Program 1

Blessing

The Blessing program was designed to provide real-food nutritional support to the world's most malnourished children.  Getting sufficient nutrients in the first few years of life is critical for proper childhood development. Up to one half of all childhood deaths in the world are related to malnutrition.

 

95% of vitamins and mineral supplements are synthetically made.  These supplements are typically made from coal tar or petroleum, which make them an inexpensive source for supplementation, but do not give them the solubility of minerals found in food.

 

What makes MannaRelief unique in our efforts to help fight against malnutrition is that organizations enrolled in our Blessing program are supplied with real-food nutritional support that helps provide children with their daily essential nutrients.  Real-food nutritional support is made with real fruits and vegetables, making it more soluble for the body to absorb.

 

The mission of MannaRelief has already impacted thousands of children's lives across the globe. Since 1999 we have sent more than 78 million servings of real-food nutritional support to undernourished children in over 80 countries. Some of those countries include: Mexico, North Korea, Canada, Ecuador, Romania, Japan, the Philippines, Rwanda, Guatemala and the United States.

 

Finding decent edible food for all three meals of the day for dozens of children at a time is hard enough.  Making those meals nutritious and healthy for the human body is an even more challenging task.  Not anymore.  With real-food nutritional support, caregivers can now provide children with the nutrient support their bodies require.

Hope

The MannaRelief Hope program was designed to provide the best integrative health support to children under the age of 19 who are currently under a doctor's care.

 

An integrative approach to health care seeks to combine the best conventional medical practices with the best complimentary strategies to produce the most tangible patient benefits.  It does serve as a replacement or alternative to standard care of treatment, but works synergistically to provide additional benefits to the patient. Standard of care medical practices are designed to treat or manage specific disease conditions.  For example, many pharmaceutical drugs alter physiological functions or inhibit biochemical pathways in the body to address disease conditions. Nutritional supplements, on the other hand, are designed to support the body's normal functions for repair and the regeneration of healthy cells.

 

At the core of our strategy for integrative health are the discovery and development of a new category of nutrients, called glyconutrients.  Glyconutrients provide a unique set of nutritional building blocks for supporting the body's normal recovery processes.  Research has shown that glyconutrients can support the various functions of the immune system that are necessary to help achieve best patient outcomes.

 

During the six month program each child receives three shipments, one shipment every two months, which includes a 60 day supply of nutritional support.  All nutritional products are shipped directly to the child's address and may only be consumed by the child enrolled in the Hope program.

 

The Hope program works hand-in-hand with sponsors in providing nutritional products to children in need.  This program runs for a six-month period.  After the first six months, sponsors may renew their participation in the program.

 

Sponsorship can come from many different sources such as parents, family, friends, coworkers, churches, schools, local businesses and fundraising efforts.  Donations can be made by check, credit card or electronic bank withdrawal.  We offer auto-renewal for those sponsoring by credit card or electronic bank withdrawal.  Generally, donations for sponsorship are tax deductible.

 

More than 9,000 children have participated in the Hope program. To learn more, visit us at www.mannarelief.org(http://www.mannarelief.org/) .
