Children's First 1000 Days Coalition Launched for War Against Malnutrition

RA 11148 "Kalusugan at Nutrisyon ng Magnanay Act," aims to address malnutrition during children's first one thousand days of life.

In line with this, the Children's First One Thousand Days Coalition (CFDC) was formed between the Rotary International, Lions Club International, Kiwanis International, Junior Chamber International, The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines, The Fraternal Order of Eagles- Philippine Eagles, Knights of Columbus, Knights of Rizal, Save the Children Philippines, World Vision Philippines, Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals, Philippine League of Government and Private Midwives, and Crusade Against Violence. 

Leaders and members from these organizations attended the launch last January 13, 2024 at The Manila Hotel. Under the coalition, they will provide an operations manual and training programs on how it will help the government's war against malnutrition. 

The coalition considers the operations manual and training program as a key development as it clearly illustrates how the NGOs and government can collaborate in stomping out malnutrition during the children's one thousand days of life, a huge problem that causes poor school performance, low intelligence quotient, stunting, sickness, and low work productivity. The manual functions as a comprehensive, step-by-step guide on the NGOs adoption of barangays aimed at addressing malnutrition, extending its scope to a national level with a vision for fostering a healthier future for Filipino children. 

"With our battle cry for a 'brighter, stronger, taller' Filipino children, let us unite to uplift the vulnerable and intensify nutrition efforts for a new generation of Filipinos," said Atty. Joey Lina.

The milestone event promises to be a platform for collaboration and knowledge-sharing among key stakeholders committed to ensuring the well-being of children during their critical first 1000 days of life. 

The Greatest Love of All

The coalition is hosting a pre-Valentine dinner concert entitled- The Greatest Love of All, on February 9, 2024 at the Tent City, The Manila Hotel.
