Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, it seems unlikely that we will be able to have any events for the remainder of the academic year. All of the events we have planned (closet sale, movie screenings, etc.) will be rescheduled for next year - so hopefully we'll see each other then! However, as UNICEF student volunteers we still want to raise awareness about the mission of UNICEF and support our 2020 fundraising project - Maman Lumière in Burundi. In order to do this, we need your help. Our volunteers have been hard at work thinking of ways to transition our normal in-person activities into digital ones (as well as sharing with you some online activities from other student teams!). All of our virtual activities will be done on a donation basis, so please feel free to support our project in any way you can (even a share helps!). What can your donation do? 1 share: Spread the mission and work of UNICEF with your friends! € 2,50: Nutrient-rich sprinkles for one child € 15,-: organisation of 1 cooking class. € 20,-: organisation of 2 malnutrition screening sessions. € 50,-: training of one Maman Lumière. You can find more information about the project on our social media, or right below: 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.
