Helen Keller Intl is pleased to announce that we have been rated a “Top Charity” by GiveWell for the fourth year in a row for our lifesaving work to deliver vitamin A supplements to infants and children around the world.
GiveWell is an independent, nonprofit organization that helps donors decide where to give each year by conducting extensive, in-depth research and reviewing charities for their evidence of effectiveness, transparency, cost effectiveness, and need for funding.
“We at Helen Keller are especially honored because GiveWell only awards ‘Top Charity’ to organizations with high-impact, cost-effective interventions—backed by evidence and analysis,” noted Helen Keller’s David Doledec, Regional Vitamin A Manager for Africa.
Helen Keller is one of only nine charities to achieve this recognition. GiveWell identified our vitamin A supplementation efforts as an opportunity for donors to save or improve the most lives per dollar.
“Helen Keller is privileged to deliver lifesaving, immune-building vitamin A to babies and children in some of the most vulnerable areas in our world. In these times, with risks to health so high, our world needs every one of us to help now,” said Kathy Spahn, Helen Keller’s Chief Executive.
