Commenting on the occasion Mr. William S. Pinckney, Chairman, Amway Opportunity Foundation, said ?My heart fills with joy watching the young children getting benefitted. Amway has been one of the prominent companies in the country making a difference to the lives of the under privileged and would continue to extend its support to the society at large.?

About Amway One by One Campaign: The Amway One by One Campaign for Children was launched in 2003, with its focus to help children in need. Amway distributors and employees have impacted 10 million lives by volunteering for hundreds of projects. They include providing kitchen facilities to help prepare nutritive meals for children in rural China, supporting welfare centers in South Korea and building homes for families in Latin America.
