Water for andian population

embalse_

Did you know that 62% of the Peruvian population lives in areas with 2,2% of the water availability of the country?

Family farming is the main economic activity of the poorest families in Peru, most of whom live in rural areas. The human, ecological and water effects of climate change are especially important for them, since they depend on water in all their agricultural or livestock activities.

NRbZ7qZsAmong others, one of the main project of Ayuda en Acción consists in promote a social management of water as a way for conservation rehabilitation and recovery of water sources, that allows to support small-scale agriculture.

logo_planetahuertoAfter completing its last project, in which they helped 20 women from Mali to receive agricultural training in order to improve their productivity (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Planeta Huerto start now a new fundraising campaign to collaborate with Ayuda en Acción to optimize the use of water in family farming which is the main income source of people in those areas.

Through the money collected, Ayuda en Acción will be able to implement an irrigation technification and 10 families in Peru will have access to water and food security.

Emergency campaign for Mexico

Telefonica Group, Banco Sabadell and PcComponentes have started emergency campaigns to assist victims in México

NotimexOne week ago, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake shook central Mexico causing great devastation. The catastrophe left more than 300 dead and thousands of victims. Dozens of buildings have been demolished in Mexico City, but also in the states of Mexico, Puebla and Morelos and 400 schools have been damaged.

In front of this situation, one of the groups that are particularly affected are children, who now have to face other threats, such as being separated from their family in the middle of the chaos.

The first hours after a catastrophe such as the one experienced, are crucial to finding survivors, housing the victims in shelters where they can rest safe, receive water and food and restore the general situation.

The signs of solidarity to alleviate the situation have been constant around the world. Among them, those of our companies with cause, who have launched emergency campaigns to maximize efforts and invite all their customers and employees to make a small contribution.

AF_Logotipo_Fundacion_POS_RGB_esTelefonica Group, for example, invites society to make their donation though their corporate page. All the funds collected will be very useful to make hundreds of kids can go back to school and reconstruct their classrooms with the help of Telefonica Foundation and all their volunteers. So far, they have already raised more than €25.000!

pcAnother case is the campaign launched by PcComponentes. They invite all their customers to add €1 to its purchase to collaborate with UNICEF in the distribution of drinking water to 450 children for half a year.

banco-sabadell-logoBanco Sabadell employees also wanted to join the cause and support Unicef to take care of the needs of children affected in terms of water, sanitation, nutrition, health, education and protection. Through its social platform, clients, employees and non-clients are making their donations.

Cholera outbreak emergency campaign

UNICEF_UN065871_Alzekri

unicefTo the conflict that already threatens millions of children in Yemen, a dangerous outbreak of cholera is now linked. Health services, halved by the conflict, are on the verge of collapse and do not provide enough to meet the growing number of people suffering from this disease.

Without a proper water and sanitation system, cholera is transmitted at high speed and without health centers or economic resources, it is not possible to face a health emergency like this.

logoIn front of this bad situation, Unicef is working to deal this outbreak of cholera, distributing medical supplies and drinking water. After collaborating with Codespa Foundation in order to train young people at risk of social exclusion, Nicequest users will join Unicef in the cholera prevention.

With their help, 1.170 Yemen children will have access to drinking water for a year to prevent further cholera infections.
