Joseph S Meyers Bountiful Coordinator Bushrod Island Liberia fighting child malnutrition

Joseph S. Myers

Community Coordinator

Joseph served a mission in Nigeria from 2020-2022 and is currently a nurse assistant. He says, “I observed children, members and non-members, who needed help particularly with nutrition. I heard about Bountiful and sought help to improve and save the lives of children in Liberia.’ We are so grateful Joseph reached out and that screenings are now taking place in Liberia to help the most vulnerable population…children.

Bountiful's Community Coordinators

Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased nutritional supplements, and follow up on infant development.
