MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, August 17 (PIA) — To sustain the evident 4.78 percent decrease of malnutrition rate in 2014 from 8.4 percent in 2013, the local government unit of Guinsiliban strengthened its food production effort s among poor families, especially to households with underweight and severely underweight pre-school children.
