LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF), a non-profit organization committed to improving lives by helping organizations provide healthy nutrition to vulnerable children, has launched its second Casa Herbalife Program in Indonesia, which focuses on nutrition for children with special needs.
The new Casa Herbalife program will support Rumah Autis, a social organization that provides education and therapy to poor families with children diagnosed with autism and other special needs. HFF will provide an initial grant to improve the nutrition of 250 children who take part in Rumah Autis programs located in different regions of Indonesia. The money will also be used for building renovation and upgrading kitchen and sanitary equipment to create a better and safer environment for the children.
The first Casa Herbalife program in Indonesia was established in 2012 and has provided services to the 220 children living at the Pondok Kasih Agape Orphanage in Jakarta.
Casa Herbalife is HFF's flagship program offering grants to non-profit organizations that provide supportive, social services to underprivileged children around the world, including special projects and ongoing programs that fund good nutrition. To date, more than 100 Casa Herbalife programs have been established across the world including 22 in the Asia Pacific region.
The Casa Herbalife Program was established in 2005, to help bring good nutrition to children living in orphanages or attending after school centers, as well as other child-centric non-profit facilities. After initial financial grants made by HFF, participating organizations receive local financial and volunteer support from independent Herbalife members, as well as Herbalife employees.
