A List of Wishes to make mum smile
If you're stumped for pressie ideas this Mother's Day, Save the Children can save you the worry.
Choose a week's supply of Plumpy'nut® from Save the Children's Wish List and you and your mum will be helping to improve the lives of some of the world's most vulnerable children.
Plumpy'nut® is a high-protein, high-energy paste specially developed for severely malnourished children.
It's great because it comes fully prepared and can be eaten directly from its foil wrapper. There is no risk of it being contaminated by dirty water and it needs no preparation or special supervision. It can be distributed at home rather than at specialist feeding stations – so mums and babies living in remote areas don't have to walk miles to get it. It's sweet taste mean children love it.
A week's supply of Plumpy'nut® costs just $18. For a severely malnourished child a week's supply can be crucial – and could mean the difference between life and death.
Plumpy'nut® is just one in a range of Wish List gifts that can help change a child's life.
Save the Children's Wish List has heaps of other cool gift ideas, including a goat (parents can enrich their children's diet with its milk), toys for a toy library (to help children develop concentration, creativity and speech skills), teacher training or a yak (to provide milk and wool). Invest in any one of these – and you and your mum will be helping those mums and children who need it most.
Donate the gift of your choice and your mum will receive a personalised card and a Wish Certificate. She'll love you for it.
