How Nando’s founder Robbie Brozin is battling to rid Africa of malaria

The World Health Organization reports there were 198 million cases of malaria worldwide in 2013, resulting in an estimated 584 000 to 855 000 deaths, 90% of which occurred in Africa.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Nando’s founder Robbie Brozin about his philanthropic passions including his brainchild Goodbye Malaria.

Brozin says that Goodbye Malaria is aimed at eliminating malaria in Africa in a way that showed the continent could solve its own problems without a “begging bowl mentality”.

Mozambique is the roots of our brand and Malaria is a huge issue there. Mozzies don’t know borders and don’t need unabridged birth certificates! Eradicating malaria from Mozambique also helps South Africa.
