It gives me great pleasure to address the readers of the SIGHT AND LIFE Newsletter once more on behalf of DSM. SIGHT AND LIFE has been integrated into DSM for over a year now, and its readership comprises many DSM employees as well as scientists, health professionals, field workers, academics and numerous others with an interest in the relationship between nutrition and health. We are all proud to have a humanitarian initiative of this caliber within DSM, where DSM Nutritional Products is its natural home. The process of assuming responsibility for SIGHT AND LIFE is part of a wider undertaking to integrate DSM Nutritional Products fully into the family of DSM. This of course takes a certain time. There can be no doubt, however, as to DSM’s commitment to this significant initiative. Indeed, recent events have presented us with a (tragic) opportunity to demonstrate our active support for SIGHT AND LIFE. Through SIGHT AND LIFE, DSM Nutritional Products will be helping many organizations to provide support to the survivors of the Tsunami Disaster in Southeast Asia. Special grants have been donated to the World Food Program as well as many other organizations which have approached SIGHT AND LIFE for help at the local level. These include Helen Keller International, Micronutrient Initiative, Vitamin Angel Alliance as well as local NGOs in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu in India. SIGHT AND LIFE will continue, as usual, to provide assistance in those areas that represent our core competencies. Our intention is to help secure the nutritional situation of children and other victims of the disaster. We are integrating our own input into the efforts of other organizations with the aim of supporting all who are making such valuable contributions in areas affected by this terrible catastrophe.
For all devoted to nutrition.
