  2. Fresh milk for children will improve their physical and cognitive growth and development.

Fresh Milk for Children

Gift for Hungry Children — Provide cartons of fresh milk for children in Vietnam.

Vietnam-MapProgram Goal:  Fresh milk is urgently needed for malnourished children in Vietnam. Parents in the mountainous areas do not have enough money to buy fresh milk for their children. This project will provide fresh cartons of milk to 15,000 children in the region — improving their physical, cognitive and intellectual growth and development.

Fresh milk is good for a child’s health. Milk contains nine essential nutrients and vitamins, including protein, vitamins A, D, and B12, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin, zinc and magnesium. Children who drink milk tend to have "superior" overall nutrient intakes compared with children who don't drink milk (according to a study released last year by researchers at Environ International Corp., the University of Vermont and the National Dairy Council).

When a child is malnourished during the first two years of life, the child's physical and mental growth and development can be affected for the rest of that child's life. The milk you provide as supplemental nutrition now will help prevent long-term problems for children, increasing their ability to develop into healthy, independent adults.

The hope is to begin implementing the water tank facilities throughout the remainder of 2012 and through 2013.

Expected Results: This project will directly benefit 15,000 children in the mountainous region of Vietnam. The gift of fresh milk will provide these undernourished children with essential nutrients, vital to their physical and cognitive growth and development – enabling them to thrive and also lead a healthy and productive life.

Milk, an essential nutritional supplement, supports healthy growth in children.
