About Hamba Health

We were created to enjoy the earth and live a full life. My husband (Arnu) and I (Amorette, or in short Ammie) got married 2 years ago and during this lifetime adventure we embarked on we discovered that we strongly believe that life should be enjoyed with the people you love. We also discovered a passion for helping people by suppliyng them with the necessary support to be able to make that which seems impossible a reality. We believe that enjoying life entails lots of adventures in nature and uplifting fellowship with family and friends around good food. Because we value people and their wellbeing, we decided to start a new adventure named Hamba Health. We discovered a desire to equip the everyday person with insight to make health-conscious decisions that is easy to comprehend and to supply people with the products necessary to apply this insight in their daily mealtimes.

Hamba Health is a platform that we want to use to make this dream a reality. Our store is filled up with a variety of health products that is locally sourced and supports the community entrepreneurs. We aim to deliver these products at affordable prices so that you can indulge yourself in healthy food without having to rip a hole in your pocket.

The second service we aim to deliver is through our blog and social media platforms which are used to promote products and help you better understand how to lead a life that is full and healthy.

Lastly, we believe that healthy living is a journey that requires the input from a whole community. Therefore, Hamba Health wants to invite you to become part of this family by selling your products on our store and giving your advice and feedback on our social media platforms.

We invite you to embark on this adventure with us and grow into a community that makes health conscious choices that does not limit your life but expands your horizons to be able to live a life of abundance.
