Ways to Help Children In Venezuela, Because They Are Dying Of Malnutrition
Our mission is to help all children of this world live happier lives and have a bright future, regardless of where they were born and the circumstances they were forced to live during their childhood. And even though we are a small organization, we put the main focus on taking action right now. Impacting the life of even a single child in need, it’s worth the effort. Mother Teresa said «If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one” If we all help change the life of one child each, we can change the world.
But, because nowadays, it is harder and harder for non-for-profit organizations to fund their activities, we have decided to create a for-profit business with the objective of providing financial stability to the members of our team, by doing something that matters. Because with part of the profits of our sales, we are financing this amazing philanthropic program called the U Care Program.
Today I wanted to share some of the faces of the children we are helping, in Caracas, Venezuela. And a little more about the mission of this project.
Too often we see on TV, newspapers and the Internet, news about children dying of malnutrition. To those of us who have children, it is hard not to wonder, that if for circumstances of life, my own child would be forced to live a reality like that. That’s why we created this program.
I wanted to do this post to be super clear about what we do and how we can help you too. I guess you have seen me promoting our products and programs on social media and many of you may be thinking if we are really making the donations or if it’s just another marketing strategy to sell. I’m here to give you my word, that this is a real philanthropic program financed by your purchases and making a real impact in real children.Children in Venezuela are dying from malnutrition, let's help them!

The U Care Program – Help a Child in Need
The program is called «U Care program» and as I said before is funded with part of the profits from the sales of our Personalized Health Coaching programs and guides, affiliate program commissions and direct sales of Adriana Wellness’s products.
The U Care Program is a 100% philanthropic initiative.
Yes, we are a for-profit company, we sell products to have profits, which allow us to cover our expenses and grow as a company. But more than anything, we want to make a positive impact in this world.
We want to grow by selling products that we are sure will help you in a deep way: with your health and wellness. Because we know, and you know, that our health is the most precious asset we have.
Without True Health We Can’t be Happy
But we not only wanted to sell a product, we also want to leave a legacy. Fortunately, this is what we are doing, because by helping you to improve your life and be happy, we are also improving the lives of these children:
Children in Venezuela have been the main victims of a terrible crisis. A crisis of which they are not to blame.
So, our objective with this initiative is to help you become the best version of yourself «DbestU» for short, and in the process, fund our donation program. The program main mission is to provide appropriate nutrition, tools, and support to children in need in developing countries.
With the purchase of any of our healthy eating guides, plans, coaching programs, and affiliate products not only YOU become «The Best YOU»
You help a child in need to become the best version of himself/herself.
We have started this program in Venezuela due to the proximity and knowledge of the region. I’m from Venezuela and my team is comprised of Venezuelan friends, some of whom help us grow U Care Program from there. In the future, our objective is to expand the footprint of U Care Program to other regions, and in the long term be able to help children in need from all over the planet to reach their full potential.
We founded this program with the goal of making a significant impact in the world. One of our biggest motivations is that while we help thousands of people to improve their health, at the same time we are helping our Venezuelan children who are victims of an atrocious situation originated from an economic and politic crisis without precedents.
If you are not familiar with Venezuela’s situation I invite you to watch this video:
The situation that you see in the video above is happening all around the country. And what we want is to make a positive impact and leave a mark, both in you and in these innocent children, even if we can feed just one child at a time.
The main funding of U Care Program comes from the sales of my nutritional programs, guides, courses, commissions from sales of nutritional products that we promote, and from any purchase you make from the links to Amazon that we provide, like the banner below:
Our Latest Donation Event
From Adriana Wellness, we are donating healthy meals to the children in need who attend a non-for profit organization in Caracas, Venezuela. We have done 4 healthy-meal donation events and sports activities for these children.
Our 4th donation event in Caracas took place on May 30th, 2018. It was a great success and the children were so happy to receive very healthy and delicious food, which they are lacking these days.
The event on May 30th consisted of over 30 children having lunch at the non-for profit institution, thanks to the support of our clients. And we are proud to say that all the food for all these children was founded by U Care program and the menu was healthy and nutritious, which is super important because most of these children who come to this institution present malnutrition and many of them eat just once or twice a day.
The menus offered by U Care Program are carefully studied and conceived in such a way that the ingredients are relatively easy to find by the staff (also a difficult task nowadays in Venezuela),
- Shredded chicken: Stewed with Chayote, Peas, Carrots, Celery, Onion, Garlic, Fresh Tomatoes, Spinach, Basil, and Broccoli
- Minestrone type lentils
- Green salad
- Natural guava juice without sugar
This meal was rich in nutrients. It included organic vegetables, fresh local and seasonal ingredients which not only offered an incredible taste but also gave them the type of nutrition they are so needing.
Many of these children have deficiencies in terms of weight with respect to their age, in addition to the fact that they do not attend school on a regular basis due to the lack of food (they do not have the strength to travel to their schools or to support the day without eating anything all day).
Additionally, there’s a sanitary issue since there’s a shortage of personal hygiene products as well (soap, shampoo, etc.) So these children are also prone to contagious diseases.
After lunch, we offered them a recreational activity with games and balloons.
Even though there are many challenges ahead of us, we have remained committed to helping these children with these donations and activities, since we did our first donation back in August 2017. And it’s our goal to do these activities more often, even every day. However, as you can imagine, our resources are limited. The high cost and scarcity of food right now in Venezuela make it very difficult for a small group on their own to make the needed impact.
These donations and activities we have been doing so far, are not only financed by the sales we make but also from our own pocket. However, both, our personal savings and our sales, are not enough. That is why we need you.
The need is bigger than the resources we have at this time.
That’s why we are asking for YOUR help!
How can you contribute and be part of the change?
Many have asked us how they can collaborate since this is not funded by direct donations. We are not registered as a non-profit so we can’t receive donations.
We finance this program by the sales of any of the products we have listed Adriana Wellness’ site. This way we can also add value to everyone: to you by improving your own health in some way and to children in need by bringing food to their plates.
For every $100 in sales, we donate $10
It’s a Win-Win
So, if you want to collaborate and want to make positive changes in your own life. This is the perfect opportunity for you. You can take this opportunity to help others and at the same time improve your eating habits, and that way have more energy and vitality. I know you would love that (who wouldn’t). I invite you to start TODAY. There are several ways you can be part of the change:
