Army launched Feeding Program in ComVal

“Our priorities are our children of today, the future of a healthy populace”,
1001st Infantry Brigade Commander Col. Roberto D. Domines said in a feeding
program launched by army troops in Compostela Valley Province yesterday

The 10th Infantry Division in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Metro
Davao and Aztropex Inc. instigated its three-month feeding program to more than
300 children in different barangays of Mawab at Mawab Municipal Gym.

With the theme “It’s time to feed the starving children”, the said program
pursued with a common belief that every child has a right to a nutritious food and
keeps them away from malnutrition.

Malnutrition is one of the largest social illnesses that confront our country.
It is not solely caused by a single physical factor but a multiplicity of factors.
Water, sanitation, economic opportunity, clear cut population control policy, lack
of adequate housing and myriad of basic needs are out of reach to a huge
number of our population. We are confronted with these basic amenities due to
lack of focus on clear cut development programs delving mostly on remedial

And this is what Kiwanis wants to change.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to change the

world, one child, and one community at a time. A worldwide service organization
designed for individuals who want to improve their communities through personal
involvement in leadership and service to others.

The district-wide initiated program of the Philippines South District of

Kiwanis International, and the Balay Ni San Jose – Kiwanis Kids Feeding

organizational ground works while networking with volunteers, NGOs, LGU and
PO’s to implement a feasible approach to feed malnourished kids.
