Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) announced that it will commit an additional $1 million to expand its Casa Herbalife program.
The pledge will help the program, which was established in 2005, expand to more than 20 new community partners who provide access to good nutrition for children all over the world. The program currently serves more than 100,000 children in more than 50 countries, including orphanages, after school centers and other community organizations.
“On Giving Tuesday, and every day, we should remind ourselves of the often-cited verse ‘To whom much is given, much is expected’ because we all have a responsibility to care for our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable amongst us,” said Alan Hoffman, president of the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of the Herbalife Nutrition community, this $1 million grant will help at least one vulnerable population, children, lead healthier and happier lives.”
The Foundation’s partnerships with local charities expanded in 2018 with the opening of seven new Casas in Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and two in Vietnam, bringing the number of partners to more than 130 organizations.
