Caritas Manila, the social services and development ministry of the Archdiocese of Manila, graduated 135 children aged 3-12 last August from malnourishment through its Integrated Nutrition Program.
The children are from Barangay 649 (Baseco compound) in Navotas. They are Catholics, non-Catholic Christians and Muslims.
