Save the Children’s #LahatSanta Campaign

“In the Philippines, 1 in 3 children suffers from stunted growth due to hunger and malnutrition, and this means that they won’t be able to reach their full potential. Poor families struggle to feed their children and it’s estimated that 1.5 million Filipino children go to sleep hungry every night, not having eaten a thing all day,” ~Dr. Amado Parawan, Save the Children’s Health and Nutrition Advisor
