Vita-Tech International, Inc. has donated 3 1/2 tons of fresh-dated multi-vitamin tablets to under-served populations in Guinea, West Africa. “Nutritional empowerment is one of the most effective ways to give people hope for a better future,” said company president Thomas T. Tierney. “We want to make a difference, and we are proud to act on our obligation to look after one another on the planet,” he said. Vita-Tech made a similar donation last year.
The Lyceum Group, a non-governmental organization in West Africa, assisted by the University of California—Irvine’s Africa Initiative, will distribute the products. The Lyceum Group is building a clinic and home for young people with polio, as well as implementing programs for sanitation, clean potable water, HIV/AIDS mitigation, malaria prevention and programs for women and children.
