GRENOBLE, France, October 13, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Regulatory news:
Spartoo (ISIN: FR00140043Y1 – mnemonic: ALSPT), one of Europe’s leading online fashion retailers, today announces its support of Amref Health Africa for the seventh year in a row.
Amref Health Africa1 is a leading African public health NGO whose mission is to strengthen health systems in Africa through the training of dedicated professionals. For more than 15 years, Amref has worked to ensure equitable access to healthcare on the continent, in particular for women and children, through distance training for healthcare professionals, telemedicine and computerized patient monitoring. .
Its Cellal e Kisal program aims to reduce pre- and post-natal risks for mothers and children, as 80% of maternal deaths worldwide occur in sub-Saharan Africa.2. For 7 years, Spartoo has supported this initiative by selling solidarity products (this year, a baby bib with an illustration of an elephant and its calf), the profits of which are donated to the NGO, and by calling for donations directly on its e-commerce site (https://www.spartoo.com/operation-amref.php). To date, this commitment has enabled the launch of training programs in Senegal and CÃ´te d’Ivoire which have directly benefited more than 4,400 midwives and nurses.
Boris Saragaglia, co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Spartoo, declared: “We are particularly proud to renew our support for the Amref initiative, which over the years has become an essential pillar of Spartoo’s SRI strategy. We invite you to participate in this operation by following this link: https://www.spartoo.com/operation-amref.php. Since the beginning of our engagement, thousands of midwives and nurses have been trained to care for women and children, allowing them to live in good conditions. Sub-Saharan Africa still has the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world, deaths that could be avoided if more staff were trained locally. It is the responsibility of companies like ours to engage in the development of concrete solutions in the most disadvantaged countries.“
