Child Stunting: 149.2 million
Stunting is the devastating result of poor nutrition in-utero and early childhood. Children suffering from stunting may never attain their full possible height and their brains may never develop to their full cognitive potential.
These children begin their lives at a marked disadvantage: they face learning difficulties in school,
earn less as adults, and face barriers to participation in their communities.
Globally, 149.2 million children under 5 suffered from stunting in 2020.

Nilsa Ramona Servin
I was born in Ita, Paraguay on January 24. I currently live in Encarnacion, Paraguay. I am married and have 1 daughter and 4 sons whom I love with all my strength. I am an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I am about to undertake something in the manufacture of sports clothing. I am satisfied with the life that I have lived. My heavenly father has given me the opportunity to be part of his people. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and is my greatest fortune. It is priceless. Only two things are of greater importance: my God and my Savior. Nothing is more important to me in this life. I love my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ!
