The aim of the program is to provide Medika Mumba bars (high-energy, high-protein bars) to children from toddlers to 14-year-olds who are severely malnourished---many near death. After 6 weeks of being on the nutrient-rich bars, the children are then transferred to Manna rice packs for a year, which is rice that is fortified with a large number of vitamins, minerals, and proteins.
$100 CAD buys one box of Medika Mumba bars. It takes about one box to treat one severely malnourished child.
$15 CAD buys one box of Manna rice packs that is required for each child, each month, i.e. the dollar equivalent of 1.5 Big Mac combo meals feeds a malnourished child for a MONTH!
$2,000 CAD buys manna packs for the 150 children on the program for a month.
100 % of the money raised for the Palto Project goes directly to the project.
So, if you have ever wondered how you could really do something to give life to those starving children you have seen on TV and in magazines, look no further. . .
The Palto Project in Haiti is just the answer that you have been looking for!
CHILD has a very easy question: Will you buy one or two or three pies?
Each one of the pies that YOU buy will allow CHILD to buy lifesaving Medika Mamba bars and Manna packs for the severely malnourished toddlers and children in Haiti.
It really is that easy! Now is the time for you to make a difference!
