Nancy Paco Livano
My name is Nancy Paco Livano. I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I served a mission in the Peru Lima South Mission. I finished studying Technical Nursing. I have worked in other foundations in health, education and micro-enterprises. I worked for the state as a trainer on basic sanitation and malnutrition issues. I hope to get married some day.
I feel very happy to be part of Bountiful Children. I have been with them for 8 years. I love the love of all the donors in the USA. I always wanted to see the USA Temple and meet the Prophet. Maybe one day or in the millennium I will have that opportunity. I like to help children although I don’t have children, but I can help them through Bountiful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are who the Book of Mormon speaks of you as being a blessing to us Lamanites.
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.
