Today, Amway joins the world in recognizing Global Health Day. Established in 1950 to mark the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations World Health Organization, Global Health Day raises awareness and mobilizes partners to address key global health issues.
The intent of this important day closely aligns with Amway’s Corporate Social Responsibility belief – by using the best of our business and the passion of our people we can solve global challenges and improve individual communities all over the world.
Five years ago the Nutrilite™ Power of 5 campaign partnered with the Alliance for Children Everywhere to serve the nutritional needs of children and families in Zambia, a landlocked country in southern Africa.
“Our organization has been in Zambia since 1997,” said Cari Armbruster, executive director for the Alliance for Children Everywhere. “The amount of poverty and disease is great, with 16 being the average age of local residents. The country also possesses one of the highest rates of orphans in Africa.”
