Nu Skin has been hard at work continuing our Force For Good mission to improve the lives of children by offering hope for a life free from disease, illiteracy, and poverty. Here are a few highlights from this quarter!

 

Nourish The Children

In February, Nu Skin stepped in with its Nourish the Children (NTC) initiative to make a positive difference in the lives of young Colombian students by sending VitaMeal purchased and donated by the Nu Skin family of customers and distributors to Columbia.*  This is the first time the specially formulated meals have been distributed in that country.

 

The vegetarian, non-dairy porridge is being distributed in cooperation with the Barefoot Foundation in five schools in the rural and impoverished areas of Cartagena and Barranquilla. An estimated 2,600 Colombian children now receive VitaMeal each month.

 

These children now benefit from receiving both an education and a nutritious meal each day. The VitaMeal distribution allows them to be more focused on their studies, while the schooling prepares them for success in the future.

 

*The price charged by Nu Skin for VitaMeal includes the cost of manufacturing, general overhead, distribution and sales.  Just like other Nu Skin products, distributors are paid commissions and Nu Skin earns a reasonable profit margin from the sales of VitaMeal.

 

Force For Good

The Nu Skin Force For Good Foundation donated to the Chewa Heritage Foundation (CHEFO) to provide relief to victims in the Chikwawa and Nsanje districts of Malawi, which were completely covered by mass flooding in January. The impact devastated thousands of families who lost their homes and suffered total crop loss from submerged farmland. In fact, most of the people who were displaced from their villages are still living in temporary relief sites such as churches, schools, community buildings and displacement camps.

 

The US donated funds that were earmarked to procure maize, beans, salt, plates and blankets. These supplies were distributed to 1,000 families in the Bereu and Mgabu camps in the Chikwawa District and the Mguda and Mpasta camps in the Nsanje District. The Malawi Government, as a partner in the relief effort, provided the necessary trucks and fuel to transport and distribute the much-needed items to those displaced by the natural disaster. Staff members from Children’s Brighter Future in Malawi, an organization funded by Nu Skin Japan, accompanied CHEFO members to oversee the distribution of the items. ■
