RCBM holds outreach project at Ramon Magsaysay Health Center

Children should grow up to achieve their full potential, but for many Filipino children, this is not their reality. Underfed and malnourished, millions of Filipino children go to school with empty stomachs – a barrier to their healthy development in their growing up years.

In Metro Manila, Rotary Club of Bagumbayan Manila (RCBM) has been waging a fight against hunger and malnutrition, and their efforts have been paying off in recent years. From consistently ranking among the top areas in the capital region with high rates of malnutrition, RCBM has drastically cut its high rate of children who are stunted, severely wasted, or severely underweight. The goal is to make sure that malnourished children are eating well, so that they grow up to be responsible and productive members of the society. One action being taken is the daily feeding program, an initiative that also brings in local businesses and the residents themselves in a community intervention effort.
