Action contre la Faim is an international NGO created in 1979 to eradicate hunger in the word. LINKBYNET has supported them with its collaborators by salary round-off which allowed us to donate 9000€ since 2014. For the past 10 years, Action Contre la Faim organizes challenges again hunger in several cities in France which became a big event such as at La Défense having more than 100 companies participating. This 29 June 2017, Action Contre la Faim organised the first edition of the Challenge on the square of the "Stade de France" in Saint-Denis of which Robert PIRES was the official sponsor. LINKBYNET, of course, was present as well as 5 companies of the country.
LINKBYNET’s collaborators have been involved and mobilized with 20 registred linkies. The D-day, 16 linkies have strived to fight against hunger in the world : five runners have covered a distance accumulating to 67 km, a 7 km walk and ten Zumba dancers 630 minutes of zumba ! Their commitment enabled a donation of 2885€ from LINKBYNET to d’Action contre la faim !
This first challenge, a success !
Together, six companies and almost 90 participants enabled 18 180 € donation to Action contre la Faim. This year, donations are to be divided 50% for Côte d’Ivoire and Jordan programs and 50% for emergency and those in need in the field.
This first edition was a real success and LINKBYNET is proud to have been part of it.
