Fighting malnutrition alongside Action contre la Faim in Madagascar
Since 2016, Celside Insurance has been supporting the NGO Action contre la Faim France [Action Against Hunger France] as part of the CASAN’s (Centre d’Accompagnement Social et d’Appui Nutritionnel [Social and Nutritional Support Centre]) project and treat malnutrition among families in severely deprived neighbourhoods in Madagascar’s capital Antananarivo.
An initial financial support of €300,000 over 3 years made it possible to cover part of the expenses necessary for the smooth running of the centre, which cared for 1,730 children under 5 years of age and 319 pregnant and nursing women suffering from acute malnutrition between 2016 and 2018.
In January 2020, we renewed our support to amount of €1 million over the next three years. The aid provided by Celside Insurance will thus make it possible to strengthen the centre’s capacities in the areas of screening and treatment of malnutrition, access towater and improved hygiene, psychological support for the population, the fight against poverty and assistance in the creation of income-generating activities.
