HealthGarde holds annual stakeholders convention in Lagos



HealthGarde International has held its third year anniversary, in Lagos on Saturday, January 28, with attendees cutting across Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda, aiming at boosting the company’s market penetration for 2023.

The network marketing company is an African company dedicated to improving people’s quality of life by creating wealth through health and at the same time promoting physical wellness.

In a media chat with Freelanews, the chief operating officer of the company, Lovelyn Bassey, stated that the convention is a way to reward top achievers.

“Every year, we have an international convention, where we recognise top achievers in our company from the world. We look at the body of work they’ve done within one year and then reward the top performers,” Bassey said.


While speaking further on the importance of HealthGarde in an African society, Bassey stated that the company also targets self-sufficiency for women as one of its focal points.

“One of the biggest messages that we try to send across as a company is that women have a voice and can also bring the bacon home. They don’t have to be a burden to their husbands but a partner by also contributing in the home. This way, the husbands don’t need to drop dead by overworking themselves to cater for the financial needs of their families alone.”

On her part, the chief executive officer of the company, Nneka Nwarueze, revealed that HealthGarde is neither a ponzi nor a get-rich-quick schemes.

“HealthGarde is a networking marketing of international standard and founded by a Nigerian in 2019. As a matter of fact, it is the first international network marketing company by an African woman. I’ve been in network marketing for over 20years with majority of those years spent representing SwissGarde for 17years until it ceased operation.

“In order to provide an alternative for entrepreneurs, who depended on the business SwissGarde for sustenance when it closed shop, we started HealthGarde,” Nwarueze revealed.


The founder also disclosed that aside from the empowerment provided by the network marketing company, an affiliated foundation has successfully empowered over 300 women.

“HealthGarde is also the first network marketing company owned by a Nigerian that has a foundation. And with it, we have been able to empower over 300 women on various programmes.

“Currently, we have four university graduates and about 15 pupils in primary schools, who graduated through our scholarship programme and are currently on one respectively.

“However, our network marketing company is not a ponzi scheme nor a scam, which is one of the reasons we’ve been expanding in the last three years of operations. I can authoritatively say that we have bases in South Africa, Uganda, Ghana and United States, while we already have our eyes set on Cameroon.”

The founder also spoke on the uniqueness of HealthGarde products.


“Our products are exceptional as they’re non-synthetic and we know their origin; they are mainly from African herbs and pocket-friendly.”

The company’s brand ambassador, a Zimbabwean-South African retired professional rugby union player and current world champion, Tendai Mtawarira, said he provided a balance for a company predominantly seen as a woman organisation.

“The services rendered by HealthGarde shouldn’t be seen as only for the female gender. Through my endorsement, men are encouraged to come onboard too and make money selling wellness,” Mtawarira submitted.

According to HealthGarde, the manufacturing of their products have received International Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) registration which verifies that proper methods, equipment, and controls is in place to produce the highest quality dietary supplement products.

King Charles makes first appearance on special stamps



The first special stamps bearing the head of King Charles are being released by the Royal Mail, with his silhouette appearing on a set showing popular garden flowers.

These are likely to be the first stamps showing the King’s profile that will be widely seen by the public. This replaces a design showing the Queen’s head used continuously on commemorative stamps since 1968. Last month saw the final issue of a new set of stamps with the Queen’s head.

David Gold, of Royal Mail, said using pictures of flowers for this landmark set of stamps reflected the fact that the King was a “passionate gardener”.

The Royal Mail had previously revealed the design for new regular first and second-class stamps showing King Charles. But those new stamps will not begin to appear regularly on letters until stocks run out of existing stamps showing the late Queen’s head.

It is not expected that the new King Charles versions of ordinary first and class stamps will start to be seen until next month.

Paulina Porizkova, 57, addresses ‘naysayers’ after posting lingerie photo: ‘Sexy has no expiration date’



Paulina Porizkova is standing up to “naysayers” who left “unkind comments” about a body-baring pic she shared on social media.

