Children’s Mission Philippines
In 2022, BioGaia donated SEK 500,000 to the Children’s Mission Philippines (CMP) to finance efforts related to health and nutrition, education and community development as well as humanitarian aid.
As a result of the pandemic, the Philippines have experienced particularly difficult times in recent years. Among other things, the support has been used to combat malnutrition in children under the age of six, conduct medical checks, conduct care visits aimed at supporting children’s health, provide pre-postnatal care for mothers, and contribute to maternal and child health care in particularly poor areas of the country. The organisation also provides basic education to poor children, and, during 2021 and 2022, it provided food and supplies to families affected by Typhoon Odette. Additionally, the organisation also runs schools and orphanages and offers welfare programs to poor women and their families.
