Nicequest and polio eradicating

capcelera_nq_eng

In their last challenge, Nicequest users had shown their solidarity to prevent malnutrition in Lake Chad, where the conflict that began more than seven years ago is now affecting more than 6 million people.  With their help, Oxfam Intermón will be able to distribute hygienic kits and water to hundreds of families (you can remember the project HERE).

Now, its new goal is to contribute to the eradication of polio in Nigeria, where new cases of this disease have recently been detected, especially in areas affected by wars and violence.

They will do it in the hand of Unicef, who with their help will be able to vaccinate 8,000 children and put an end to this highly contagious disease, which attacks the nervous system and prevents normal development, especially for children under 5 years.

A summer full of opportunities

jovenes adsis

Continuing socio-educational activity in summer is key to preventing risky behaviour and offering opportunities that normally young people at risk of social exclusion do not have access to.  This is, among other, one of the main priorities of Adsis Foundation and now the customers of PcComponentes will be able to contribute to this same cause.

leadImage_previewAfter collecting the necessary funds in order to CRIS Cancer Foundation could fund a new treatment for a kid with cancer (you can remember the project HERE), the new challenge for PcComponentes will be helping Adsis Foundation to ensure that 250 kids and teenagers between 11 and 18 years old from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Barcelona and Valencia can assist to educational and cultural workshops, sports activities and receive breakfast and snacks during this summer.

These are young people who are in situation of vulnerability and because of economic limitations they do not have access to leisure activities.

Fundación Adsis works to turn situations of inequality into opportunities. During the school year, it offers emotional and educational support to children and adolescents and is also present during the holidays, to continue the work done with the children during the year and void situations of neglect and street and at the same time give young people the opportunity to have a vacation.

International Refugees Day

capcelera_eng

Today, 20 of June, takes place the International Refugee Day; an opportunity that allows us to get a closer look at the reality of UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).

Almost everyone has heard of the acronym UNHCR, but very few know that the organization was born in 1950 with the challenge of resetting one million Europeans who became homeless after World War II. Since then, UNHCR has provided humanitarian aid to millions of people who have had to leave their homes due to armed conflict or persecution. In total, 49.7 million people are under its protection. What are their current priorities and focus of action? We talk with Joan Reventós, Director of the Catalan Committee of UNHCR

Today, there are 65, 6 million displaced people in the world. What is the main aim of UNHCR?

The UNHCR’s main challenge is to protect and assist refugees and displaced persons through persecution or war, and to promote durable solutions to their situation, through voluntary repatriation, integration into the first countries of asylum or through resettlement in third countries. With the current levels of forced displacement in the world, it is a great challenge to find durable solutions, as more than ninety percent of all displaced people live in the world’s most impoverished countries and their reception capacities, despite their solidarity, are very limited

These are people who have had to flee armed conflict or persecution and are forced to seek security in the nearby countries. What is the biggest challenge once they cross the border of their country?

It is essential that people who cross borders in search of security can effectively access their rights as persons with international protection needs. Therefore, the states that host them must have the appropriate laws, procedures and guarantees to offer asylum. Together with the legal certainty necessary to reside in a new country, they need sufficient support to be able to restart their lives and to enable them to live independently and autonomously, with the aim of becoming active subjects of the host societies, If there are conditions to return, in their countries of origin.

After 67 years since the creation of UNHCR, today there are more than 50 people under your protection. How has the experience been since today?

A complex path, full of challenges and difficulties; Successes and learning. Plagued with dilemmas. UNHCR’s mandate, both to protect and assist refugees and internally displaced persons and to reduce the number of stateless persons in the world, is a daunting challenge which requires a combination of different sensitivities and interests at global, regional and local levels.

Is there any project or past experience that serves to respond to the present needs?

There are different experiences that can serve as examples in the face of the challenges that the international community now has to face in order to reduce current levels of forced displacement. One of them was the one promoted by Fridtjof Nansen, a scientist, diplomat and statesman; A humanist with deep compassion for human beings who, at the request of the League of Nations, encouraged the High Commissioner for Refugees, an initial seed of what is now UNHCR, becoming the first international organization Dedicated entirely to finding solutions for people fleeing wars and conflicts. Nansen, thanks to his excellent diplomatic skills, reached an agreement for 52 countries to authorize the issuance of what was called “Nansen passports”, personal identification cards that allowed their holders to travel without arousing suspicion or encountering border problems. For almost two decades, these certificates enabled millions of people to be saved from persecution and barbarism, people who played a very important role in the development of host societies

In recent months, the various conflicts that have taken place in Syria, South Sudan and Yemen, among others, have been described as the greatest humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. How do you see the current and future scenario?

With concern and hope. Concern because the number of forced displacements has multiplied in recent years, and this means that millions of people have become, often overnight, refugees or displaced persons; Forced to leave their homes behind, to shed most of their belongings and, what is worse, to live the uprooting. While accelerating this process, we find that the international community does not find the political solutions necessary for this trend to be reversed in the short or medium term.

On the other hand, with hope since, in this, as in many other things in life, the Pareto Law can be of great help to us. If among all of us we are committed to addressing the causes and consequences of the four most bloody conflicts or crises that now plague the world (Syria, Palestine, South Sudan and Somalia), 80% of the more than 65 million displaced people which now scandalize us, could start thinking about returning to their homes. It may seem utopian, but it is only a matter of will and determination

What can we all do from here?

On the one hand, as citizens of a global world, be aware that forced displacement is not something alien and distant to us. Everyone could be a refugee some day,  almost all the people who inhabit the land today have a relative who in his day had to flee his home because of the war.  Understanding it implies understanding that behind each figure there is a person like us: with desires, hopes, fears and loves … People like you and me.

Lastly, and until political solutions to conflicts have been found, the humanitarian community needs the support of individuals and organizations in order to respond to the enormous needs that are detected in the most impoverished countries. For this reason, I invite you to become a partner or donor of the Spanish Committee of UNHCR, either by calling 913690670 or through our website www.eacnur.org, your contribution, added to that of more than 400,000 Spanish regular contributors allows us to continue #changing stories.

#CompromisoMascoteros, the first social program of Mascoteros

 

capcelera_eng

We introduce you our first ecommerce with cause dedicated to pets!

mascoteros_900They are Mascoteros, the first Spanish marketplace related to the world of pets.  If you didn’t know them you will now have opportunity to do it, because they just have joined to Worldcoo community with their new initiative #MascoterosCommitment.

Though this new initiative, they will offer their customers the opportunity to add done, two or five euros to each purchase they do and contribute to the defense of animal rights, one of its main commitments.

logo-dainaIn their first challenge, they will help Conan and three more dogs who, like him, live in one of the refuges of the Fundation for the Defense of Animals and Nature, an entity created by the Animal Protection Society of Mataró (spAm).

When Conan arrived at the Foundation, more than 10 years ago, he had clear signs of neglect and he was quite thin. After different therapies, Conan is now a loving and obedient dog, fully prepared to find a new home.

The total amount collected by Mascoteros users will go to “Great animals for great people” program, and with it, the Foundation will  guarantee the life support and veterinary care of Conan and three other older dogs found. Something that will undoubtedly promote its adoption.

Demis Torres, CEO of Mascoteros tells us that “the agreement with Worldcoo allows us to take a step forward in the defense and promotion of animal rights. There are many entities that today do not have the necessary resources to ensure the maintenance and veterinary treatment of the animals they welcome and we are so happy to be able to contribute through our community and in the long term.

The project was launched this morning and the donations were not long in coming! If you want, you can follow the donation process live HERE.
