#NewProject: Children & Family support in Spain

There is an estimated 700,000 families in Spain with either less than 600€ a month or no income at all. According to AROPE (At Risk Of Poverty and/or Exclusion) an European index, 29.2% of Spanish people are at risk of poverty or exclusion and, consequently, 35% of children lives are affected in these low-income households.

Unfortunately, children are those who suffer most in this situation, both physically and mentally. Ildefonso Hernández, president of SEPAS says that “inadequate nutrition and this discriminatory social situation are associated with mental problems and increase risk of meningitis or other infectious disease, also in mid- to long term inadequate nutrition is associated to metabolic disorders like diabetes or cardiovascular problems, finally, poor nutrition is linked to cognitive development in children”.

In light of this situation, Ayuda en Acción has developed a new program to help families overcome these problems in Spain, this program is called Children & Family Support with the aim to improve, in conjunction with schools, the living condition of families who are in vulnerable situations due to the economic crisis.

With this program, Ayuda en Acción goal is to cover the school children’s needs in 30 schools that are in 8 different communities through scholarships for dining, school supplies, extracurricular activities and educational support activities.

Thanks to this project, Zacaris customers will contribute by helping 2 students to have the chance to have a guaranteed annual scholar lunchroom. With this fact, you not only help 1 child to increase their physical and mental performance, you also help their family to know that their child is guaranteed a diary healthy food.

Almost 3 million children affected by the Nepal earthquake will be able to be attended

Last April the 25th there was a 7.9 earthquake in Nepal that devastated Katmandú Valley and caused an avalanche in Everest, causing more than 4.000 people dead and 8.000 injured.

This earthquake was the biggest that has had Nepal after the earthquake of 1934. It caused a high destruction and high dearth of resources. This fact, has caused a humanitarian crisis: 9.5 million of people had humanitarian aids, of which more than 3 million are children.

Before this situation, PcComponentes wanted to support UNICEF in order to provide humanitarian aids to all those children and their families affected by the Nepal earthquake.

#NewSponsor & #NewProject: Ulabox & Obra Social “la Caixa” with #NingúnNiñoSinBigote

Ulabox has added to their site the solidary widget that offer to their users the possibility to add 1€ to their purchase to help fund the project chosen by them. The money raised is going to give to the social projects promoted for Obra Social “la Caixa”.

#NingúnNiñoSinBigote has the aim to ensure that the children in need can drink enough milk to cover their aid needs and all of them will have a good feeding.

Nowadays, thousands of families have limited access to milk. In Spain, more than 300.000 children can’t meet their needs of milk, and it especially affects their mental and physical development because they don’t consume sufficient calcium, vitamins, protein and phosphorus.

Obra Social “la Caixa” collaborates with Banco de Alimentos to gather a great quantity of milk and then will donate entirely to help families in need and ensure the good children growth.

Ulabox is the first 100% online supermarket, and now their users will be able to donate 1€ in every purchase for this project. With their help, Banco de Alimentos will distribute milk to 120 children who are at risk of exclusion and their families.

Obra Social “la Caixa” support different programs and initiatives with the aim to help persons and build a society with more opportunities. For these reason, “la Caixa” will donate an extra milk liter every 10 liters collected up to 100.000 liters of milk.

Together we can do big things!
