Legacy Hotels & Resorts, the leaders and experts in independent luxury hotels and resorts across Africa, have partnered with Nutriwell – Innovative Nutrition Solutions with an ambitious task of feeding over 10 million children over the next 2 years.
Nutriwell, Founder and CEO, Earl Phillip, saw the need to address the lack of affordable, convenient and nutritional food products available to poor households in our communities. To-date it has helped feed over 1 million children with its range fortified products.
Now Legacy guests can contribute to the programme across the hospitality group from as little as R10 in order to make a difference in the lives of others. Speaking about the new partnership, Robert Hodson, Group Marketing Manager for Legacy Hotels & Resorts reiterated how the values of community participation and leaving an actual legacy for the future was something that was shared by both organisations.
“Legacy has over 20 properties across the continent, and community involvement and upliftment is a big part of our ethos with each of our properties actively involved in localised community upliftment,” says Hodson. “Partnering with an organisation like Nutriwell allows us to continue the work we are already doing, while also investing in the health and wellbeing of our greatest resource – our children – something our chairman and CEO Bart Dorrestein often references through “candle of hope’.”
“The collaboration with Legacy Hotels and Resorts will serve as a catalyst to address the high levels of hunger, young learners face on a daily basis, this initiative will now be further highlighted with Legacy’s network of Hotel and Resorts across the continent. We are honoured to have been given the opportunity and share in the vision of Mr Bart Dorrestein” – Earl Phillip, CEO and Founder - Nutriwell
