MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Media OutReach – 28 February 2022 The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF), a global nonprofit foundation, dedicated to improving the lives of children and families around the world, announced it has allocated US$333,000 to the World Food Program USA to assist with disaster relief from Typhoon Odette in the Philippines. The grant will support the U.N. World Food Programme — the largest humanitarian organization combating global hunger—in distributing food to the Dinagat Islands, with a goal of reaching 5,400 families.

“As a global nutrition foundation committed to eradicating hunger, we are keenly aware that disasters can leave many people without access to food and clean water. During critical moments like these, we support efforts to help alleviate food insecurity, in partnership with our distributors,” Stephen Conchie, Board Member of the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, and Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Herbalife Nutrition, Asia Pacific and China regions.

Over eight million people have been affected by Typhoon Odette and, in some regions, 80% of the total population has been severely impacted. When the typhoon hit in December 2021, Herbalife Nutrition Foundation activated a month-long campaign through disaster relief partner, the Red Cross Philippines, to help the victims in urgent need of food, clothing, clean water and blankets.

“Herbalife Nutrition and the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation have been committed partners helping us feed and sustain those most in need around the world,” said Gabriella Morris, Chief Philanthropy Officer for World Food Program USA. “This donation will help us provide critical food assistance to thousands of vulnerable families impacted by the typhoon and help them to build resilience and capacity to withstand future shocks.”

The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation has been committed to helping alleviate food shortages for more than 17 years. In 2021 alone, the Foundation donated more than US$5 Million to help support more than 167 organizations around the world end global hunger, including Asociación Mexicana de Bancos de Alimentos (BAMX), SOS Children’s Villages of Europe, Africa, India and the Philippines, A Place Called Home (APCH) in the United States, Pour un Sourire d’Enfant in Cambodia, Daegu Children’s Welfare Center in Korea and Foundation for Children in Thailand.

HNF’s work complements Herbalife Nutrition’s Nutrition for Zero Hunger campaign, a global initiative aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 2, which seeks to end global hunger by 2030.

In Asia Pacific, HNF’s Casa Herbalife Nutrition program brings healthy meals and nutrition education to more than 100,000 children in need.
