Childhood malnutrition is a serious problem in Haiti’s Central Plateau, where St. Joseph Clinic is located.

Our Medika Mamba Program is working to reverse this heartbreaking situation by providing a nutritional supplement that restores 90% of severely malnourished children to health in two to three months.  Although the Haitian government provides St. Joseph Clinic with a small amount of Medika Mamba supplements, they do not provide us with enough to treat all of the malnourished kids in the program, and it is not uncommon to go weeks without this essential supplement.  We need your help to keep this critical program running!
