MANA is dedicated to addressing severe cases of malnutrition in children by creating and distributing ready-to-use-therapeutic-food (RUTF), a fortified peanut paste that has been carefully formulated to meet a child's basic nutritional needs. Roughly three servings of MANA a day for six weeks can save the life of a child suffering from severe acute malnutrition. NetSuite.org is thrilled to be able to support their work to ensure that MANA packets are created and distributed efficiently with a software donation of NetSuite.
