(VEN) - Premier nutrition company Herbalife Vietnam has opened a new Casa Herbalife Program for Viet Tri Orphan and Disabled Children Protection Center, the sixth Casa Herbalife Vietnam Program in Vietnam. For the 2022-2023 period, Herbalife Vietnam will provide this center with funding of over VND467 million which will be used to subsidize nutritious food for 127 children.
Mr. Vu Van Thang, General Manager for Herbalife Vietnam and Cambodia, said: “We’re proud and happy to see the continued expansion of the Casa Herbalife Vietnam Program, which is aligned with our long-term corporate social responsibility agenda and Herbalife Nutrition Foundation’s mission to help needy communities around the globe. Following this launch, we will work closely with the Viet Tri Orphans and Disabled Children Protection Center to help the children under this shelter to access nutritious meals on a daily basis and adopt active lives to grow healthily and reach their full potential.”
Ms. Nguyen Thi Nghia, President of Viet Tri Orphans and Disabled Children Protection Center, said: “We’re impressed with the valuable support that the Casa Herbalife Vietnam Program has brought to disadvantaged children in Vietnam over the past several years. Therefore, we’re very delighted that this meaningful program has been introduced to Viet Tri Orphans and Disabled Children Protection Center. This is the first time we have received such comprehensive support and I believe the food subsidy as well as the care from the donors will help bring in lots of wonderful changes to our children, both physically and spiritually”.
Launched in 2013, the Casa Herbalife Vietnam Program has helped around 1,000 needy children to have access to healthy nutrition on a daily basis with total grants of over VND14 billion since then. In 2021, Herbalife Vietnam also introduced the Nutrition For Zero Hunger (NFZG) Star Program to its Casa Herbalife Vietnam centers to help these children have better knowledge of healthy food and to build routines of regular exercise.
