Eli & Amalia is committed to helping disadvantaged and underprivileged children in poverty-stricken areas around the globe. Fabio and Nadine are parents themselves and so obviously this is a cause very close to their hearts.
A percentage of all profit from Eli & Amalia clothing sales is donated to sister company, V&C Foundation.
V&C Foundation is a registered UK charity, committed to helping children living in poverty. Their goals are to tackle child poverty, support education and build child futures. Funded by the fashion world, their mission statement is to ‘take from fashion to brighten futures.’
Thanks also to our support, last Christmas 2020, V&C Foundation managed to sponsor clothing for the charity “Mind the Gap Africa” and all the children in their village in Zimbabwe. They also created an heart-warming animation to promote “Mind the Gap Africa” and raise awareness to their cause
We are very proud to have contributed to the creation of such a fantastic video (below – now also on Mind the Gap Africa’s home page) showcasing the struggles these children in Zimbabwe go through every day
And here is when all the children in Mind the Gap receved their Christmas present. Very emotional to see our funds went to a good cause
The reality of child poverty
‘There were 4.3 million children living in poverty in the UK in 2019-20. That’s 31 per cent of children, or nine in a classroom of 30’ (Child Poverty Action Group)
‘Hunger leaves children vulnerable to infection, disease and death – nearly 1/4 worldwide suffer permanent damage due to poor nutrition. Poverty and rising prices mean many families can’t afford food while climate change threatens more droughts and food crises.’ (Save the Children)
Children who grow up impoverished often lack the food, sanitation, shelter, health care and education they need to survive and thrive. Across the world, about 1 billion children are multidimensionally poor, meaning they lack necessities as basic as nutrition or clean water. Some 150 million additional children have been plunged into multidimensional poverty due to COVID-19..’ (UNICEF)
