SurfAid’s Destination Rote Needs You

by The Editors on May 26, 2022

After more than two decades of providing a hand up to families in remote surf communities, SurfAid is proud to launch a new three-year program to improve the nutrition status of children living on the remote surf island of Rote. The project, Destination Rote, is a three year plan that aims to improve the nutrition status of these children.

Sadly, in some villages on Rote island, half of the children are stunted from malnutrition, a lack of food security and a nutritious diet. . . Not only do children who experience stunting face ongoing hunger, but they also have an increased risk of mortality, disease, developmental delays, diminished ability to learn, lower school achievement, and reduced lifelong productivity. We know addressing infant stunting is critical to ensuring children get the best possible start in life.

Destination Rote will cover 12 villages in three key vulnerable sub-districts of Rote, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. More than 1,500 children under the age of five will be reached with improved nutrition, healthcare, and clean water. And this can’t happen without your help. So, please click the link to make a donation or click the link below for more information.
