I wanted to share some pictures with you of a Community Health Day that Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) did a few weeks ago, on Saturday 21st of April, in Cipanas. YUM worked with the American Women's Association who found some great sponsors to do this particular event where 160 children (babies to 15 yrs old) and 60 mothers would receive:
- medical and dental check-up
- handwashing program to remind children the importance of handwashing
- english conversation classes
- nutritional food supplements for under 5 children (there's about 25% malnourished kids in Cipanas)
- nutrition talk + cooking demo for the moms
- breastfeeding talk for the moms
- creativity and games for kids
...and a puppet show!! Even I was excited about the puppet show! :)

It was an incredible feeling being there on the event date.... I had been preparing this for a few months and seeing it happen was such an amazing feeling! All the YUM staff were cheerful, worked super hard to prepare everything so it would be perfect and it was, it was a great day!!
