The charitable arm of nutrition company Herbalife is bringing its Casa Herbalife program to New Zealand, in partnership with the local Starship Foundation.
The Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) aims to improve the lives of children in need, primarily by providing critical nutrition on a number of fronts. In 2005, HFF launched the Casa Herbalife program, which focuses on reaching those in need by partnering with charities already on the ground serving children.
The first partner identified by Casa Herbalife New Zealand is the Starship Foundation, the charity of New Zealand’s national children’s hospital. HFF donations will help fund Starship’s services to families caring for sick children, including supermarket vouchers to purchase groceries.
“Many Starship families from all over New Zealand will face some of the toughest challenges of their lives when caring for a critically ill or injured young patient,” said Brad Clark, Starship Foundation Chief Executive. “This aid will assist these families with their food and nutrition needs and help them through the hard times.”
Herbalife members and employees, as well as their friends and families, currently support more than 130 Casa Herbalife programs worldwide through recurring or one-time donations to the Herbalife Family Foundation.
