The Modern Nanays of Mindanao currently implements the Project Kain, a blanket supplementary feeding and capacity building initiative, that aims to sustain the provision of fresh, hot and varied meals through urban gardening and income generation.


Such project has been done since most of the IDPs only receive packed processed food during relief operations and as health advocates, the MNM sought for ways to feed the evacuees with the right kind of food especially the children and their mothers.


As for raising livelihood funds, Nadine Casiño, founder of MNM, said, “We also believe we need to teach our families how to generate their own income so they can sustain their families as they move to rehabilitation.”


The fun run is one of the major activities spearheaded by the MNM to celebrate the International Babywearing Week slated annually every first week of October. Babywearing is the practice of keeping babies or toddlers close while engaging in activities of daily living. Its benefits include increased growth and secured attachment for babies and a boost of confidence for parents.
