Flower Mound, TX, USA – July 28, 2021 – The Mannatech Team traveled to Ecuador last week to help feed children and visit several Hope Zones with Kids Around the World. The week ended with a special playground dedication ceremony for the community’s children.
Since 2009, Mannatech has been on mission to end childhood nutrition. Supporting the Mission 5 Million Foundation (M5M), Mannatech’s programs have generated over 122 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children across the globe. With a goal each year to provide over 20 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children, they are well on their way to making a global difference.
Through Mannatech donations, the M5M foundation is partnering with Kids Around the World to participate in their newest program, Generations Hope. In the last nine months, they’ve fed 800 children in Ecuador with the Mannatech proprietary Phytoblend meal packet that nourishes and supplements their daily food budget.
According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, roughly 100 million children in developing countries are underweight, and over 150 million are malnourished. Undernutrition can hinder brain development, reduce intellectual capacity, and stunt growth. Malnutrition impacts the lives of 55 million children at any given moment.
“For every $100 spent on Mannatech products, a one-month supply of PhytoBlend™ powder is donated to help nourish a child in need,” explained Al Bala, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mannatech. “Through our partnership with Kids Around the World, we are able to utilize their mobile food-packing program, OneMeal, which works with volunteer organizations to package meals for hungry children. Every meal includes our PhytoBlend as the source of vitamins and minerals in the OneMeal meal formulation.”
A healthy blend of vitamins and minerals is important for children. However, the foods being given to those in underdeveloped countries typically do not meet the minimum nutritional criteria. That’s why Mannatech created PhytoBlend™ powder to provide the best variety of nutrients through a trusted and reliable source.
• It contains over 20 vitamins and minerals to help promote and maintain good health and vitality.
• It’s suitable for vegetarians. None of the ingredients in the formula are obtained from animal sources.
• Served in a powder form, it can easily be added to various foods such as soups, rice, and porridge, making it ideal for large feeding programs.
