In addition to an on-going partnership that provides Timmy Global Health with hydration solutions, Hydralyte’s most recent financial donation could help 400 children suffering from chronic malnutrition
CAMBRIDGE, MA (July 31, 2018) – Hydralyte, a clinically formulated oral rehydration solution (ORS), has expanded support for Timmy Global Health through a recent financial donation. The donated funding is gifted in addition to Hydralyte’s 5-year partnership with Timmy Global Health that supports health and hydration needs in the developing world with donated Hydralyte products.
Hydralyte’s donation will be able to treat 400 children with chronic malnutrition through the Timmy Global Health organization. The donation could alternatively be used to provide a year’s supply of prenatal vitamins for 200 women or it could be allocated to help protect up to 20,000 children against intestinal parasites.
“Our work at 10 community-based project sites in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Nigeria requires hundreds of resources, financial and otherwise,” said Lucy Knowles, Development and Marketing Coordinator, Timmy Global Health. “Donations like Hydralyte’s help make our mission of expanding global access to quality healthcare possible.”
