Vitamin Angels are a charity that help at-risk populations in need... specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five gain access to life-saving and life-changing vitamins and minerals.
Omvits and Vitamin Angels believe in a world where every child, from the day he or she is born, gets a chance at a healthy and productive life.
Since we launched in 2017, we've been steadily increasing our support for Vitamin Angels year-upon-year,
So far, our customers helped us to provide essential and life-saving vitamins to over 40,000 children who were at risk of malnutrition.
We're delighted to announce that we have surpassed our 2021 goal of helping 12,000 children and reached 17,394!
We're determined to continue this trend and have big plans for 2022!

Of all the worthy causes out there that we care about, why did we choose to support Vitamin Angels?
In 2019, Vitamin Angels reached 61+ million children and mothers across 59 countries with vitamin A, deworming tablets, prenatal vitamins and education.
We wanted to make sure our donations are reaching the people who need them.
Vitamin Angels have minimal admin costs, so at least 90% of their expenses go directly to bringing vitamins to those most in need worldwide.
We wanted to make sure the money we donate actually makes a difference.
Vitamin Angels are very efficient at getting the nutrients where they're needed, so we know our donations will go a long way.
Vitamin Angels are transparent about where they spend their money and their financials are available to see on their website.
Vitamin A is something we take for granted, particularing in developed countries.
Vegan or not, it's easy to get it as part of our diet. However, this isn't always the case in developing nations.
Poverty and malnutrition often means that children are deficient in vitamin A, resulting in stunted growth, a weakened immune system and possible blindness to name a few.
A high-dose vitamin A supplement is a quick and effective way of providing this life-saving nutrient.
The Vitamin Angels website is packed with information about the great work they do. You can also make a donation from their website if you wish to do so.
