MDF Holds Kamustahan with KSM Supplementary Feeding Program BNS
Muntinlupa Development Foundation (MDF) conducted a Kamustahan session with its Barangay Nutrition Scholars (BNS) who voluntarily handle the foundation’s Kalusugan sa Muntinlupa (KSM) Feeding Program. This was held last January 09 at MDF Office.
The KSM annual report was also discussed by the BNS assigned on each feeding site. The liquidation of funds was also done.
The foundation has five feeding sites in Muntinlupa City. These are located at Sikatville, Barangay Tunasan; Southville 3, Barangay Poblacion; Santos Compound, Barangay Putatan; Joaquin Compound, Barangay Alabang; and Bagong Silang, Barangay Sucat.
The BNS, in coordination with the City Health Office (CHO) of Muntinlupa, are very diligent not only in looking after the feeding program but also in inculcating spiritual and values formation among the children under KSM. The BNS also conducts regular Operation Timbang and other health services from the CHO.
KSM has been funded by the American Women’s Club of the Philippines (AWCP) for the last 17 years. This program aims to improve the nutritional status of children with underweight or severely underweight degrees of malnutrition to normalcy. Children under the feeding program are fed with nutritious meals thrice a week.
