Dear Member States, Stakeholders, Supporters and Friends,

I am most pleased to introduce you to the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM) and its affirmative action programme, CAMP MARADONA® which utilizes Sports in the context of holistic education for children and for Peace and Development.

IIMSAM is an intergovernmental organization that has its headquarters in New York. IIMSAM strives to counter malnutrition through the use of Spirulina- a micro-algae abundant in essential proteins, vitamins, nutrients and minerals- required by the human body. Our initiatives aspire to make Spirulina a key-driver to achieve global food security and bridge the health divide, with a special focus on the Developing and the Least Developed Countries. IIMSAM’s affirmative action programme, CAMP MARADONA® is an endeavor by the IIMSAM to use the medium of sport for the attainment of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

Having various United Nations Resolutions as its guiding principles and a participatory stakeholders approach as its bedrock, IIMSAM CAMP MARADONA® shall establish state of the art sports complexes that shall provide holistic education to children through sports with a special priority for the developing and least developed countries. It would also organize major events that highlight combating severe malnutrition through sports, featuring notable sports and entertainment figures that will benefit children and disadvantaged groups through selected participating NGO pilot-projects throughout the world concerned with the advancement of the IIMSAM mandate along with the UN Millennium Development Goals.

I seek your support that in my opinion would be most crucial for the success of the IIMSAM CAMP MARADONA® and its activities that would be implemented in consultation with the concerned agencies, organizations and programmes of the UN system; to make world a better place through sport and the Olympic ideal.

Yours Sincerely,
