Ripple collaborates with Madonna’s Raising Malawi to financially aid children in need
Ripple has recently entered into a partnership with Madonna’s Raising Malawi to support the underprivileged children of this nation. The organisation established by Madonna is a non-profitable one that teams up with Ripple for the cause of fund raising for the vulnerable children. Ripple has given a statement of matching all the public donations directed towards this noble cause.
Focusing on the organisation, Raising Malawi is established under a joint initiative by the famous American artist, Madonna and screenwriter Michael Berg. The fundamental purpose behind setting up the organisation is supporting the orphans in the African nations. Reports suggest that in this region, rate of susceptible children is extremely high. This is due to the loss of a single or both parents, of almost one million Malawi children, suffering from HIV AIDS.
Recently Madonna has made an announcement stating that she would raise an amount of $60,000 for Raising Malawi. According to her statement, “I have an unwavering commitment to providing vulnerable children with a loving home. For my birthday, I can think of no better gift than connecting my global family with this beautiful country and the children who need our help the most.”
The organisation since its establishment in 2006 is dedicated towards the cause of supplying the necessities to nearly 10,000 children. The lists of necessary requirements involve providing healthcare services, scholarships and educational infrastructure. With the establishment of Raising Malawi, the nation receives its intensive care unit and first ever paediatric surgery.
The duration of the campaign is one month ranging from 30th July to 31st August, 2018. In this context, Business Operations’ SVP of the organisation, eric van Miltenburg has commented, “We’re honored to be a part of Raising Malawi’s amazing work with some of the world’s most underserved children and are grateful to our investors at Sound Ventures for making the introduction to us and this important cause.”
The team Ripple has further made a statement on this new collaboration for a cause, stating,“Ripple and its executive team care deeply about giving back and eliminating barriers that keep marginalized populations from being a part of our global community. This means fostering programs for financial inclusion, improving access to fundamental human services, empowering teachers and supporting primary education, and promoting environmental literacy and conservation.”
Facebook, an extremely popular social media platform has a role in this noble initiative. From 30th July, itself Ripple has planned to contribute the same amount as received in public donation. This would be conducted by leveraging the Facebook platform to provide direct sponsorship to the children.
