During Reliv International’s annual salesforce conference in August, the nutrition company celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation (RKF), which currently provides free, daily nutritional supplements to 40,000 malnourished people in nine countries.
“I can best express my feeling about the last 20 years of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation in just two words: thank you,” RKF Chairman R. Scott Montgomery told the crowd gathered at America’s Center in downtown St. Louis. “The RKF’s 20th Anniversary is a celebration of the life-changing work made possible by the generosity of Reliv Distributors from around the world.”
In the past two decades, the charity has donated more than $42 million in product and established upwards of 250 feeding programs across the nine countries where it operates. The Reliv Kalogris Foundation—named for the creator of Reliv’s first product, the late Dr. Theodore Kalogris—has also supported relief efforts in the wake of natural disasters, such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and the typhoon that struck the Philippines in 2013.
