A group from Mannatech traveled to Ecuador in late July, visiting several Hope Zones with Kids Around the World and dedicating a special playground for the local community.
Through Mannatech donations, the company’s philanthropic initiative Mission 5 Million Foundation (M5M) participated in Kids Around the World’s newest program called Generations Hope. In only nine months, together they have fed 800 children in Ecuador with the Mannatech proprietary Phytoblend meal packet.
“For every $100 spent on Mannatech products, a one-month supply of PhytoBlend™ powder is donated to help nourish a child in need,” said Al Bala, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mannatech. “Through our partnership with Kids Around the World, we are able to utilize their mobile food-packing program, OneMeal, which works with volunteer organizations to package meals for hungry children. Every meal includes our PhytoBlend as the source of vitamins and minerals in the OneMeal meal formulation.”
Mission 5 Million Foundation has generated more than 122 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children since 2009. The company holds a goal of providing more than 20 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children each year.
