Thanks are due to New Internationalist magazine and their staff who first drewattention to the subject and encouraged War on Want to investigate further.Particularly to Hugh
Geach
who did the initial work for New Internationalist andmade his material available to us,Thanks also to the doctors and professionals in other fields who gave theirtime and advice, especially to Dr. David Morley of the Tropical Child HealthUnit at London University’s institute of Child Health, who made many helpfulsuggestions as well as reading the draft of this report.Certain of the companies involved have also been very patient in explainingtheir
view
of the situation.In particular, Dr. H.
Muller
and Mr. G.
Fookes
of
Nestles 
Dietetics Division gave me a great deal of their time, as did Mr.
l.
Barter of Unigate’s international Division.These gentlemen are policy makersin their organisations and where quotations are attributed simply to Nestles orCow and Gate they are from interviews with them.War on Want is one of many Third World charities indebted to certain of themilk companies for donations of infant foods and other products for relief
pro-
grammes.
In
disasters and other
abnormal 
situations, these products can beextremely useful.
We
may be accused of “biting the hand that feeds” with thisreport, but our responsibility lies with the communities in which we work.
