Since 2007 the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation has supported 111 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 2018, the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation approved 7 new projects totalling an investment of almost €700,000. They include the construction of two maternal and neonatal wings in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Bukavu, DRC, and three projects bringing drinking water to communities in Burundi and Ethiopia.
Below a few examples of the projects we supported over the years.
