Reliv Foundation Donates $450,000 In Nutritional Supplements to Haitian Relief Efforts
Date:2/12/2010

CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Reliv Kalogris Foundation, the charitable arm of Reliv International, Inc., is donating $450,000 worth of children's nutritional supplements to Haitian earthquake relief efforts.  

The donation includes more than 3,000 cases of Reliv Now for Kids, a supplement containing a broad base of essential vitamins, minerals and micronutrients designed to strengthen children's health. Reliv produces nutritional supplements that are marketed through a network of 67,000 independent distributors in 15 countries.  

The Reliv Foundation already provides free nutritional supplements daily to nearly 8,000 malnourished children through 24 feeding programs in Haiti.  Today's shipment will be used for any earthquake victims. The company foundation will continue to supply its feeding programs separately.    

"Reliv and our foundation have been shipping children's nutritional products to Haiti for more than 15 years," said R. Scott Montgomery, chairman of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation.  "In addition to the new shipment of nutritional supplements we are announcing today, we have raised $45,000 in cash donations for Haiti relief."  

Montgomery added, "The $45,000 was raised in January through online cash donations to the foundation.  We are extending that program through February and we look forward to sending additional funds to Haitian relief efforts in several weeks," he added.

In addition to nutritional supplements, the foundation has donated bio-sand water filtration units to the Haitian feeding programs so that the children can use safe drinking water for their daily nutritional shakes.  Reliv supplements are powders that are mixed with water or other liquids and then consumed.

Since 2007, the Reliv Foundation has donated the funds to build two new buildings that serve as nutrition centers and classrooms in Haiti; one is in Liberale and the other is in Bois Lance.  Both are in the northern part of Haiti and did not suffer damages from the earthquake.
