#Newproject PcComponentes&UNICEF: Help the Nepal earthquake victims

The 7.9 magnitude Nepal earthquake on 25 April caused a devastation across Katmandú and touched off avalanches on Mount Everest. More than 8.000 people have been injured and more than 4.000 have died.

Thousands of people remain in the streets or in some of the 15 camps enabled by Katmandú government. Therefore, Nepal government has asked for international assistance.

Nearly 3 million children require urgent humanitarian assistance and UNICEF is mobilizing staff and emergency supplies to meet the urgent humanitarian needs, focusing on water and sanitation; nutrition, education and child protection.

Before that situation, PcComponentes want to collaborate with UNICEF and, during two weeks, their users will have the opportunity to help the children that were affected by the earthquake.

With 4.000€ UNICEF will be able to provide 34.800 children drinking water for a week, avoiding deadly diseases and/or send 160 first aid kids, essential to save the injured children life.

The project which was in progress will be re-activated when the emergency campaign ends.

Thanks to PcComponentes again to be an ecommerce with cause and thanks for your help in this emergency situation.

Together we can do big things!

The social impact of Worldcoo

Nowadays, thanks to micro-donations of the users of our ecommerce partners (Let’s Bonus, MeQuedoUno, Uvinum, Zacaris, Redcoon, PromoFarma y PcComponentes), we have funded 22 projects from which there were over 62.873 direct beneficiaries. Many thanks to the 57.792 donations from 35 different countries which raised €77.529. We are so happy with this outcome but we still have a lot to do: we have more than 100 to be funded.

Thanks to Uvinum users, the Agroforestry School of Dindefelo will be equipped with solar panels

Today we celebrate that we have funded the project: Solar equipment for the Agroforestry School of the Dindefelo Community of Jane Goodall Institute thanks to the solidarity of Uvinum users.

With this project, the agroforestry scholl of the Dindefelo rural community in Senegal will be equipped with solar panels and the material needed to be self-sufficient and sustainable. The main goal is to empower the population and local actors for long term management of their natural resources and the ones they depend on directly and improve agroforestry productivity.

It’s estimated that every year 90 West African farmers, 80 women, employees from the local, national and sub-regional authorities and technical services will benefit from this activities.
