Intergovernmental Observer to the United Nations Economic and Social Council Under ECOSOC Resolution 2003/212 Dated 5th of March 2003.

H.E Carolina Herrera, Goodwill Ambassador and Facilitator for IIMSAM’s “The Right to Food Campaign Initiative Against Malnutrition” was born in Caracas, Venezuela in the family of Venezuelan landowners and statesman. A renowned designer who celebrates and epitomizes the essence of woman in her creations and acclaimed works that find a tremendous appeal which transcend continents, Mrs. Herrera was awarded with the prestigious “Women’s-wear Designer of the Year” from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Most recently, H.E. Carolina Herrera launched a diffusion collection ‘CH Carolina Herrera’ in Europe.

With a keen esthetic sense that finds manifestation in her style that seeks simplicity in intricacy, H.E. Carolina Herrera would contribute with her faculties towards the complex issue of malnutrition and to find amiable solutions in the context of development deficit, gender divide, and natality equality. In particular, she wants to focus her energies to counter malnourishment in the womb that results either in infant or maternal mortality, or reduces future cognitive development of a child, with traditionally disempowered groups such as women and children bearing the disproportionate brunt of the ill.

H.E Carolina Herrera states, “If my work at the IIMSAM were to save the life of even one child from the forty thousand children that die of malnutrition and related diseases each day, I would consider it the greatest work of my life.”

Her contributions would play a significant role to check the reproduction of poverty from one generation to the next that results because of malnutrition and must be tackled to meet the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
