Run for MSF and save malnourished children
Médecins Sans Frontières as the humanitarian partner of the ING Night Marathon Luxembourg in 2013, proposes to transform one of the greatest sports challenges into a solidarity challenge. Unite for a common goal: to save children suffering from malnutrition in Guidan Roumdji, Niger.
Register with the ING Night Marathon Luxembourg and collect at least €100 of donations for Médecins Sans Frontières. Organise a fair, a pastry sale, a raffle, a football match, or launch a series of crazy challenges.
MSF is at your side to help you with this challenge, follow all our advice and hints and use the donations collection tools on our Internet page: www.msf.lu.
And if you wish to bear the MSF colors, while running or training, a special MSF runner T-shirt will be offered to each runner having collected at least 100€.
Nothing would be possible without you! Your implication, your support, your commitment for this solidarity challenge are key points for malnourished children in Guidan Roumdji, Niger.
We invite you to take part of this extraordinary human adventure!

Médecins Sans Frontières project in Niger
Every year, Niger is confronted with chronic nutrition crises causing high infant mortality. MSF has implemented preventive and curative modalities in paediatric and nutrition programmes like in Guidan Roumdji in the Maradi region where, throughout the year, a nutrition programme provides treatment for children under five. The objective is to reduce the mortality and morbidity rate caused by malnutrition.
The implementation of these health centres makes these effective and preventive treatment techniques against malnutrition and infant diseases accessible to all children. The cure rate is estimated at approximately 90% and since 2006 the infant mortality has even been reduced by more than 30% in Niger. More than 104.000 children suffering from severe malnutrition have been treated in 2011 in these health centres.
