Fact from the World Health Organization:
Low height-for-age is known as stunting. It is the result of chronic or recurrent undernutrition, usually associated with poor socioeconomic conditions, poor maternal health and nutrition, frequent illness, and/or inappropriate infant and young child feeding and care in early life. Stunting holds children back from reaching their physical and cognitive potential.
Eleonor was born October 14, 1974 at Sibangan, Mt. Province. Mt. Province is 83% mountainous while 17% make up hills and level ground. We can find here the famous hanging coffins displayed in high cliffs. Despite living in a beautiful place, she decided to move to Kalibo, Aklan to be with her eternal companion Ricarto. Eleonor has been volunteering with Bountiful Children since 2014. In spite of being a busy mom of five adorable children, she still manages to serve as the coordinator of the Kalibo Program. She loves serving, especially the children.
Bountiful's Community Coordinators
