ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES

Tragically, due to stigmas and cultural expectations surrounding children and families, most children abandoned in the Philippines have special needs. Significant gaps in socioeconomic status has also led to widespread poverty in the more rural areas of the Philippines. Due to this cycle of poverty, 32% of infants are stunted due to poor nutrition.
