Infant Feeding Program

The Tapulanga Foundation started a new program last October 2007 called the Infant Feeding Program. As the name suggests, we provide FREE formula milk to farm children ages 4 months old to 2 years old. Our first beneficiaries are the following: Ruby Aberia, Crisna Macahilig, Richard Buensuceso, Loreto Ferreras III, Cedric Macahilig, Geop Antolo and Nasel Montillano. Mothers (who can) still breastfeed and we just provide additional milk. The foundation noticed most of the kids coming from the farm did poorly in school. Adequate milk during the first two years of a child may be a factor in one's intellectual capacity.
For the holidays, the foundation shared some used baby clothes and toys to these 7 babies.
