Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Malnutrition seriously limits the physical and mental development of children. Nearly half of deaths to children under age 5 are due to malnutrition. Bountiful Children's Foundation provides effective treatment for malnourished children in low resource countries. Treatment of malnutrition is most critical in the first 1000 days of life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to eliminate malnutrition and promote cognitive development in children under 5 years of age.

1. We assess nutritional status of children using height and weight according to WHO standards.
2. We provide therapeutic food for disadvantaged pregnant and lactating mothers, children up to 3 who are malnourished, and acutely malnourished children under age 5.
3. We teach health lessons to families.
4 We monitor the progress of children in our program.

We utilize the facilities of local churches where possible to provide a safe, comfortable and clean environment to assess children, distribute supplements and teach classes. We provide a small stipend for volunteers from these churches to conduct assessments, distribute supplements and teach health lessons. We purchase the best affordable supplements available in each country where we work to give to the mothers and children. By leveraging free access to facilities, local volunteers, and local supplements, we can provide effective treatment for around $8/month for each child.

In 2021, we screened over 16,000 children, distributed over 100,000 supplements, and offered monthly health lessons. 60-90% of children showed improvement depending on the type of malnutrition they experienced.
We will continue to assess the progress of children in the program.
