Falsterbo Horse Show is the biggest outdoor equestrian event in Sweden, hosting nearly a thousand horses and riders throughout nine days, including some of the world’s best riders.
Longines offered it’s support to JustWorld in this Scandinavian adventure by hosting the Longines ‘Clear the Jump’ on Sunday during the Longines Falsterbo Grand Prix. For every Longines combination cleared, the Swiss watchmaker provided 200 meals to children at JustWorld projects throughout the world.
Thanks to this unique initiative 5000 more meals were donated. For many of the children, these meals often provide the only nutritious meal of the day and is is the first important step in ensuring a basic level of health, as well as the ability to learn.
JustWorld International focuses its efforts on some of the poorest communities in countries such as Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala, and Colombia, where public education is limited or inaccessible, threatening many children’s chances for productive lives. JustWorld helps children who live in poverty that is unimaginable to many people in the developed world. More info JustWorld International
