Obra Social la Caixa and the Food Banks have finished “No child without a milk moustache” campaign to bring milk to all households, especially those who have special needs.

Promofarma has been one of the companies who have made it possible. Thanks to its efforts, 76 kids who are at risk of exclusion and their families will have access to milk, and cover their daily needs – of calcium, vitamins, protein and phosphorus.

Now, #Ningún niño sin comida (“#no child without food) is the new challenge for Promofarma users and it’s aimed to help refugees kids in Ethiopia, the African country that more refugees receive, to be well nourished.

Did you know that rates of underweight in children under 5 years throughout the country are at 28% and severe malnutrition rates exceed 44% for children of that age?

The campaign, impulsed by UNHCR (The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), wants to improve the nutritional status of 11.323 Sudanese-Southsudanese refugee children under 5 years and residents in 4 refugee camps of Ethiopia, and stabilize its morbidity index.

With 4.000 €, 720 infants younger than 6 months will be treated against chronic malnutrition with the distribution of nutritional milk in therapeutic feeding centers located in refugee camps.
