Atty. Albert Muyot, chief executive officer of Save the Children Philippines said that for many Filipinos, Christmas is for children. This event gives everyone an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of children particularly those in disadvantaged communities in the Philippines.

There are around 3.3 million children in the country who are stunted and 800,000 more are malnourished. The Philippines ranks ninth among 10 countries in the world with worst cases of stunting and malnutrition of children.

Save the Children Philippines launched early this year Project NURTURE (Nutrition among Urban Poor Through Unified Response) that aims to reduce the number of deaths of children under 5-years-old in identified areas in Navotas City.

The project implements a nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive intervention focusing on the first 1,000 days of life to prevent stunting and wasting among children under 5-years-old and improve maternal nutrition, particularly among pregnant and lactating mothers.

Save the Children’s Christmas campaign “LahatDapat” calls everyone to step up and wear their #LahatDapat bandana to influence people to fulfill lifelong dreams and save lives of the poorest Filipino children.
