USA TODAY: Amway Expertise Improves Childhood Nutrition Globally

Article

By Steve Van Andel, Amway Chairman

Around the world, Amway is taking on the issue of global malnutrition, helping thousands of children and families live better lives. Everyone needs proper nutrition to achieve their full potential. However, many people — especially children — are not getting the vitamins and minerals they need. This causes a wide range of health and developmental problems.

More than 3.1 million children age 5 and younger die each year of malnutrition, according to the World Health Organization.

We did it!

Starting at midnight on Wednesday, November 20, the Amway Universal Children’s Day came to life. Amway business owners and employees in more than 55 countries participated in volunteering, giving and advocacy with local partners.

We tracked over 100 projects, and are certain that there were many more that we may never know about. They started in Australia, moved around the world, passed through our headquarters in Ada, Michigan, and ended at our Nutrilite offices in Buena Park, California.
