According to the World Health Organization (WHO), micronutrients are essential for good health, when lacking proper amounts, especially during pregnancy, serious health complications result. 1/3 of deaths in children ages five and under is caused by malnutrition. "This is a serious issue we are committed to addressing in Peru, where 34.8% of Peruvians live below the poverty line and maternal mortality is 98 deaths per every 100,000 births, the majority of which are due to micronutrient deficiency," said Gaillard.

In partnerships with the Peruvian Ministry of Health, Caritas-Lima and Vitamin Angels, the BRA will organize, train and dispatch 150 Community Health Promoters to distribute multivitamins, Vitamin A and antiworm medicines on a quarterly basis for two years to schools, medical clinics, and community centers that serve children and women. "Additionally, BRA's Health Promoters will educate entire communities about health crises and prevention techniques, including hygiene, prenatal care, waterborne diseases, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS," added Gaillard.

Over the course of two years, the Batey Relief Alliance will reach and improve the health and lives of 2,000 children and 450 pregnant and nursing women.
