GRENOBLE, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

Spartoo (ISIN: FR00140043Y1 – ticker: ALSPT), one of the leading online retailers for fashion items in Europe, announces today its support for Amref Health Africa for the seventh consecutive year.

Amref Health Africa1 is a leading African public health NGO whose mission is to strengthen health systems in Africa through the training of dedicated professionals. For more than 15 years, Amref has been working to ensure equitable access to health care on the continent, particularly for women and children, through distance learning for medical professionals, telemedicine and computerized patient monitoring.

Its Cellal e Kisal program aims to reduce the pre- and post-natal risks for mothers and children, as 80% of maternal deaths worldwide occur in sub-Saharan Africa2. For the past 7 years, Spartoo has been supporting this initiative through the sale of solidarity products (this year, a baby bib with an illustration of an elephant and its calf), the profits from which are donated to the NGO, and by calling for donations directly on its e-commerce site (https://www.spartoo.com/operation-amref.php). To date, this commitment has enabled the launch of training program in Senegal and Ivory Coast that have directly benefited more than 4,400 midwives and nurses.

Boris Saragaglia, co-founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spartoo, stated: “We are particularly proud to renew our support for the Amref initiative, which has become a key pillar of Spartoo’s SRI strategy over the years. We invite you to take part in this operation by following this link: https://www.spartoo.com/operation-amref.php. Since the beginning of our commitment, thousands of midwives and nurses have been trained to care for women and children, enabling them to live in good conditions. Sub-Saharan Africa still has the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world, deaths that could be prevented if more staff were trained locally. It is the responsibility of companies like ours to commit to the development of concrete solutions in the most disadvantaged countries.
