Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) recently announced a $1 million donation to Concern Worldwide, an international humanitarian organization dedicated to the reduction of suffering in the world's poorest countries. The donation will fund the creation and implementation of the Lifesaving Education and Assistance to Farmers (LEAF) Project, which will provide immediate and longer-term responses to chronic malnutrition and hunger for people living in extreme poverty in Kenya and Ethiopia. The project is predicted to directly benefit nearly 50,000 individuals.
“At ADM, we fundamentally believe that providing access to nutrition has the power to solve many of the world’s challenges,” said Juan Luciano, ADM Chairman and CEO. “In partnership with Concern Worldwide, we are unlocking the power of nature to save lives today, and to enrich them tomorrow. We’re hopeful that by leveraging our collective knowledge, expertise and perspectives, we can help make a difference in the dire nutrition situation for thousands of residents in Ethiopia and Kenya, while being good stewards of the environment.” Learn more here.
