THE WHAT? Beiersdorf Ghana has teamed up with Food For All Africa (FFAA) to supply nutritious meals to school children and their families through a school feeding programme, according to a report by Ghana Web.
THE DETAILS Said to be adaptable due to the unpredictability of the pandemic, schools not currently under the Government’s School Feeding Programme will benefit from the initiative.
Beiersdorf is also boosting FFAA’s capacity to help food security resilience as part of the COVID-19 emergency and recovery efforts.
THE WHY? The partnership is part of the personal care giant’s Care Beyond Skin campaign, and is set to last 12 months.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra, Olivier Bodson, Country Manager of Beiersdorf Ghana, said, “Food banks are powerful interventions, which positively change lives and communities. They are an interconnected lifeline to the hungry and equip communities to feed themselves. We at Beiersdorf recognise the importance of strengthening food banks as it fosters resilience and enhances the community’s capability to fight hunger long term.”
