What we do

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.
