There are 4 broad sub-forms of undernutrition: wasting, stunting, underweight, and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. Undernutrition makes children in particular much more vulnerable to disease and death.
Below is a video of Makeni, the program recipients, and the Bountiful coordinator, Agnes. It was taken on a mobile device, so quality is poor but the message is wonderful!
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.
Agnes explains Bountiful’s work in Makeni and shares her own history.
