Provision of nutrition products such as Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 Shake and Protein Bar to healthcare workers
Premier global nutrition company Herbalife Nutrition, and its non-profit corporation Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, have jointly pledged $1.79 million worth of aid in support of COVID-19 relief efforts, as part of their commitment to supporting the global community through uncertain times.
This contribution includes cash and in-kind donations that will go into supporting essential relief across seven Asia Pacific countries — Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt the lives of millions in Asia Pacific, this has resulted in medical resources being stretched, and families being more susceptible to hunger and food insecurity.
To help address some of these issues, Herbalife Nutrition’s contribution will go into providing the necessary medical and nutrition supplies in partnership with local non-profit organisations in the region. These include:
- Provision of medical supplies such as protective gear and test kits to hospitals;
- Provision of nutrition products such as Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 Shake and Protein Bar to healthcare workers who are working round the clock to care for the influx of COVID-19 patients;
- Provision of personal hygiene products such as face masks, hand sanitizers, hand soap and mouthwash to needy children through Herbalife Nutrition Foundation’s Casa Herbalife Program;
- Provision of cash funds to support relief efforts through local organisations such as the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee.
