Help for disadvantaged children
The Novo Nordisk Foundation awarded a grant to the Christmas Seal Foundation for the children’s homes they run, which help 750 disadvantaged children each year. These children often have psychosocial difficulties and struggle with obesity. Children staying at the Foundation’s homes get good food and plenty of exercise. They receive tools to tackle bullying and have opportunity to make new friends and experience a community that helps them to achieve personal victories and rebuild their self-esteem.
