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.
Fanny is from Sagay City, Negros Occidental. Legend has it that Sagay derived its name from the semi-spherical shell called "sigay" found abundantly in the town’s many islets and shores. Fanny is married to Jose Bustamante. She has been working as a volunteer for Bountiful Children since 2015.
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.
