Van den Bosch extends UNICEF cooperation

The cooperation between UNICEF The Netherlands and Van den Bosch has been extended for two years. UNICEF supports children’s rights throughout the world. Since 2011 Van den Bosch Transporten has supported UNICEF in achieving its goals. Over the next two years the cooperation is specifically aimed at fighting malnutrition on Mozambique.

As a leading player in the transport of bulk products Van den Bosch Transporten plays an important part in the supply chain of raw materials. “A large part of our organization is involved in the transport of bulk products used as raw material for the food we consume in our everyday life. This is why we have chosen to make a clear “food” connection”, explains Peter van den Bosch. “The global hunger problem is cause for great concern within our organization. We cannot solve this problem on our own but we can certainly take our responsibility by giving a serious contributing to solving this problem.”

Anniversary campaign
Over the past year a campaign was initiated to raise extra money for UNICEF. “This year we are celebrating our fiftieth anniversary,” explains Van den Bosch. “The motto and aim of our anniversary year was: we have been in existence for fifty year and so we are aiming for fifty thousand euro. Thanks to the support of our partners and employees we have more than achieved our goal and we are very proud.”
Part of our fleet pays tribute to the cooperation. “The UN treaty for children’s rights celebrates its 25 anniversary this year. Several of our tank trailers show a large UNICEF sticker drawing extra attention for the cause of children’s’ rights. This allows us to reach a large audience as our fleet is working throughout The Netherlands.”

Support for Mozambique
The cooperation for the next two years is focusing especially on fighting malnutrition in Mozambique where it is the main cause of child mortality. Together with the local government, UNICEF is developing and implementing a national policy for healthcare of women and children. Also, UNICEF is working actively to improve the access to quality healthcare for vulnerable children and their family. Furthermore, UNICEF will continue to support the Health Weeks.
