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 2017, the HEINEKEN Africa Foundation approved 10 new projects totalling an investment of €1 million. Four of these projects will provide access to safe drinking water to communities in Burundi, DRC, Kenya, and Sierra Leone, with the aim to benefit up to 82,000 people. Other projects will support the construction and renovation of health centres, purchase of mobile clinics and training of medical staff.
Below a few examples of the projects we supported over the years.
