Our mission is to combat the effects of global malnutrition by providing food sourced supplements to children in need.
Our vision is to see over five million children across the world embrace a greater quality of life, thriving, nourished and full of hope.
Nutrition is the supply of necessary nutrients from food and water that our bodies require to stay alive. The M5M Foundation believes that proper nutrition enables living and thriving. These “nutrients” are found in fruits, vegetables, meats, minerals, grains and oils. Unfortunately, there are many communities around the world that do not have access to a variety of these nutrient sources, leaving millions to fall under the category of “malnourished.” Malnourishment simply refers to the state of being undernourished or over nourished to the point where the body is not receiving or retaining the essential nutrients to sustain health.
According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, roughly 100 million children in developing countries are underweight and over 150 million are malnourished.
The World Food Programme explains that 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.
But the worst thing to hear is that poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under 5. That’s 3.1 million children each year. The Lancet, 2013
