We are delighted that Phillip is able to join our Virtual Advisory Board and make public his support for a trial of the ColaLife idea.
About ColaLife, Phillip says:
Simon’s idea of using the distribution network of Coca-Cola to deliver much needed rehydration packs to babies is a great example of how the power of a multinational company can be harnessed to provide much needed care for vulnerable human beings. As a practising doctor, I am very pleased to associate myself with a development programme for sub-Saharan Africa that is both effective and sustainable. ColaLife is an inspiring idea that deserves much support.
