Dedicated to improving the lives of children and families around the world, the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) announced it reached its goal of raising $1.5 million at its annual Gala fundraiser, that helps support more than 178 organisations in 59 countries through its “Casa Herbalife” programme. Through its partners, including hospitals, orphanages, schools, and anti-hunger nonprofit organisations, the Foundation helps improve children’s lives by providing healthy nutrition and nutrition education.
The Gala, which took place over the weekend, was attended by Herbalife independent distributors and employees.
“We’re grateful for the continued generosity of Herbalife’s independent distributors and employees towards our shared mission to ensure children and communities around the world receive access to the meals, nutrition, and care they need to transform their lives”, said Herbalife Nutrition Foundation Executive Director, Jenny Perez.
