Every day, 95 children in the Philippines die from malnutrition. Twenty-seven out of 1,000 Filipino children do not get past their fifth birthday. A third of Filipino children are stunted, or short for their age. Stunting after 2 years of age can be permanent, irreversible and even fatal (https://www.unicef.org › philippines › child-survival).
Dr. Cristie Deyro, under the auspices of Bountiful Children’s Foundation, has networked with health centers and local churches to provide health supplements and nutritional education to thousands of children. COVID restrictions have made it difficult to reach children in the communities where she works, but we are making heroic efforts to reach them. We need your help to:
1. Maintain sanitation when working with children (alcohol)
2. Improve communication (broader band width on cell phones)
3. Improve accuracy (digital scales)
4. Outreach to more children
