“So we started these intervention programs, and eventually we expanded into East Africa, we were in seven countries, reached about 45 million people of permanent sustainable programs to fortify food in parts of the country, just like we have food fortified here, so when you go buy a loaf of bread, it’s got iron and so forth in it. We wanted to bring those same opportunities to people in East Africa and Central America.” – David Dodson
