"Guilders Without Borders" is the Guild's outreach project to distribute multi-vitamins and assistance
to vulnerablechildren and prenatal vitamins to women in Uganda.
According to the World Food Programme, hunger and malnutrition are still the number one risks to health
worldwide. And every six seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes (source: FAO).
198,000 children die from lack of Vitamin A according to USAID. The most common cause of blindness in developing countries
is vitamin A deficiency (VAD).
Vitamins are sent to our partner the St. Nicholas Uganda Children's Fund for distribution
to children in the area. The St. Nicholas Fund provides full educational support and health care for orphans and vulnerable
children in Uganda.
when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot
repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.Luke 14: 13-14
