The programmes, geared towards improving healthcare and access to fresh drinking water and food, will benefit more than 230,000 people in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger.

Inditex has donated 1 million euros to the collaboration on several humanitarian aid projects with Médicos Sin Fronteras and the Red Cross in the African region of the Sahel, where more than half the population lives in extreme poverty and faces major obstacles to accessing healthcare and proper nutrition.

In Mali, where a severe political crisis has forced 300,000 people to leave their homes, Inditex is working since January on a healthcare project led by Médicos Sin Fronteras. The project aims to improve healthcare and expand free access to community health clinics, especially among pregnant women and children under the age of five. The project will also launch a system for monitoring disease outbreaks and providing care in health emergencies.

Inditex’s work with the Red Cross includes programmes in two other countries in the region: Burkina Faso and Niger. In Burkina Faso, the campaign aims to improve potable water infrastructure to ensure access to safe drinking water in 12 rural communities, and will distribute basic hygiene kits in refugee camps and promote community education on these issues.

The aid in Niger focuses on strengthening the population's ability to overcome food access problems by bolstering agricultural and livestock production and creating cereal storehouses. Additionally, the project will distribute hygiene and sanitation materials to local health clinics and sponsor training campaigns on food issues, with the goal of reducing childhood malnutrition.
