Since 2007 the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation has supported over 83 different projects focussing on health and water. Over the years we gained an expertise in projects that focus on Mother & Child and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
Especially Sub-Saharan African countries are lacking behind when it comes to maternal and child mortality and the access to clean and safe drinking water. Both areas are essential in starting a healthy life.
In 2015 the Foundation committed EUR 1,35 million to 15 different projects, including 3 additional projects dedicated to the recovery of the Ebola struck Sierra Leone.
In July 2016 the Foundation donated in collaboration with HEINEKEN Ethiopia 5 million ETB (EUR 207,000) to the Ethiopian Red Cross to help the drought victims in Ethiopia.
Below a few examples of the projects we supported.
