Vitamin Angels invites applications from eligible organisations for its Micronutrients Programme for pregnant women in South Africa, an opportunity to receive a donation of multiple micronutrient supplements for pregnancy. 

Vitamin Angels helps at-risk populations in need – specifically pregnant women, – gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. This is accomplished by providing annual, renewable micronutrient grants to qualified non-governmental or community-based organisations – our Field Partners – who want to incorporate micronutrient distribution into their existing services. 

Vitamin Angels micronutrient grants are in-kind donations only; no cash is provided. 
 
The organisation provides:

  • Multivitamins for pregnant women to support foetal growth and thereby reduce neonatal and infant mortality
