Founded in 2004, and funded by the Kirk family, Kirk Humanitarian has provided over five million individuals with multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) including a 180-day course of prenatal vitamins.
In doing so, we estimate that we have:
Prevented 150,198 cases of maternal anemia
Prevented 111,963 cases of low birthweight babies
Saved 17,156 child lives
The benefits of prenatal vitamins extend beyond saving lives and preventing poor health outcomes.
Overall, these children will go on to earn $83 million more over their lifetimes
Every dollar Kirk has invested will return $13 in improved economic productivity and averted death
