Partners with the Nutrilite™ Power of 5 campaign through a community clinic in a mountainous region that draws families from 35 rural communities.
Our partnership activities include:
In March 2017, a family with five daughters, age 6 months to 8 years, moved to Sabana de Jengibre, a small community 30 minutes southwest of El Cercado, for housing and a job possibility. At the time, their youngest daughters, 6-month-old twins, both weighed 12 pounds and were thought to be malnourished. Their new neighbors referred the family to the Child Nutrition Program as a potential source of support for the family. Being new to the area, the mother’s friendly manner and openness helped her to quickly take to the educational component and the connections that the CNP provides. With the increased attention and improved nutrition, the twins have been making rapid progress. In just three months, both girls have gained 4 pounds, and mom has noted improvement in their overall health, and that of their older sisters, as well.
Amway has launched the Nutrilite™ Power of 5 campaign to fight childhood malnutrition around the world. Although malnutrition is a widespread and growing problem, it is preventable. As a leader in nutrition, Amway is in an ideal position to help.
