Supporting child hunger relief

October 2020: 16 October 2020 is no ordinary World Food Day. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted food environments and systems; and the continuing economic fall-out is plummeting millions more people into food insecurity. Since hard lockdown in March this year, there has been a concerted mobilisation in South Africa to help improve access to sufficient food resources across the country. However, many South Africans remain precariously on the brink of hunger, and many children are at risk of malnutrition. In response to this heart-breaking socioeconomic situation, South African-born skincare brand Environ Skin Care has announced a six-month programme to boost the daily nutrition of vulnerable pre-schoolers.

Joining hands with stockists, beauty therapists and consumers, the #EnvironCares initiative has pledged R500 000 to support a vital children’s nutrition programme in the GROW Educare Centres. The donation has been linked to the sales of the Environ essential vitamin A range in South Africa.

The programme will enable GROW Educare Centres situated in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban communities to provide a power porridge meal to 1 800 children, for 5 days a week over the six month period; resulting in a total of 238 000 meals. Packed with an ideal, scientifically researched combination of essential nutrients, the power porridge offers much needed wholesome sustenance to support healthy childhood development

Val Carstens, Environ Skin Care Group Chairman, CEO and Director says, "The #EnvironCares initiative has partnered with GROW Educare Centres because they have an effective child nutrition programme infrastructure already in place which ensures that the donation reaches the children who are at risk of malnutrition. We're concerned at the current hunger situation in South Africa and Environ wants to support to make a difference."

We encourage our distributor partners, stockists, therapists and consumers to help us feed our future by donating to the programme. Follow the link to learn more.
