Severe malnutrition is one of the leading causes of infant mortality in the world. Each year more than five million boys and girls under the age of five die due to a lack of food or an inadequate diet.
In order to stop this blight, the NGO Action against Hunger has launched again this year the “Restaurants against Hunger” initiative that will feed for many children who don’t have access to food. Our Soma Restaurant, located in the Vincci Soma 4* in Madrid, is one of the establishments that is participating in this initiative for the second year in a row.
Feel like contributing? Well it’s quite easy. Come to eat in our restaurant any day while the campaign lasts between the 15th of September and the 15thof November. We’ll offer you a meal for 25 Euros of which 1.50 will be donated to the NGO.
Besides helping those who need it most, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious dishes elaborated by our chef. The menu includes: an aperitif, a first, second, dessert and wine. Come and eat our salmon tartare, our secret Iberian ham with ratte potatoes or the chocolate ice cream mini fondant with cinnamon. These are just a few of the choices, as the menu changes every day.
If you are travelling by car, you won’t have any problems: you’ll have two hours free parking (subject to availability). Our hotel is located in a privileged area, calle Goya, so while you eat you’ll be able to enjoy views of one of the most central areas of Madrid.
Thanks to your contribution, Action against Hunger will have available more resources to prevent severe child malnutrition: only one in ten have access to a recovery treatment.
What the workers of the NGO do to avoid children dying involves fighting malnutrition with therapeutic products, ready to eat food that allows malnourished children to be treated at home.
A few years ago, these children would have been put in a hospital, but now, thanks to the home treatment, the coverage for sick children has increased and has reduced the social cost, which means that parents can take care of their children at home without having to travel or abandon their family.
Last year we raised 100,000 Euros, the equivalent of 2,500 nutritional treatments. Wouldn’t it be great to exceed this figure? Then do your bit and come and try our Soma restaurant’s menu. You’ll help save thousands of lives.
