you wish to donate.
