In 2016, the Drive: No Boundaries initiative began with the purpose of helping end child hunger in Haiti.
A live auction was held during an annual event hosted by Nutra Blend, a micro ingredient feed distributor in the U.S., with hundreds of agriculture industry leaders participating. The results were nothing short of incredible. Through the generosity of those participating in Drive: No Boundaries, the program was able to raise $1.4 million in its first year. This donation purchased enough treatments of Medika Mamba to save the lives of over 21,000 children in Haiti.
But Drive: No Boundaries didn’t stop there. In 2017, the program hosted an online auction with the hopes of raising $1 million. The funds this year would go towards purchasing a second mixer and packaging line for Medika Mamba. Yet again, the incredible efforts of the animal feed industry produced a total of $1.1 million for Meds & Food for Kids!
This new equipment will quadruple production, resulting in four times the number of children that can be helped. This also impacts MFK’s global efforts where they will collaborate with UNICEF Global to produce Medika Mamba and other life-saving supplements for children in need from 12 countries around the world.
