I have worked all over the world and seen poverty beyond poverty so getting involved in an organization focused on combatting malnutrition was a way to make a difference. Not only has Edesia impacted malnutrition in 4 million of the world's most vulnerable children, but is also using the research and development arm to create and advance new ready to use products both internationally and in the US. We cannot do it alone - please get involved and share your talents!
