This project will provide highly-nutritious meals for 3 months to 200 very poor and severely malnourished children living in Lubilan, Naawan municipality, a remote mountainous village here in Mindanao in order for them to improve their health and nutrition and provide them with good chance in life.
Many children in a remote village in Naawan municipality here in the Philippines suffer from severe malnutrition due to poverty and increasingly very poor soil and poor farm productivity. Most of their parents are marginal farmers and income from the farm is never enough to feed the family.
The project will provide highly nutritious meals which will include delicacies that Filipino family enjoy. At least this will give happiness to the children and their family and improve their health and nutrition. Aside from directly providing them with food, the project will also train the mothers how to grow their own food in the backyard and we will provide vegetable seeds in the process.
Healthy children and their families will mean bright future for them and a vibrant community where they live where everyone help each other for their own improvement and welfare. This will also be a model on how self-reliant communities are developed.
