Nourish our World

SchoolDedication-webClasses Are Now in Session!

The Reliv Kalogris Foundation is proud to announce the opening of St. John the Baptist National School of Petite-Anse, Haiti. The school building, damaged in the 2010 earthquake, had been declared unsafe for use in case of future earthquakes. The RKF provided  funds to upgrade the building for sanctioned use as a functioning elementary school.

RKF support reinforced and refurbished the school building and stocked it with new desks, blackboards and supplies. The school now serves more than 200 children from the surrounding area, grades K-6, and plans are in place to expand the facility to serve more than 500 students, including a trade school for older youth.

The school is located just steps away from the Reliv Kalogris Foundation’s children’s home, opened in May 2011. The children’s home, a three story stand-alone structure with three dormitory-style wings, a fully furnished kitchen and two dining halls, provides housing for more than 40 children, most having lost family in the 2010 earthquake.

“From the beginning, our goal was to give these children not only a home but provide education and job training, as well as supplying our nutritional supplement on a daily basis. Through the generosity of Reliv Distributors and employees, we have reached that goal,” said Reliv Kalogris Foundation Chairman R. Scott Montgomery. “The children are thriving and have developed a new family unit in their home and school. The daily nutritional shakes are provided not only to the children in our home but to the 200+ children from the surrounding neighborhood who are also attending this neighborhood school.”  Continue reading “Nourish our World”

Reliv Kalogris Foundation Responds to Typhoon Haiyan

Online donations in November to be directed to Philippine disaster relief

Dear Distributor:

The devastating typhoon that struck the Philippines has caused untold damage and impacted countless lives. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragedy.

At Reliv, we have a special connection to the Philippines. Not only is it one of our 15 countries of operation, it is also home to 100+ Reliv Kalogris Foundation feeding programs that provide quality nutrition to thousands of needy children every day.

First the good news: many of our Philippine Distributors have contacted us to let us know they are safe. In addition, most feeding programs, including the RKF buildings in Cavite and Welfareville, escaped without damage. Our office in Manila was also unharmed by the storm and our corporate staff has reported that all employees are safe. They are actively participating in relief efforts and preparing to transport water and Reliv products via bus to affected areas.

Unfortunately, we have not yet received news from Philippine Distributors and feeding programs near Tacloban City in the direct path of the storm. We hope and pray for the best. Stay tuned to the RKF Facebook page for updates.
