Project Healthy Children is non-profit organization that fights micronutrient deficiencies in developing countries. They work in conjunction with governmental agencies to provide and implement food fortification programs targeting those most in need. Ensuring vitamins and minerals like, iodine, iron, vitamin A, zinc and various B-complex vitamins including folic acid to fortify foods such as flour, sugar, rice, and oil costs about 26 cents per person fed, per year. Let that number sink in as I let PHC hammer it home!
From the website:
"Food fortification is the most cost effective health intervention available."
The cost per person per year is as low as $0.26 per person per year, varying based on the food and specific vitamins added. This means for every $0.26 that is donated, one person is provided with essential vitamins and minerals through a fortified food product for an entire year."
