SALT LAKE CITY, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- During a recent mission trip to Malaysia, the USANA True Health Foundation (THF), coordinated an effort to deliver food, medical attention and the building of a new home in Serandah Village, an area deeply affected by yearly flooding and water-borne diseases. THF staff—along with nearly two dozen USANA distributors from Singapore and Malaysia—donated their time and expertise over the course of three days to aid 180 families, even building a home for one family who was chosen by a village vote.
"We are humbled to have had an opportunity to serve the people of Serandah Village and thankful to our Associates who worked tirelessly during our time there to ensure that each family was given the aid and medical attention they needed," said Brian Paul, THF's executive director of communications.
The USANA True Health Foundation was established by USANA—a cellular nutrition company based in Salt Lake City—in 2012 in an effort to provide opportunities for its independent distributors to give back to people in need all over the world. All administrative fees are paid by USANA (NYSE: USNA), which allows the Foundation to donate 100 percent of every dollar raised to those in need.
Through humanitarian missions, regular contributions, fundraising projects and collaborations with the Women's Tennis Association, the nonprofit organization has raised over $13 million to aid hundreds around the world. The Foundation has donated over $6.3 million in its children's multivitamin product—Usanimals—to the Children's Hunger Fund and an additional $5.7 million has been donated to feeding children, providing aid in needy areas as well as disaster relief globally.
