(KSL News) -- While unrest continues in Iraq, one Utah charity is working to restore health to the Iraqi people.

This morning, members of the Salt Lake City-based Globous Relief Fund loaded a truck full of vitamins to be shipped to humanitarian programs in Basra, Iraq.

The shipment will provide a one month supply of vitamins for thousands of adults and nearly 44-thousand children.

Humanitarian workers in Iraq say the lack of fresh and vitamin-enriched foods are the cause of health problems in the war-torn nation.
