This Week’s Challenge: Help a Friend in Need

Activity: Do something kind for someone in your life who is going through a tough time or who could benefit from your love and support

When it comes to our emotional and physical health, relationships are of paramount importance. The National Institute of Health found that the presence of supportive social relationships is linked to a longer life, reduced stress and heart-related risks, improved immune system response, and overall well-being. Faith’s story shows us what’s possible when we have a little help from our friends.

Casa Herbalife Spotlight: Faith

At 9 years old, Faith is the sole caregiver for her mother who has terminal cancer and has become very debilitated by her treatments. Faith originally came to our Casa partner, Action for Children for academic support, but was quickly offered a space in the Cooking Club.

In a very short period of time, cooking class has become a lifeline for Faith. She’s an enthusiastic participant in cooking classes, tries new foods, and always takes a meal home for her mother. Faith has also made friends and for the first time ever, she has a support network of children her age. Her mother has told us that the classes have given Faith something to look forward to and a source of stable support.

Everyone Needs Loving Relationships.

We also know that caring relationships are a vital part of every child’s development. Sadly, many children around the world are growing up without a loving caregiver or supportive peer group. That’s why Herbalife Nutrition Foundation provides funding to orphanages, shelters, schools, after-school programs that provide children with more than just consistent nutrition… but the caring relationships they need to thrive. Find out how you can support our Casa Herbalife programs here.
