Helen Keller International has delivered vitamin A supplementation to children worldwide since the 1970’s. Vitamin A provides young children with a critical nutrient to build healthy immune systems and strong vision. Research shows that providing doses of vitamin A supplementation twice a year to children from six months to five years of age can reduce child mortality by almost a quarter. The organization now delivers vitamin A to millions of vulnerable children annually in twelve countries in West, Central, and East Africa.
