Valencia-based Lief Labs, a premier formulation and product development innovator and manufacturer of dietary supplements, is pleased to announce its commitment to support Vitamin Angels’ Healthy Futures Initiative, a unified effort to address the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable communities in the U.S. and around the world.

For communities that already lack access to essential health and nutrition services, the impact of COVID-19 can be devastating. With health systems overwhelmed and food systems being disrupted, families who were already nutritionally vulnerable prior to the health crisis, are at an even greater risk for malnutrition now.

“Due to the impact of this global health crisis, Lief Labs’ sponsorship and commitment to support the important efforts of Vitamin Angels is even more critical,” said Adel Villalobos, CEO & founder of Lief. “We are extremely proud to join Vitamin Angels’ Healthy Futures Initiative to help ensure that vulnerable populations heavily impacted by COVID-19 receive the essential nutrients they need to build the foundation for a healthy future.”

The Healthy Futures Initiative is working to raise $500,000 to address the increased global demand for health services around the world caused by COVID-19. Specifically, Vitamin Angels will use the funds to:

– Scale-up Vitamin Angels’ prenatal multiple micronutrient program to further combat high food insecure communities and the increased risk of malnutrition for vulnerable pregnant women.

– Scale-up Vitamin Angels’ vitamin A program to fill gaps in coverage caused by disrupted systems, which can leave children vulnerable to illness and infection.

– Expand training materials and digital tools to train more service providers that can support overwhelmed health systems.

“Our work ensuring that nutritionally vulnerable populations receive access to the essential nutrients they need has never been more important than right now,” said Howard Schiffer, founder and president of Vitamin Angels. “Thank you, Lief Labs for your generous commitment to the health and well-being of the most vulnerable pregnant women and children among us. Through your support, our work will continue, and together we will help mitigate the devastating effects of COVID-19 and make this world a healthier place.”
