Malnutrition, UNICEF launches fundraising campaign

UNICEF Italy launches a fundraising campaign with a solidarity number 45525, from November 9 to December 31, 2020, to treat and protect over 190 million malnourished children under the age of 5 worldwide, including 47 million suffering from acute malnutrition.

The pandemic from COVID-19 could worsen this already critical situation: it is estimated that, in the absence of timely intervention, an additional 6.7 million children under the age of 5 could suffer from acute malnutrition during the first year of the pandemic.

To help malnourished children, it is possible to donate through solidarity number 45525 with a simple SMS from your mobile phone or with a landline call:

• 2 euro to 45525 with SMS sent from WINDTRE, TIM, Vodafone, Iliad, PosteMobile, Coop Voce, Tiscali mobile phones;
• 5 euro to 45525 with a call from the fixed network TWT, Convergenze, PosteMobile;
• 5 and 10 euros to 45525 with a call from a fixed network TIM, Vodafone, WINDTRE, Fastweb and

"To combat malnutrition, UNICEF guarantees simple and low-cost interventions throughout the world, such as milk and therapeutic foods with a high protein content, vitamins and minerals that can restore weight and strength to severely debilitated infants and children. Interventions that can make the difference between life and death. The funds raised will support UNICEF programs to combat child malnutrition in Africa and Asia; part of the funds raised will also be used to help vulnerable families living in our country, particularly affected by the crisis caused by COVID-19 ", declared President of UNICEF Italy Francesco Samengo.

Some examples of what we can do with your donation:

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili – A Super Food for a Super Cause

When ONE.org asked me to help raise awareness about their campaign
to fight chronic malnutrition, using the humble sweet
potato, I had one important question…if I agreed, would I get some kind of tote

When I was informed there was no tote bag, I decided to
check out their info anyway, and I’m very glad I did. While I was shocked to learn
that millions of children die each year from malnutrition, it was heartening to
learn what a huge difference this delicious “super-food” could make.

To help spread the word, I offer up this colorful, and very
tasty, roasted sweet potato and black bean chili. I really enjoyed this 100%
vegetarian version, and the extra step of roasting the potatoes not only
concentrated the sweet, earthy flavors, but gave the starchy chunks a
marvelously meaty texture.

Anyway, I’m going to sign off so I can go add “Helped Bono fight
childhood malnutrition”
to my resume, but I sincerely hope you take a minute and check out
One.org for more information about this sweet potato campaign, as well as sign the nutrition petition. Thank you, and as always, enjoy!
