The mission of Vitamin Angel Alliance (VAA, a not-for-profit corporation) is to provide basic nutrition to people in need. Vitamin Angel Alliance focuses on supplementation. This can cure or prevent malnutrition-based diseases and improve the health and life experience of tens of millions of individuals. A World Health organization report issued in 2002 identified the ten leading health risks responsible for most deaths in the world. Lack of food ranked above all others including AIDS, cancer and heart disease. People are starving to death. Nearly one quarter of all humanity – 1.4 billion people – live in absolute poverty with incomes of less than a dollar a day. UNICEF reports that one in three, or two billion people, do not receive adequate amounts of
vitamins and minerals. Millions of children will never reach their structural or intellectual potential. Malnutrition threatens both the development of affected individuals and the progress of many developing countries.
