Effective Poverty Relief

Our mission at Soul Reborn is to help the helpless by giving back throughout the year to selected charities and NGO's that focus on effective poverty relief. We specifically target clean water and hunger relief projects, as well as other opportunities that impact poverty in our local community.

Breakthroughs

One of the most exciting breakthroughs in fighting hunger has been the use of peanut butter Ready to Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTFs) for treating Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) in children. These at-home nutritional supplements can save children who are on the brink of death, and bring them back to full nutritional health in as little as 6 weeks, without hospitalization or the limitations of lacking clean water that are typically required for traditional dry milk based RUTFs. PB RUTFs have seen such incredible success in the field, we specifically choose charities that use them.

  • About Charity

    Project Peanut Butter serves hundreds of thousands of malnourished children. The strategy is to feed PB RUTFs to children, where 95% recover, compared to only 25%-40% with traditional treatments.

    One unique aspect to the organization's work is that the Chiponde is produced within the local country where it is served, using as many local ingredients as possible, helping sustain the local economy.

  • About Charity

    Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.

    By giving families a hand-up, not just a handout, we empower them to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity, but our approach is more than that. By bringing communities together and linking them with markets in their area, we help bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty.

    Our animals don't just provide project partners with a reliable source of food, but also a reliable source of income. Extra agricultural products, such as milk from cows or goats, honey from bees or eggs from chickens, can be both shared within the community and sold at market. This new income, coupled with the training in sustainable practices that our partners receive, allows partners to clothe their families, provide them with medical care and send their children to school.

  • About Charity

    Deep Springs' mission is to improve life in developing countries by identifying and encouraging the use of affordable water purification systems, teaching the importance of proper household water treatment, and creating new business opportunities for local people.

    The Deep Springs solution is a simple locally produced 5 gallon bucket with lid and tap and locally produced liquid chlorine product called Gadyen Dlo (“water guardian” in Haitian Creole). With just a capful of this product, a family can purify water from any source, and guarantee that it is clean and safe in the cup (not just in the well or spring).

    Using a simple and affordable chlorine system, we empower individuals to provide safe water to their communities as a sustainable business.
