Building Hope

Pg26head

The Reliv Kalogris Foundation has completed its latest building project: a nutrition center for impoverished children in Welfareville, a depressed area in Mandaluyong City, Philippines. The Foundation raised funds for the project through last year’s annual Rally for the Mission at the 2012 Reliv International Conference.

Through our partnership with Mount Zion Church of the Firstborn (MZCF), this building will be used for the distribution of daily Reliv shakes, two hot meals per week, choir practice, worship services, day care, life skills training and as a clinic for visiting doctors. Thanks to the generosity of Reliv Distributors, these children can look forward to a brighter future.

In Welfareville, shanties house as many as 10 family members, exposing all inhabitants to contagious diseases. Quality nutrition is in vital demand. Of the 60,000 people that live in Welfareville, only 160 children benefit from our program. With your help we hope to add to that number in the years to come. Learn more.

RKF Chairman R. Scott Montgomery hands out cups of Reliv Now® for Kids to needy children. For many of them, this life-giving nutrition is the only way they recognize the care and concern of others. The three-story RFK Nutrition Center stands as a symbol of hope while providing needy children with the nourishment they need. Welfareville is made up of shanties covering approximately 250 acres with the skyscrapers of downtown Manila as their backdrop.

Himig Pag-asa Children’s Choir performed songs of hope and joy at the building dedication ceremony. These children are thriving with better health and social activity. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the new nutrition center took place in May. Reliv staff members Shannon Jurenka, Reggie Ament and Scott Montgomery were on hand to celebrate the event. The group from Reliv headquarters was greeted by a parade of children carrying signs of gratitude.
