Reliv Kalogris Foundation Dedicates Nutrition Center for Impoverished Children in the Philippines
Date:8/12/2013

Chesterfield, MO (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

The Reliv Kalogris Foundation today announced the completion of their latest building project: a nutrition center for impoverished children in Welfareville, a depressed area in Mandaluyong City, Philippines. The RKF, the charitable arm of Reliv International, Inc. (NASDAQ: RELV), raised funds for the project through last year’s annual Rally for the Mission at the 2012 Reliv International Conference.

Through the RKF’s partnership with Mount Zion Church of the Firstborn (MZCF), this building will be used for the distribution of daily Reliv nutrition shakes, two hot meals per week, choir practice, worship services, day care, life skills training and as a clinic for visiting doctors. “These nutrition centers enable the volunteers to offer more than just nutrition to the children,” said R. Scott Montgomery, chairman of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation. “They also provide resources to help the children experience opportunities otherwise out of their reach.”    

In Welfareville, shanties house as many as 10 family members, exposing all inhabitants to contagious diseases. Of the 60,000 people that live in Welfareville, only 160 children can benefit from the RKF’s program. “The nutrition center is a great step, but we have much more we hope to accomplish in Welfareville and other impoverished areas around the world,” Montgomery added.

The Welfareville Nutrition Center is the seventh Reliv Kalogris Foundation building project. Others include two additional buildings in the Philippines and four in Haiti.

Total Team Effort

From the groundbreaking through the challenge of construction, the building project was overseen by RKF Area Coordinators Pastor George and Blessie Padilla and supported by local volunteers. Reliv corporate staff on hand at the dedication included Montgomery, Reliv Kalogris Foundation Director Reggie Ament and Reliv Asia Pacific Marketing and Communications Coordinator Shannon Jurenka.

The building was funded by donations made by Reliv Distributors at the 2012 Rally for the Mission. Distributors Robert Laird and John Schwendinger additionally wrote a song, “Hope for a Better Tomorrow,” that was performed by the children’s choir at the building dedication as well as by the Primordial Penguin Chorale at the 2013 Reliv International Conference.

“Through the generosity of our Reliv Distributors, this building will become a symbol of hope for the children of Welfareville and their belief in a better tomorrow,” Montgomery said.
