Elimination diets don’t exactly sound like the most fun thing in the world, but if you’re struggling with digestive issues, they can change your life. How do you get to the root of an issue if you can never pinpoint the cause? You don’t. That’s why millions of people live with illness unnecessarily every day.

Ways to Help Children In Venezuela, Because They Are Dying Of Malnutrition

Our mission is to help all children of this world live happier lives and have a bright future, regardless of where they were born and the circumstances they were forced to live during their childhood. And even though we are a small organization, we put the main focus on taking action right now. Impacting the life of even a single child in need, it’s worth the effort.

But, because nowadays, it is harder and harder for non-for-profit organizations to fund their activities, we have decided to create a for-profit business with the objective of providing financial stability to the members of our team, by doing something that matters.

Today I wanted to share some of the faces of the children we are helping, in Caracas, Venezuela. And a little more about the mission of this project.
