About the Event
For more than a decade the Bountiful Children’s Foundation has been addressing malnutrition among Latter-day Saint children in the developing world. Beginning with one congregation in Ecuador, the work has spread to two-hundred communities in eighteen countries and on four continents and some island nations, from Madagascar to Mongolia and from Peru to the Philippines. Founded, funded, and volunteer-administered by Latter-day Saints, the Bountiful Children’s Foundation focuses on the first 1000 days of a child’s life, the most critical period for body and brain development. The foundation also addresses malnutrition among pregnant women and lactating mothers.
In April 2019 Bob Rees, co-founder and current Vice-president of the Bountiful Children’s Foundation, and his wife Gloria Rees traveled to the island nation of Madagascar to strengthen and expand the work of the foundation.
We're pleased to join with Bob and Gloria in a conversation about their experience in Madagascar, and the work of the foundation throughout the world.
Bob is the Director of Mormon Studies and professor at Graduate Theological Union.
