Flower Mound, TX, USA – October 25, 2021 – The Mannatech Team recently announced at Mannafest that they would sponsor four communities (Hope Zones) with Kids Around the World this year. “We are excited to provide sustainable nutrition, meals, and play for the years to come. With these partnerships, we will be able to see the impact that these donations can have on communities,” said Executive Director Sarah Louthan.

A HopeZone in San Silvestre, Ecuador, launched in January 2021 with approximately 130 kids registered in the Nutrition Program. Situated on the banks of the Portoviejo River only a few miles from its mouth, this low-lying community’s chief income sources are cultivating rice and fishing.

Another HopeZone lifted off in August in Punta Alta, Ecuador. Approximately 110 kids live in Punta Alta and its two neighboring communities combine to form the HopeZone. Nestled atop the hills of Manabi, these communities are off the beaten path, and the local mothers gather to form a volunteer team to lead this HopeZone.

Another HopeZone located in Payita, Dominican Republic, will be launched in October 2021, with around 50 kids included in its first phase. Located 15 miles northwest of Nagua, Payita is a mixed agricultural zone with rice, coconuts, and cattle products, and it also serves as the Generation Hope Hub for the Dominican Republic.

Finally, the fourth HopeZone in El Cruce de Caño, Dominican Republic, will be launched in October 2021. Approximately 40 children live in this community, and this rural community sits on the edge of Nagua, and farm and lumber work is the primary employment.

The number of people affected by hunger increased in 2020 under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. After remaining virtually unchanged from 2014 to 2019, undernourishment (PoU) prevalence climbed to around 9.9 percent in 2020, from 8.4 percent a year earlier.

Since 2009, Mannatech has been on a mission to end childhood nutrition. Supporting the Mission 5 Million Foundation (M5M), Mannatech’s programs have generated over 122 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children across the globe. With a goal each year to provide over 20 million servings of nutritional support for malnourished children, they are well on their way to making a global difference.
