Few tourists are aware that Bali has a staggering poverty rate and malnutrition is rampant in some of the more remote communities. Nationwide 50% of the country’s 260 million people live on $2 or less a day. More than 28% of children are underweight; 44% are facing stunted growth.
A malnourished child with delayed development is at greater risk of illness and disease throughout its lifetime. Poor nutrition and inadequate vitamin, protein and micro nutrient intake in children result in poor brain development, weak muscle growth and impaired coordination. This affects a child’s mental, physical, emotional and social health and is the leading cause of degenerative disease in adulthood.
Many of our families are unable to afford even the most basic food necessities and are severely malnourished.
We desperately need sponsors to provide a basic food parcel to these families monthly. Nobody should endure hunger.
