Guaranteed vaccines for children in Mozambique

Guaranteed vaccines for children in Mozambique

Every day, 18.000 children under 5 die prematurely because of diseases which could be prevented or treated with vaccines but, unfortunately, in development countries haven’t access to adequate vaccines.

Vaccination is one of the best ways to guarantee to children a healthy life since the beginning because with vaccines many diseases can be prevented. Vaccines are a key tool for the communities’ development and are the most-effective way to save lives.

Obra Social “la Caixa” and Gavi have been teamed up with the aim to help fund the necessary vaccines to protect children living in the poorest countries. Thanks to Vaccine Alliance, until the end of 2014, they have been able to immunize 500 million children averting millions of premature deaths.

The first cause of death in Mozambique is pneumonia. Thanks to customers, partners, employers and companies who collaborated with the alliance between Obra Social “la Caixa” and Gavi, more than 300.000 children from Mozambique were vaccinated.

6 months ago, Promofarma began to collaborate with Obra Social “la Caixa” and Gavi and offered to its customers the possibility to make a donation to guarantee the use of vaccines in Mozambique. Today we are glad to announce that thanks to the solidarity of Promofarma customers we have funded a new project.

With 4.574€, vaccines will be introduced in Mozambique in order to facilitate its access to the population. In addition, the markets will be able adapted for vaccines and other immunization-related products. With the help of Promofarma customers and, thanks to the fact that Obra Social “la Caixa” will quadruplicate each euro donated, 2.287 children from Mozambique will have access to adequate vaccines to guarantee them a healthy life.

Thanks again to Promofarma for being an ecommerce with a cause and thanks to its clients because thanks to their solidarity a new project has been funded. We encourage you to continue generating a positive social impact collaborating with the new project of Promofarma and Amics de la gent gran.
