We are pediatricians, professors, business people, researchers, marketers, trades people, farmers, mothers, fathers. We are Latter-Day Saints anxiously engaged in a good cause—offering our time and talents to end malnutrition in the first 1000 days of a child's life. In the short run this will save some lives and alleviate a great deal of suffering. In the long run it will give these children a much better chance to become self reliant adults and bless generations to come.
The Liahona Children's Nutrition and Education Foundation (LCF) is a grass-roots organization dedicated to nurturing the potential of children to lead healthy and productive lives. We do this by providing nutritional supplements to malnourished and underweight LDS children and their friends for the first 1000 days of their lives. We also promote sustained breastfeeding for infants and young children and provide education in hygienic and healthy food preparation. In areas where funds permit, LCF also provides small scholarships to elementary students to enable them to attend local school programs. We currently have programs in operation in Africa, Latin America, the South Pacific, the Philippines, and Asia.
We hope you will join us in saving lives, alleviating suffering, and fostering self-reliance for LDS infants and their friends who live in desperate circumstances.
