We will feed 300 severely malnourished and stunted children. Stunting of children is a direct result of inadequate nutrient intake in terms of quantity, regularity and quality. There is a need to reverse this condition since stunting would result to reduced physical and brain development. The long-term impact are adults with low economic and income opportunities thereby repeating the cycle of malnutrition, low capacity, ill-health and low economic capacity of future generations.
Many children living in remote barrios are stunted as can be observed from their physical appearance. They are children of small, marginal farmers and laborers. Farming is no longer lucrative nowadays by a combination of factors namely, soil erosion, infertile soil and extreme weather events such as long dry season and occurrence of typhoons.
We will provide regular supply of nutritious meals to severely malnourished and stunted children so that they will grow into healthy and well-rounded adults.
More vibrant communities with healthy and productive citizens.
