In Myanmar, 25.6% of the population lives below the national poverty line. In 2015, 40 out of every 1000 babies born in Myanmar dies before their first birthday. With the support from New Creation Church (Singapore), the “Feeding Program” was established to provide healthy nutritious food to slum children, helping parents/carers caring for them. There are 100 children able to have a healthy meal from Monday to Friday. Because of this program, children are able to receive better nutrition and attend school . The smiles on the children’s face says it all.
