Every year, over 400 UNICEF student volunteers choose a project they feel passionate about and want to support. This year, we are raising money to combat malnutrition in over 1.2 million Burundian children under the age of five.

Usually, our events and fundraising activities happen mainly offline. But, because of the ongoing corona pandemic, we’ve had to cancel all of our events. However, it is important that while dealing with the corona crisis, we do not forget about these children, who very much need our continues support. To continue raising money, we have launched this Help Mee page, where people can donate to the Maman Lumière project online.

Below you can see how different students are coming into action and you can support them!

 

The Maman Lumière project
Burundi is a very fertile African country. But, at the same time, 56% of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished because they are structurally under-fed with good nutrients. The consequences of this are serious and (often) irreversible. But how can this happen? Even though most of the Burundian population live in the countryside where they are self-sufficient, many mothers have never learned about the importance of vitamins and minerals for their health and that of their children. To combat malnutrition, UNICEF is deploying mothers of well-fed children while living in the same circumstances as mothers of malnourished children, to teach other mothers on the importance of nutrition.
