SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The USANA True Health Foundation recently teamed up with the nonprofit, international humanitarian organization, International Relief Teams to donate $50,000 worth of supplies to the recent flood victims in Manila, Philippines. This is the first disaster relief contribution the foundation has made since its inception earlier this year.
"The foundation was created to rapidly, and effectively help deserving populations in times of need, and to help improve both their health and living conditions," explained Elaine Pace, president of the USANA True Health Foundation. "Through the generosity of our USANA family, we were able to respond quickly and provide the most urgently needed assistance to the resident of Manila and those affected in surrounding areas."
As a result of the organization's donation, 1.4 million water purification tablets and several thousand rehydration salts were delivered to those impacted by the country's seasonal monsoon rains and widespread flooding. Food for nearly 5,000 people was also conveyed to the ailing region." The Philippines is one of USANA's international markets, so it's imperative that we not only help those directly affected by this natural disaster but also support our USANA family in the region during this time," said Jim Bramble, foundation board member and USANA's chief legal officer and general counsel.
