Nwarueze disclosed that since inception, over 500 Nigerians have enjoyed international travels to diverse countries of the world through the HealthGarde empowerment strategy.
According to additional delivery from the company’s Chief Operations Officer, COO, Lovelyn Bassey, HealthGarde has grown over time to become a major source of financial or social succour by offering legitimate health products distribution network through which many families have escaped poverty, even while reaping bountiful health benefits.
She noted that a woman liberated from the shackles of poverty would find opportunities to ventilate useful public opinion as a stakeholder and not a spectator in the scheme of global affairs.
HealthGarde has remained one group helping Nigerians to scale despite the prevalent harsh economic realities.
Through the opportunities latent in the organisation’s scheme, members of different cadres have had opportunities to travel to different countries of the world via an all-expense-paid arrangement!
