The Huffington Post: A Definite Cure for Malnutrition
By Gillaine Warne in The Huffington Post

Throughout Haiti, one of every three children under five years old suffers from malnutrition. Zanmi Agrikol is the agricultural arm of Zanmi Lasante (Creole for "Partners In Health"). As an organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and disease, we have chosen to reach out to families who have children in special programs for severe malnutrition and are being treated with Ready to Use Therapeutic Food.