The 57-year-old modeling legend posted an image March 6 on Instagram that showed her laughing while posing in a lacy black bra and panties, which she paired with tall black boots and a long red cardigan sweater.

In her caption, the Czech-born model poked fun at cultural stereotypes about women in their late 50s. “Almost 58? Grandma, knitting, fireplace? Check, check, check, check! I’m the proud step grandma of five,” she wrote. “I’ve knitted the sweater I’m wearing — and yes, I’m standing by a fireplace.

“So this is what almost 58 looks like for me today,” she added.


Though some social media users praised the model’s boldness and beauty, others left harsher comments about her appearance and accused her of seeking attention and being “obsessed” with her looks.

Porizkova followed up by sharing screenshots of some of the worst insults, alongside a lengthy message about why she feels it’s important to represent older women who feel sexy.

“I post a barely clothed photo of myself, it gets a lot of attention, and then come the comments. Most of you are wonderfully supportive and understand what I’m trying to do in representing an older woman as still sexy and viable, and certainly not invisible,” she wrote.

“Then there are the naysayers,” she continued.

Porizkova went on to say that many critics accused her of “needing validation.”


“I do need to be noticed in order not to be invisible,” she wrote, adding that she might also be accused of “promoting the objectification of women.”

Porizkova also called out critics who told her she doesn’t have the right to say she’s representing women her age.

“The comments that I like the least however, are that because I’m tall and slim, I do not have the right to represent women my age because I don’t look like a typical woman my age,” she wrote.

“I’m not trying to represent all women of my age. How could I? How could anyone? Don’t we all look different and isn’t that where our beauty lies? In our uniqueness?” she asked.

Porizkova concluded her message by saying how disappointed she was by the comments, which she perceived to be written by those with “insecurities.”


“What is truly sad here are the obvious insecurities of women who cannot find space to love themselves for who they are. For what their bodies can do. For what they can feel. Instead, they will compare, feel wanting and ashamed for not measuring up, and turn around to shame those who made them feel this way,” she wrote.

She added several hashtags to her post, including #SexyHasNoExpirationDate and #BetweenJLoAndBettyWhite.

It’s hardly the first time Porizkova has shared an intimate photo of herself on Instagram. The mom of two has posted many previous photos of herself wearing swimsuits and lingerie, and shared a topless photo of herself to celebrate the new year in January.

Supreme Court Rules Against Same-Sex Marriage



A Supreme Court in Panama has ruled that same-sex marriage is not a human right and the country therefore does not have to recognise such unions, according to a judgement published Wednesday.

The court had been considering the issue since 2016, following several appeals from same-sex couples claiming the Central American country’s family code was unconstitutional as it only recognizes marriages between a man and a woman.

“There is a reality, and it is that, until now, the right to equal marriage is no more than an aspiration, even though a legitimate one for the groups involved, and it does not fall into the category of a human right or a fundamental right,” said the court, in the ruling dated February 16.

The same-sex couples who filed suit were attempting to have marriages that took place in other countries be legally recognized in Panama.


The court, however, said, “no matter how many changes happen in reality,” for now gay marriage “lacks conventional and constitutional recognition.”

The court added the family code was “objectively and reasonably justified in the general interests of giving precedence to those unions capable of establishing families, giving continuity to the human species, and therefore, to society.”

The Catholic Church, which opposes same-sex marriage, holds significant political influence in Panama.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled in 2018 that same-sex couples are entitled to the same marriage rights as opposite-sex couples, in a binding judgement that applied to all of the court’s members, including Panama.

However, Costa Rica remains the only Central American country to recognize same-sex marriages.

With the February 16 ruling, the Panamanian justice system “has rejected the recognition of the dignity of same-sex couples and their right to build a family in Panama,” Ivan Chanis, president of the gay rights organisation Foundation Iguales, told AFP.
