Vitamin Angels

Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is one of the leading causes of childhood blindness, malnutrition and child mortality across the world. This is due to insufficient nutritional food in the early years of their life, lack of education and awareness, poor sanitation and the inaccessibility of health services in far flung and remote corners of the world, including many parts of India.

Childhood blindness is preventable. And you can help make a difference. All it takes is a simple, inexpensive, and proven intervention – one high-dose vitamin A capsule, given twice a year to children 6-59 months of age.

Vitamin Angels and Samarpan has been helping reduce childhood blindness for over 2 Years in Dehradun.
