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.

A story from Rosales, Philippines

Jennifer is a single mother raising her son Jyohann after her husband left. She has heart disease but doesn’t let that stop her from caring and supporting her child.

She says, “I know I have a lot more to go through in life but I believe I can do everything to support my dear son through my intense love for him and placing the Lord at the center of our relationship.”
