Cooperation between Doneck and CARE Luxembourg provides long-term aid!
In October – despite the Corona crisis – the medium-sized European printing ink manufacturer signed a new cooperation contract with CARE Luxembourg. Aid now goes to one of the least developed countries in the world, Chad. In Chad, 31.9% of children under 5 years are seriously malnourished and therefore also underdeveloped. CARE will improve this situation for the children in the long term with a generous donation from Doneck.
In the Wadi Fira region in Chad (east) an increase in poor harvests is leading to food supply shortages. The result is widespread malnutrition of children. Malnutrition means that the children have a weak immune system and are susceptible to disease. This puts them at extreme risk in the current situation. Each year, therefore, CARE examines the children in this region to spot malnutrition early and provide treatment. Together with the village council, CARE is using this sponsorship to build 10 nutrition schools in the region in Chad. With the aid of CARE, nutritional behaviour can be changed and improved in the long term.
In 2018 CARE developed and implemented this nutrition project very successfully in Nigeria in an exclusive partnership with Doneck.
"Based on the very successful project in Nigeria in 2018 we have once again chosen this approach to tackle hunger. To aid in one of the poorest regions in the world makes great sense to us. The positive feedback to this nutrition project in Nigeria also convinced us.", Arndt Breitbach, Managing Director Doneck Network
"The aid given in Nigeria in 2018 was the first project that we could implement, thanks to the support of Doneck. We are really proud of the unique results which we have achieved together in the fight against hunger in infants." Frédéric Haupert, Managing director CARE Luxembourg. "What we are particularly happy about is that we have uncovered a deep energy and conviction for this social engagement within our management and our workforce. We feel very proud about what Doneck and CARE are achieving together. We are now putting this successful approach to work in Chad, to fight hunger in infants in the long term."
