MullenLowe picks up Singapore's first ever Global Effie for Lifebuoy's 'Help a Child Reach 5"

Chamki.jpgThe MullenLowe Group has won a prestigious Global Effie, taking home silver for the 'Help A Child Reach 5' campaign for Unilever's Lifebuoy.

The award was won jointly by MullenLowe Singapore and MullenLowe Lintas Group, India and it marks the second time the MullenLowe Group's work on Lifebuoy has been recognized at the Global Effies.
 
Every day, more than 4000 children under the age of 5 lose their lives to preventable infections like diarrhea and pneumonia. Lifebuoy's 'Help A Child Reach 5' #HACR5 promotes handwashing with soap as a key preventative health measure against these infections.

MullenLowe Singapore, Chief Strategy Officer, Ranjit Jathanna said, "Lifebuoy is an amazing brand working at large scale with one single-minded purpose, illness prevention among one of the most vulnerable sections of society: children. Our work on Lifebuoy only helps to shine a much needed spotlight on the problem and more importantly the solution. The most recent edition of #HACR5 - Future Child was a hyperbundled piece of work between MullenLowe offices in Colombia, Mumbai and Singapore. The idea, simple and human managed to successfully cut across geography and culture."
 
MullenLowe Singapore, Global Business Director, Lifebuoy, Vinay Vinayak says 'Lifebuoy's purpose to help prevent infections among children, is both inspiring and humbling. Winning at Effectiveness simply means that we are helping kids win against illness. What could be more important?'

Widely considered an industry benchmark in Creative Effectiveness, very few Global Effies are awarded annually.
