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.

 Blanca Solorzano

Community Coordinator

My name is Blanca Solorzano Mercado. I have 3 beautiful daughters, 27, 24 and 21 years old. The oldest is a returned missionary. Thanks to her, I am a coordinator with the Foundation. She knows my charisma towards children, and she knows that this beautiful service is an honor since it is the most beautiful part. I’m glad I can contribute by bringing the children a little help so that they grow healthy and strong. I wish I could give them more. In the region where I live there are too many children who are waiting for help to survive. The cute faces are the best reward we can have when visiting them.

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 supplements, and follow up on infant development.
