Did you know that today, April 7th is World Health Day?
Malnutrition is something that happens all over the world. 1 million children die each year from malnutrition. This is a scary and sad fact. In addition, 17 million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition which is a deadly condition if not treated.
Today on World Health Day, there is a way that we can all make a difference. The Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign from Amway is part of a global effort to fight childhood malnutrition through the distribution of Nutrilite™ Little Bits™, a micronutrient supplement designed to provide children essential vitamins and minerals in their first 5 years of life.
This campaign is designed to bring more awareness of childhood malnutrition plus address the critical need for proper nutrition during the first 5 years, helping children survive and providing them a healthier start into adulthood. The campaign also offers a way that everyone can help.
Success! Working with nongovernmental organizations, Amway already distributes Nutrilite™ Little Bits™ in six countries. The goal is to expand that to 15 countries by 2017.
The Malnutritmapion Mapping Project, sponsored by Amway™, is a digital visualization of the global burden of malnutrition in all its forms in low-, middle- and high-income countries. The map was developed by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) with financial support from Amway™. It provides a broad perspective on the importance of proper nutrition in the health of people and economies, using data compiled from more than 30 countries.
This map really provides a breakdown of where in the world malnutrition occurs most. It details the transforming state of malnutrition and its manifestation in the double burden of under nutrition and overweight and obesity. Creation of the map is part of Amway’s commitment to the SUN Business Network, a United Nations effort to engage multiple sectors to work together to support SUN country national nutrition strategies.
Amway™ and its Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign are committed to fighting childhood malnutrition. Amway has the nutrition expertise needed to address this issue. It cannot be addressed by one person or one company alone, but requires key partnerships.
I encourage you to get involved and show your support of the Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign from Amway and find out how you can be part of World Health Day.

What an amazing campaign! I love to hear stories of companies finding ways to give back.
Giving back is so important to our family. Thanks for sharing a new charity to check out!
Malnutrition is something that affected my own grandmother in my neighboring state! It is amazing how devastating it can be, too.
This sounds like a great campaign that will help a lot of kids. No child should ever go hungry or be malnourished.
This sounds like a great campaign. Giving back is so very important and this sounds just great!
This sounds like an effective way to fight malnutrition. I like that they are trying to partner with multiple entities to try to accomplish their goals.
This is a great post. I will have to go to the website and see how i can help.
The thought of any little sweetheart going hungry just breaks my heart. I like to get involved along with my children to teach them to give back to those less fortunate at an early age.
What an amazing campaign! I love when companies do something special like this to give back to those in need.
Those numbers are staggering. I am so grateful there are organizations we can support to help end the malnutrition of children.
My husband took a class on nutrition in college. Through his work I learned a lot about malnutrition and just how many children, especially, are affected by it. It’s good to see someone taking a stand to help fight malnutrition.
Such an important cause. Great way to give support to malnourished children.
Reducing childhood malnutrition is very important. Thanks for the information on a worthwhile program.
I find it astonishing that anyone would go to bed hungry… on a daily basis. There really isn’t any excuse for this. Thanks to companies like Amway for doing something about it!
What a powerful way to show how we can stop malnutrition! This is a great initiative!
What a wonderful program. I love companies who give back. So amazing. We have a child we sponsor and I use a lot of my blog money for him.
What a great campaign. I love hearing about giving back and seeing that there are still good people in this world!
What an amazing campaign! It’s so important to give back and to teach our kids this lesson too!
This sounds amazing! I love to see how people give back and programs that focus on truly making a difference in the world!
The Power of Five sounds like an amazing campaign. I will have to check it out and see how i can help.
This sounds like such an amazing campaign! I love programs like this! Thanks so much for sharing.
awesome campaign. Wonderful products they have also.
I like the focus on the early childhood years. Youth nutrition is so important (I’m trying to tell that to my picky eater!)
I can’t believe I missed World Health Day! This sounds like a great campaign for helping kids who need it most.
I’ve read several posts today about companies giving back and helping with world hunger. It’s made my day! In this day and age, no child should ever go hungry.
This is a really awesome campaign! I love when big companies decide to give back to those who are less fortunate.
The statistics are sobering when you actually think of the numbers as people. No child should suffer because they are hungry.
This sounds like a truly amazing campaign. We always look for ways to give back as a family.
I didn’t know there was a wold health day. What a cool campaign!
The map is a good visual aid for seeing where help is most needed. That being said, I know help is needed in one way or another, everywhere. Even here in the US. Hunger/malnutrition is heartbreaking.
What a wonderful program Amway helps out with. I love seeing companies use their name for the greater good.
This is a great campaign. We always give back when we can.
This is a campaign I did not know about. We are always looking for ways to help people and animals. Being able to give even just a little goes a long way. Great information, thank you for sharing. The pictures of these kids brought a huge smile to my face!
I am so glad that this company is giving back! My church does missions in third world countries and they see so much poverty.
What an awesome campaign! No child should ever go hungry or be malnourished.
what an awesome campaign!!!! love seeing great things happen for people who really need it.
wow this campaign is amazing! I’m kinda mad I never heard of it before! Thanks for this share!
I actually almost forgot it was a world health day – thanks for reminding me. The power of five is an excellent campaign. I love to see that Amway is involved in making the world a better place and helping kids receive better nutrition around the globe.
