Reliv Kalogris Foundation Earns Communitas Award for Haiti Relief Efforts
CHESTERFIELD, Mo., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Reliv Kalogris Foundation has received a Communitas Award honoring the work the Foundation has done in Haiti. A 2010 catastrophic earthquake devastated Haiti, but 60 children who were orphaned by the disaster found a home, thanks to the RKF.
The annual Communitas Awards are inspired by the vision of a better world and is an attempt to do something about it through volunteerism, investment and ethical, sustainable business practices.
The children's home has two dormitory-style wings on an upper floor over the fully furnished kitchen and two dining halls that can also serve as study rooms and recreation areas. The goal is to give these children a home-like atmosphere, provide education and job training for the older children, and supply nutritional supplements on a daily basis.
"The extraordinary generosity of Reliv Distributors and employees makes it possible for the foundation to help malnourished children in Haiti and elsewhere," said R. Scott Montgomery, chairman of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation.
Reliv also earned a second Communitas Award in 2012 for its annual "Week of Caring" – a company-sponsored volunteer project in which employees donate time, money and supplies to local non-profit organizations. Reliv has earned a total of four Communitas Awards in the past three years.
