Baxter employees help improve health and nutrition of Yi children in Liangshan



As part of Baxter China’s annual Making a Meaningful Difference Month initiative, which encourages employees to showcase their commitment to engaging in the communities where they live and work, 12 Baxter employees recently visited Naituo village in Liangshan Yi Autonomous Regions, located in the high altitude mountains in the southern extremity of Sichuan Province in southwest China, to provide health and nutrition education for more than 200 Yi – an ethnic minority group in China – children.

Baxter employees have been working with Humana People to People, an organisation that helps impoverished countries on their health, education and sustainable rural livelihood development – to serve community health needs since 2011.

This year, Baxter and the Baxter International Foundation provided more than $89,000 to help launch the Liangshan Yi-minority Children Community Health Project.

The initiative works to improve over 200 local Yi children’s nutritional status, and heighten communities’ awareness of health, nutrition and hygiene.
