UN reports indicate that about one-third of kids under five in Myanmar are stunted in their growth due to malnutrition. The root of this – inadequate food, poor hygiene, lack of access to safe water, and limited healthcare services.
As a result, these kids have a harder time fighting off even the simplest illnesses and healing from the bug bites and scrapes that are such a common part of childhood.
Earlier this month, we partnered with the Empower International team in SE Asia to provide essential vitamins and medicine to 197 kids in Myanmar to help boost their immune systems and overall health. Thank you so much for your Purpose Coffee purchases that helped fund this partnership!
We look forward to continuing and expanding our work with these kids as we join their caretakers in efforts toward achieving health and wellness.
