Irreversible stunting of child brain development results from the chronic undernourishment of children between birth and age 5. The Liahona Children’s Foundation targets helping children in this age range by providing critical nourishment in order to minimize the effects of poverty in the developing world. In this episode I talk with Robert Rees, who is one of the founders of the Liahona Children’s Foundation, about the genesis of the LCF and how the LCF functions. After our interview Brian Kissell and I walk through the donation process to hopefully clear up any confusion on how that works. Join with us!!!

Here are additional links about our current efforts and any information you might want to know so you can contribute:

For those who contribute via a recurring donation there is not a space to earmark your donation to the “Ta Khmau” stake. In order to make sure your contribution is counted in the RF cause please email shaelaavery@liahonachildren.org and she will ensure that your donation is directed to the Ta Khmau account.
