SOS Children’s Village Partner for Sustainable Farming Project with Herbalife Nutrition

“We are glad to partner with SOS Children’s Village in a new project that contributes to the food security of the people residing in their villages, whilst also finding an environmentally friendly way to recycle our used canisters. Through this project, we hope to bring forward important issues such as food insecurity, malnutrition, and environment sustainability, all of which need to be dealt with urgently. This is in alignment with our global Nutrition for Zero Hunger project. Since 2010, the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation has been supporting SOS Children’s Village. They have been the primary driver of our health and nutrition projects throughout the years. ~Sridhar Rajagopalan, Senior Director and Sub-region Head, Herbalife Nutrition Philippines
