As the one-year anniversary nears of the earthquake that devastated Haiti, our client, Meds & Food for Kids (MFK), is receiving more (much-deserved) attention for their amazing work to end childhood malnutrition in the Carribbean country. Dr. Patricia Wolff, founder of MFK, will appear at 9:40 am today on KSDK (we’ll try to post a link to the online version) and at 11 am on Monday on KWMU’s St. Louis On the Air. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch will publish an article in Wednesday’s edition about this St. Louis-based non-profit making a difference a long way from home.
Working in Haiti since 2003 to end malnutrition and ignite economic development, MFK manufactures and distributes Medika Mamba, a ready-to-use therapeutic food which treats malnutrition. By using peanuts grown by Haitian farmers and employing Haitians in its current factory, MFK impacts the local economy while saving the lives of thousands of children. Now, as the need in Haiti continues to grow, MFK is raising funds to build a larger, more efficient factory, to increase production and lives saves tenfold.
We’re proud that we’ve had the opportunity to tell MFK’s story by helping them focus and deliver their compelling message through capital campaign collateral materials, social media, and traditional media outlets.
