capçalera_eng

#NewProject

As you many know, the users of MeQuedoUno have been collecting with the purpose that this year 2017 children with rare disease could also have access to a quality education.

We met the story of César and with him, the community of MeQuedoUno started a donation campaign in order to achieve the challenge established: that 25 children with rare diseases could be benefited from the FEDER Educational Assistance Service.  You can remember the project HERE.

In line with its social commitment, the challenge that MeQuedoUno begins today is to raise funds to fund a training grant that will allow that resident doctors could be able to continue their studies and researches needed to combat childhood cancer.

Aladina_MDSIMA20141015_0096_35They will do it together with Aladina Foundation, an organization that every year attends more than 1.500 kids and their families in the 12 different hospitals which they collaborate with. Through its various projects, Aladina provides integrated support to children, adolescents and families.

The story of César and MeQuedoUno implication

In 2017, let’s help children with rare disease have quality education

MeQuedoUno starts a new project!

César is a 20 years old student and has the Apert Syndrome, one of the 7.000 rare disease that exist. Today we have the pleasure to present you his testimony and story, so we can know a little bit more which challenges they face and how it’s their day to day.

cesar_olivia“My name is César Díez, I’m studying Informatics and I have Apert Syndrome, a congenital disorder that affects chromosome 10 and is characterized by a general malformation of different bones, mainly of the head and face. It is a disease that, if not controlled in time, can cause blindness, deafness and intellectual deficit. We are born with our fingers and toes together (syndactyly) and my treatment involves multiple operations and long hospital stays, many kilometres far from my house.

I was born in Merida, a city of 60,000 population and with a small hospital. I was the first and only born with my illness in this health centre and the doctors saw so much difficulty in my state that they only gave me 48 hours of life … meanwhile, I tried to fight the most and enjoy my life, like what I’m doing now.

Throughout my life, both my parents and I have fought constantly for an “inclusive education“, that doesn’t discriminate for my physical or intellectual deficiencies and allow me to have access to a quality education.

In spite of my multiple operations and long stays in hospitals, and that on several occasions the educational system have invited me to attend to “special education” classrooms, I have achieved my goal! After finishing the bachelor’s degree, now I’m studying a high degree in “Telecommunications and Information Systems”.

logo-vector-federThe constant work together with the Education Council in Extremadura (Spain) and the FEDER (Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases), has allowed us to take another step to make the access to quality education a reality. For example, we have recently launched the “Protocol for the reception and care of children with rare diseases” in the schools in Extremadura. Our mission is that all children with rare diseases have an educational response adequate to their abilities, potentialities and needs. We’re sure that, all together, we will achieve it “.

mqu-logoNow, the users of MeQuedoUno have the opportunity, like César, to contribute and collaborate with one of the educational projects that the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER) carries out to guarantee access to a quality and equitable education, regardless of their conditions and circumstances.

With their help, in 2017 25 children with rare diseases that attend school will be benefited from the FEDER Education Assistance Service.

capc%cc%a7alera_aldeas_eng

#NewProject

In his last project, the users of MeQuedoUno collected more than 3.000€ in order to help Intermon Oxfam to distribute cereals, legumes, salt and oil to 200 families in South Sudan, where OCHA estimates that up to 7 million South Sudanese people are at risk of severe food insecurity. You can remember the project HERE.

With his new challenge, they will help SOS Children, an international organisation, to help children, founded in 1949 in Imst (Austria), with presence in 134 countries.

Because of the economic and social situation experienced by Spain during the last years, many families have been seriously harmed, negatively affecting all members of it, especially the youngest ones.

In the 15 day care centers of SOS Children’s Villages in Spain, a snack is offered every evening to children in order to guarantee quality food while also working hygiene and health issues.

Thanks to the collaboration of MeQuedoUno, 90 children will receive a daily snack in SOS Children’s Villages day care centers during school year.

Report Plan funding and monitoring for early detection of Cervical Cancer

The project for the plan Early detection of cervical cancer for women in the Sankuru region in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is developing as planned.

The team COMB ( Official College of Doctors in Barcelona) are working on health coverage for affected women, medical equipment and staff training to implement the screening program and preventive treatment for cervical cancer.

To date, thanks to the solidarity campaign MeQuedoUno.com and its users, who managed to raise €6240, COMB have been using this money to carry out logistical activities, staff training (with the completion of over 30 training sessions for cytologists, colonoscopists and surgeons). Already there have been significant results:

  • There have been 70 colposcopy appointments.
  • There have been 45 pap smears
  • And from a total of 70 women that attended, 7 have been identified: 1 with invasive cancer, 2 adenocarcinomas in situ and 4 with high-grade lesions.

Positive social impact for women RDC
On completion of the project, 120,000 people in the region and 10,727 women will benefit. It is  very positive for the people of this area as Cervical Cancer (Ccx) was the leading cause of cancer related deaths for Sub-Saharan women. 80% of cases occurring entirely in Africa where every year 56,000 women die. DRC, along with other neighboring African countries, did not have a plan for detecting cervical cancer thus the cure rate was very low. We hope that these figures will improve and the social impact generated is vital.

We leave you with a summary report financing as well as a more detailed report of the activities undertaken at the end of October ( in spanish).
