Part of the donated income and earnings of the Sen Foundation is donated annually to a project in developing countries which supports the provision of medical care and contraceptives for girls in Africa. Support such as this has the most impact on the prevention and limitation of a lot of suffering, particularly the births of unwanted children who do not get cared for and thus die quickly as a result of infectious diseases and hunger. The need for contraceptives and related health care is enormous. This project is carried out by Oxfam Novib.
