The Fellowship for Organizing Endeavors, Inc. (FORGE) is conducting a six- month regular feeding program for 200 malnourished children from Sitio Tangke Panaghiusa Residents Association (SITAPRA) in Barangay Mambaling and Tarcom Upper Laguerta Homeowners Association (TULHOA) in Barangay Busay, Cebu City.
This project is made possible in partnership with Feed the Children – Philippines who provided the Vitameal packs, friends from Sacred Heart School for Boys Batch 1985 andFilinvest Sapphire Team for the rice.
Seventy percent of the 100 children identified in TULHOA, Barangay Busay ages from three to six years old. On the other hand, 60 percent of the 100 children from SITAPRA, Barangay Mambaling ages from two to six years old. This situation shows that mulnutrition cases are high among very young children.
The project is hoped to encourage families and communities on the value of proper nutrition during the formative years of a child. Thus, parents/guardians of children-beneficiaries are encouraged to provide a counterpart of a meager amount for them to have a stake in this worthwhile endeavor.
FORGE is envisioning that this project will be replicated to other urban poor communities. Hence, the organization is encouraging friends who want to help fight malnutrition among children to participate on this project.
