MANA Nutrition / Partners

Operation Smile

One of Mana’s longest serving partners is Operation Smile in Virginia Beach Virginia. OP Smile is the global leader in corrective surgeries for children with cleft lips and pallets. In order to perform these operations, a nutrition team goes in advance to make sure that children are able to undergo and recover from the taxing surgery. The operation Smile team is in constant need of RUTF to make sure their surgical candidates are ready to go when their surgical volunteer teams arrive in the country.

World Vision

World Vision is an NGO that is a Federation. That means that there is a World Vision USA, Canada, UK, etc. The federation’s nutritional center of excellence, however, is located just outside of Toronto Canada in Mississauga. We have been partnering with them for nearly a decade as their sole provider of donated RUTF. If you donate to the World Vision RUTF you join with fellow Canada Partner Food for Famine Society in Langley BC to fill more than 20 containers. This page follows the latest container that is slated to go out via that partnership.

Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre – Steve and Jodi Swanson –

When Steve Swanson graduated from Harvard Medical school few of his fellow graduates opted to take their skills to rural Tanzania. However, as a part time faculty member at the Univ of Minnesota, he does just that, spending the majority of each year serving in Tanzania. Dr Swanson contacted Mana 8 years ago and since then we have been partnering with them to get them RUTF when their supplies dwindle. It’s not easy to get it there and it’s not very cheap or efficient. Yet when we do it has a huge impact. Check out their work here: https://www.tanzanianchildren.com/
