Rise Above Foundation Distributes Milk Donated by Nestle Philippines

In the Philippines, health issues and malnutrition are some of the biggest concerns among children. There are around 12 million Filipino children who are suffering from chronic malnutrition.

This is mainly because of poverty. Many Filipino children don’t get the right nutrients as their parents can hardly afford a meal for them. And even a glass of milk is a luxury for these kids.

This is why we are so thankful to organizations and individuals who help alleviate this problem.

The Rise Above team is getting ready to bring the milk to our centers.

Recently, we were able to take part in an initiative led by Nestle Philippines and the Rotary Club of Cebu.

A few months ago, Nestle contacted Stephen Castillo of the Rotary Club. They wanted to donate thousands of liters of milk for needy children.

Stephen Castillo is a good friend and has given support for our dental missions. Seeing the opportunity to channel the milk from Nestle to needy areas, he requested our help as well as from many others.  As soon as the milk was delivered to his warehouse, he called for a meeting to coordinate with Rise Above. The milk given to us was distributed within the next few days.

We delivered around 1,780 liters of milk to two elementary schools in North of Cebu. We also gave it to children who come every day at our Children’s Library and the Family Care Center.

Teachers and students alike were very thankful to Nestle Philippines for their milk donation.

This means a lot to these children. A glass of milk is not something that they can have every day but it is a need. We believe that this will go a long way. And we hope that there will be more of these projects in the future.

To Nestle Philippines and Rotary Club of Cebu, thank you so much. We are happy to be a part of making a difference for the children’s health and nutrition.
                                                         

                                                                     

Together we can make a difference!
