4Life Makes First 4Life Fortify ® Donation in Costa Rica (April 2011)

4Life executives and distributors gathered in San Jose, Costa Rica for the inaugural 4Life Fortify® donation in the country. The group provided 4Life Fortify to over 250 kids at a feeding center that distributes more than 5,000 meals a month to impoverished children. The center is supported by Red Viva, a charity organization that focuses on the holistic development of children in need, with a specific focus on malnutrition.

As the most populated city in Costa Rica, San Jose is home to an increasing number of families who struggle to provide basic necessities for their children. From a young age, many children are forced to choose between attending school and helping their family earn money for food.

Many 4Life executives attended the event, including Chief Financial Officer Mark Ostler and his wife Debbie, 4Life Fortify Nutrition Program Director Tracie Kay, the finance team from the Home Office, and finance managers from Latin America. Over a dozen 4Life distributors also attended, including International Diamond Carlos Herrera Delgado and International Diamonds Gustavo Adolfo Moreira and Flor De Liz Hidalgo. 4Life donated a total of 168,000 4Life Fortify meals to the center and local mothers who volunteer there were filled with appreciation for the outpouring of support.

4Life distributors and employees brought the kids a rare day of joy and excitement, with clown entertainment, face painting, balloon animals, and even cake for dessert. Plus, each child received a kit filled with needed supplies for the upcoming school year.

“This project was unprecedented because of the involvement of a number of local 4Life distributors and employees from several Latin American offices,” commented Tracie. “We heard several stories from mothers who want so badly for their children to go to school and have a small meal to fill their stomachs, but they simply don’t have the resources to provide these necessities. Sadly, they are often stuck in this rut for their entire lives. 4Life distributors and employees can provide opportunities these families never knew existed and improve their lives for both the present and future.”
