The company is donating 12 tons of nutritional supplements to rural Honduras through Direct Relief International.
Dietary supplement and nutraceutical manufacturer Vita-Tech International Inc. (Tustin, CA) has partnered with Direct Relief International to donate multi-mineral tablets to relief efforts in Honduras.
The company will donate a 12-ton supply of calcium-magnesium-and-zinc tablets directed to pregnant and nursing women in the country. The donation is part of Vita-Tech’s ongoing work with Global Medical Brigades of the University of California-Santa Barbara-an organization providing relief for people in rural areas with limited access to health care.
“This donation will impact the lives of many women and children by helping them get the nutritional support they need,” said Direct Relief pharmacist Cathleen Grabowski.
”It will give a significant boost to pregnant and nursing mothers in order to improve health outcomes.”
Vita-Tech has donated more than 17 tons of nutritional supplements to relief efforts in the last two years.
