Area of Greatest Need
Area of Greatest Need: Immediate Help
Donations to the Area of Greatest Need will, in part, allow for the immediate release of fund and aid for worldwide disasters.
In the midst of catastrophic events, the basic needs of human beings, such as food, water, and shelter, must be met promptly and with the utmost urgency. The USANA True Health Foundation Board of Trustees decides how and where funds from the Area of Greatest Need will be used. Giving to the Area of Greatest Need Fund allows for the greatest flexibility for the Board to determine and meet critical human needs.
