Today marks World Health Day 2021, recognised every year on 7 April to help raise awareness about the health and well-being of people around the world. This day is part of the World Health Organization (WHO) year-long campaign for action to eliminate health inequalities, under this year’s theme of ‘building a fairer, healthier world’.
COVID-19 has hit all countries hard, but its impact has been harshest on communities already in need. The drivers of health inequity need to be addressed today, to ensure a safer and healthier tomorrow.
Now more than ever, we’re proud to support the health and well-being of families in Australia through our charity, The One Box. With so many Australian families unable to afford to put nutritious food on the table, The One Box is a much-needed helping hand.
The program provides a free weekly box of fresh produce and staples to families in need, helping to alleviate some of their financial stress of filling school lunchboxes and making family meals. The One Box also increases opportunities for families to engage and be supported by staff and other members of their school and local community, facilitating opportunities for positive community relationships to be developed.
