Health is one of our most important assets. Unfortunately, its importance is often overshadowed by lifestyle demands. Many people’s immune system is dangerously compromised – the statistics on diseases provide clear evidence.
Many people remain oblivious, and lives continue to be unnecessarily lost. Not to mention the personal trauma involved physically, emotionally and financially, as well as the healthcare burden borne by countries.
Health Partners goes to the root to address this widespread poor health – with wholistic nutrition. It is our intention to outreach to as many as possible to share information, demonstrate solutions and urge collective action.
Although registered as an enterprise, our mission to help save lives comes first, regardless of race, religion or social class.
We are open to partnering with individuals, non-profit organisations, corporations, and with the government. It is in the synergy of partnership that more can be done for our collective future.
We hope consciousness will expand beyond personal or corporate profits, to care for more people, communities and the planet.
Health Partners was founded by two long-time health activists who have devoted many thousands of hours to volunteer work. They work for the health of humans, the planet and our fellow animals (especially farmed animals).
