We have been working with Welthungerhilfe since 2018. The organization stands for development aid and is committed to various projects to fight poverty and hunger in developing countries. At the same time, and this is particularly important to us, educational opportunities are improved and better self-sufficiency in the respective country is sought through the transfer of knowledge in areas such as agriculture and hygiene.
We want to give something back and provide help where help is needed.
Therefore, for every InnoNature product sold, a school mea is made possible for children in Burundi (Africa).
We can make a difference together! Change starts with yourself and, above all, we are strong together.
56% of all children in Burundi suffer from growth development problems due to malnutrition. This is the highest value of all countries in which Welthungerhilfe evaluates data.
A nutrient-rich diet is a basic requirement for a happy, healthy and self-determined life for the children. Constant hunger gnaws at the ability to concentrate, which of course has a negative effect on performance.
In this blog article, we have summarized for you how the cooperation works and what the local conditions are.
And because all the many important questions should best be answered by an expert, we were allowed to interview Christian Stark from Welthungerhilfe. Here we go!
Dear Christian, what is the current situation in Burundi?
Burundi is still suffering from the aftermath of the armed conflict that tortured the population for over a decade until 2005. More than 10% of the population does not have enough to eat, many more do not have a balanced diet.
The consequences are carried mainly by the children: 56% of all children suffer from growth retardation due to malnutrition. This is the highest value of all countries in which Welthungerhilfe evaluates data.
And how exactly can you help the children in Burundi?
Malnutrition is a lasting hindrance to the development of a country. A malnourished child can concentrate poorly, has little strength and stamina, and is more susceptible to disease. A lack of education often means remaining trapped in poverty for life.
Welthungerhilfe offers nutritious school meals for children. As a result, they are more concentrated and more receptive in school and grow up without this hindrance.
All of our projects are regularly checked by independent external experts and an internal auditing department. Welthungerhilfe implements the measures on site either itself or together with long-term local partners. The employees on site are in constant contact with the population. Like this, we can respond to people's needs and use funds where they are most urgently needed.
We are very happy about the cooperation and are happy about the chance to make a difference, together with Welthungerhilfe and your help!
With every product you order from us, you are not only doing something good for yourself, but also making an impactful contribution to the important work of Welthungerhilfe - exactly where it matters!
