Lief Labs (Valencia, CA) made a commitment to support Vitamin Angels’ Healthy Futures Initiative, a unified effort working to raise $500,000 to address the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable communities in the United States and globally.

“Due to the impact of this global health crisis, Lief Labs’ sponsorship and commitment to support the important efforts of Vitamin Angels is even more critical,” said Adel Villalobos, CEO and founder of Lief, in a press release. “We are extremely proud to join Vitamin Angels’ Healthy Futures Initiative to help ensure that vulnerable populations heavily impacted by COVID-19 receive the essential nutrients they need to build the foundation for a healthy future.”

Vitamin Angels will use the funds to:

  • Scale-up Vitamin Angels’ prenatal multiple micronutrient program to further combat high food insecure communities and the increased risk of malnutrition for vulnerable pregnant women.
  • Scale-up Vitamin Angels’ vitamin A program to fill gaps in coverage caused by disrupted systems, which can leave children vulnerable to illness and infection.
  • Expand training materials and digital tools to train more service providers that can support overwhelmed health systems.

“Our work ensuring that nutritionally vulnerable populations receive access to the essential nutrients they need has never been more important than right now,” Howard Schiffer, Vitamin Angels founder and president, said in a press release. “Thank you, Lief Labs for your generous commitment to the health and well-being of the most vulnerable pregnant women and children among us. Through your support, our work will continue, and together we will help mitigate the devastating effects of COVID-19 and make this world a healthier place.”
