Non-Profit Pharmaceutical companies?

See the inspiring article about Dr. Victoria Hale.


  1. Rick Via Ministries is a non profit 501c3 organization looking for children's vitamins to take on a mission to Uganda, Africa on June 22.
    Can you help or know who we can contact?
    We are estimating needing around 150,000 tablets.

  2. Thank you for asking, Rick. I have forwarded your request to Alticor Corporation, a major and very generous supplier of the finest organic nutritional supplements, and will keep you posted.

  3. Rick,
    do you have a WRITTEN authorization from the Ugandan Ministry of Health to bring in the vitamins? In general Afrian countries see vitamines as drugs and wil charge you customs and duties. My experience is first hand with Kenya and Cameroon.

  4. This comment from Dr. Rolande Hodel:


    If you are attempting to bring vitamins into Uganda, do you have a WRITTEN authorization from the Ministry of Health of Uganda to bring it in tax and duty free? In our experience with Kenya and Cameroon, African countries see vitamins as drugs and will charge you according to that no matter if you are a non-profit or not.
