History of the Bountiful Children's Foundation in Colombia

In July 2014, Bob Rees (Board Member and Co-Founder), along with other experienced members of the Bountiful Children's Foundation team traveled to Colombia to screen children for malnutrition across the country. The results were sobering. According to Rees, the malnutrition rates varied "from city to city and region to region, depending on a number of factors. In Ipiales, over a third of the children screened (11 out of 27) were malnourished, whereas, in Popayan, over half (77 of 134) fell below the standards set by the World Health Organization."
