Every Child Fed (ECF) assists Project Peanut Butter (PPB) with financial support as they face a major milestone in their efforts to pass critical inspections at their manufacturing plant in Sierra Leone. PPB and ECF have partnered together to ensure that the manufacturing plant passes the necessary inspections to meet international food safety standards. Once they pass this inspection, they’ll be able to sell RUTF’s to UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, USAid and other NGO’s.
This is a very important step in achieving sustainability and enabling the Sierra Leone operation to generate a revenue stream that will cover their costs of manufacturing RUTF’s. Ultimately, this equates to reaching more at-risk children and saving lives.
Every Child Fed is excited to announce its partnership with Dr. Manary and Project Peanut Butter to address the every growing issue of severe malnutrition in children in Malawi and Sierra Leone.
Dr. Manary has been in Sub-Sahara Africa for the past 11 years helping to win the battle against severe malnutrition and food insecurity.
