Lions and LCIF are Feeding Hungry Children in the Philippines

According to the World Food Programme, poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year. With funding support from Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), the Manila Amity Lions Club is operating a six-month supplemental feeding program to reduce hunger in some of the poorest areas in the Philippines.

Local Lions hope that these weekly meals will help to improve the health of undernourished children. Each meal is a healthy balance of proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins to support physical and mental growth. Children enrolled in the feeding program even get meals to take home.

    Many of the health problems especially on poor children and young adults that we, LIONS try to address could be attributed to malnutrition and constant exposure to hunger as they are growing up. If we work together, we could help them access their right to good food and proper nutrition.
