Give Hope - Gift of Nutrition | UNICEF USA
Our Work with Therapeutic Food
UNICEF helps children achieve a healthy diet and treats those suffering from malnutrition.
Last year, UNICEF:
  • Had 600 nutrition experts working in 121 countries.
  • Along with partners, treated 3.4 million children for severe malnutrition.
  • Fed 2.5 million malnourished children during humanitarian emergencies.
  • Helped over 8 million children get nutrient supplements.
Donors help UNICEF procure more Ready-to-use-Therapeutic-Food (RUTF), a miracle treatment for severe malnutrition, than anyone else in the world—80% of the global supply.
Your donation will be applied to areas of greatest need for children.
