Founded in 1994, Vitamin Angels is an entrepreneurially minded, mission-driven non-profit organization that focuses on reducing mortality and illness among infants and young children by connecting them with vitamin A, as well as promoting physical and cognitive development among infants and young children by connecting them with essential multivitamins.
