Herbalife Family Foundation brings festive cheer to over 200 children at the SOS Children’s Village In the Philippines






PHILIPPINES, Manila, December 16, 2016 – To cap off an eventful year, Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) visited two of its beneficiary organizations under, SOS Children’s Village, to bring the festive cheer to over 200 children. During the visits, HFF Philippines held activities, which brought fun and joy and left big smiles on the children’s faces.

As part of the activities, Herbalife donated a total of 250 books to the Batangas and Bataan Villages of SOS through the CASA Herbalife Program, the flagship project of HFF. The books were given by Herbalife independent members and guests via a month-long book collection program organized by Herbalife Philippines, and benefitted 245 children from the villages.

Barbette Soliven, Corporate Communications Manager at Herbalife Philippines and the lead organizer of the activities said, “Ever since we started these visits enabled by the CASA Herbalife program, we have strived to make it a more engaging experience for both the volunteers and the kids. I’m heartened to see that we have achieved that this time round, and am glad to see the smiles on the childrens’ and volunteers’ faces at the end of the day.”



Herbalife distributors, executives and volunteers also spent two consecutive Saturdays (November 26 and December 3) at the SOS facilities in Lipa, Batangas and Mariveles, Bataan, where they spent time interacting with and playing with the children.

One of the key highlights was the Ultimate Frisbee Clinic organized by Herbalife Philippines, where the children were taught the basics of the sport, before culminating in a scrimmage game played together with the volunteer team. The eventual winning team was applauded by all the participants, and won themselves a Herbalife T-shirt and a Frisbee each.

“We are very grateful to all the Members who have supported the activities and took time to be with us; as well as the young volunteers who joined us in teaching these kids the sport of Ultimate Frisbee, ” Barbette Soliven added.


SOS Children’s Village has been a recipient of the CASA Herbalife program for six years now. In 2016, grants from HFF were used to conduct supplementary feeding programs and provide nutrition education at targeted locations within the Philippines, benefitting 609 children below the age of 12 in 24 communities.

First established in the United States in 2005, the CASA Herbalife Program aims to improve the lives of children around the world by bringing good nutrition to those living in orphanages, attending after-school centers, and other non-profit facilities. Through the CASA Herbalife Program, Herbalife provides over $3.2 million in funding and volunteer assistance to more than 130 organizations around the world each year, bringing good nutrition to thousands of children in orphanages, community centers and hospitals in over 50 countries around the world.

After a gruesome week at work, I was able to spend my off with my family and we decided to have a staycation, with some recommendations from my colleagues and friends, we chose to stay in Bosay Resort in Antipolo.

Rebisco Cracker’s Pasobra Pack makes snack time more meaningful

Enjoying a snack or sharing your food to your friend or love ones is very common to Filipinos. But sometimes eating what our body needs like healthy food is one of the things we often take for granted because of the lifestyle that we have.

But for many Filipino children and their families, access to nutritious meals is a constant struggle. Satisfying hunger is one thing; ensuring that the food is nourishing is another challenge altogether. This nutrition gap can lead to deficiencies that deprive a growing child’s body of proper nutrients needed for growth and brain development.



According to data from UNICEF, two of the main micronutrient deficiencies are iron and iodine. Iodine is vital for normal growth and tissue development. Lack of iodine can contribute to brain damage that is otherwise preventable. It is most devastating during fetal development and the first few years of a child’s life.

Iron helps carry oxygen around the body, and is especially vital for the brain and blood. Ir…
