    Meds and Food for Kids After many years of research, Dr. Patricia Wolff, a Haiti Mission team pediatrician, developed a recipe for nutritional supplements, which she brought to the Tovar Clinic in Grison-Garde, for the treatment of malnutrition in hundreds of children. This "Medica Mamba" (peanut butter medicine in Creole) is particularly effective in children with kwashiorkor - a serious protein deficiency.

    Tilt-A-World - Builds community-sized playgrounds for orphanages and feeding centers around the world. Why playgrounds? Because children deserve to laugh and play and our mission is to give them a safe place to have fun. Tilt-A-World has teamed with architects, builders and manufacturers to create a very efficient building process. The blueprints are complete, our builders pay their own travel expenses, and we have some of the materials given to us at cost. Because of this, we are able to build playgrounds for approximately $5,500.00. There are some material transportation costs that may vary depending on the destination country.

    StopHungerNow - Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world.

Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program provides volunteers the opportunity to package dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that are used in crisis situations and in school feeding programs for schools and orphanages in developing countries around the world.
