On 2st March 2014, Phillips Healthcare Services Limited with the full backing of the Phillips Group of Companies embarked on the fulfilling task of donating 300 packs to Mix-Me food fortification powder equally to Thomas Barnados and the New Life Children’s home. The Mix me was bought using donations generously contributed from staff and well wishers within the Group of Companies and organized and distributed by a team from Phillips Healthcare Services Limited led by Dr Grace Waiharo.
Mix me is a multi nutrient powder that is aimed at promoting food fortification at a personal level at an affordable cost. It contains 15 varieties of vitamins and 2 minerals and ideally served mixed into the home made food. Mix me is a product distributed in Kenya through Phillips Healthcare Services Limited and it is envisioned to improve nutritional uptake for children between the ages of six months and two years.
Representatives of the facilities and recepients of the donations were welcoming and were very appreciative of the kind gesture. We hope for may more such opportunities where we can give back to the society.
