BAMBI for Queen Mathilde of Belgium

The Bambi in the charity category will be awarded to Queen Mathilde of Belgium on 21 November 2019.

The decision of the Bambi jury recognizes the monarch’s com- mitment: “The Queen of the Belgians fulfills her role as mother of the nation far beyond the nation’s borders. She cares deeply about the welfare of all people, and she has dedicated her life to this vocation. Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium is not only the representative of a country, she is also a role model for all the people of Europe.” Queen Mathilde is committed to strengthening the rights of women and children, and to educa- tion, health, and the fight against poverty.

Having studied psychology, Mathilde of Belgium is especially concerned with mental health and children’s well-being. She is a particularly passionate campaigner against cyberbullying. As the honorary president of the Child Focus foundation, she is committed to helping missing and sexually exploited children. As the honorary president of UNICEF Belgium, she campaigns worldwide for the rights of children. Her assistance fund serves to support people in financial hardship. In 2016 she became an SDG Advocate for the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In 2017 she received the German Sustainability Award for her commitment to humanitarian and sociopolitical causes.

The presentation of the Bambi in the charity category to Queen Mathilde of Belgium will be broadcast live on the German TV channel “Das Erste” on 21 November, starting at 8.15 p.m.
