Brazil’s street children are the forgotten youth of our modern culture. Cypress Systems supports Hope Unlimited, a non-profit that gives abandoned and abused children and youth a safe place to restore their lives. Though Brazil is a country of great riches, it harbors devastatingly horrific slums where children are either left on the streets or are living in destructive and violent home situations. To survive, thousands of children are victims of drug use, sexual abuse, prostitution, and organized crime. This non-profit, largely supported by Americans, has made a difference by giving thousands of children a safe place for food, shelter and clothing; love and spiritual guidance, as well as education and job skills.

Our Kenyan Kids nonprofit supports children and youth affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS. Since 2008, Cypress has donated SelenoExcell to the mothers, aunties, sisters and grandmothers in the communities supported by Our Kenyan Kids. This daily supplement of high selenium yeast has helped these women return to a state of wellness, which allows them to care and provide for their families. It is well known that HIV/AIDS robs the body of selenium, which prevents the body from producing, glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant. This simple act of providing missing nutrient to women with HIV/AIDS is allowing families to thrive and children to grow up with the support of caring women. Cypress is humbled that SelenoExcell is making such a big difference in the lives of these women and children.
Cypress Systems is committed to supporting men’s preventive disease and wellness initiatives. It’s a key component of our nonprofit’s mission to reduce disease and suffering in the United States and around the globe. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming year.
