What we do

Since 2007 the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation has supported 128 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 2019, the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation approved 7 new projects totalling an investment of almost €720,000. They include the renovation of mother and child health departments at health centres in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Lubumbashi, DRC, and equipment for a neonatal intensive care unit in Benin City, Nigeria.
Three more projects will bring drinking water to communities in Burundi and Sierra Leone.

Below a few examples of the projects we supported over the years.
