Why does Terre des hommes sell oranges ?

Because 2.6 million children die every year from malnutrition, Terre des hommes is helping to improve the health of children around the world. The sale of oranges (http://www.tdh.ch/en/actions/orange_sale), which first took place more than 50 years ago, helps to finance Tdh health and nutrition projects (http://www.tdh.ch/en/news/oranges-to-treat-children). Because all children have the right to good health !
