 Many of these children suffer from night blindness by the age of 5. Vitamin A is effective in preventing this.

Most of these children are infected with parasites which add to the problem of malnutrition

Vitamin A and Albendazole are provided to all in need.

Vitamin A:
    People with Vitamin A deficiencies are specifically at risk for blindness, severe illness and death due to a suppressed immune system.

    Parasites consume about 1/3 of the daily nutrition consumed by people infected by parasites.  Eliminating parasites, improves nutritional 
absorption.  Diseases and complications due to susceptible parasites are reduced or eliminated.
