Fighting child malnutrition in Kenya

cabecera_uvinum_aztivate

Uvinum is one of the multiple companies who collaborates with us with a strongest commitment against child malnutrition. Some days ago, euro to euro, all their customers collected the total amount necessary to ensure the distribution of a daily meal to 60 children in Madagascar trough the collaboration with Yamuna.

aztivateNow, they have just started a new challenge. In collaboration with Aztivate, an NGO who works for cooperation and development in Africa, the customers of Uvinum will make that 340 children from Turkana (Kenya) receive Vitamin A, antiparasitic and multivitamin annual treatment.

As you may know, Kenya is experiencing one of the worst crises since 2011 due to the lack of rain that triggers serious health problems. Children and pregnant women urgently need medical and food assistance. In particular, the population of Turkana, a region located in northern Kenya, has levels of malnutrition of the 30% and the forecast is that the situation will worsen due to the lack of rainfall. Aztivate has been working in the region for two years, fighting child malnutrition. Uvinum community will have the opportunity to do the same now.

Promofarma brings smiles to hospitalized children

Play is vital to children’s development, but what happens when a child is hospitalized? Overnight they are subjected to long and traumatic treatments, and also confined in a room.

logo-aladinaThe Aladina Foundation has been working for 11 years to support children with cancer. For this Christmas, the entity has organized some workshops, visits and parties designed exclusively so that hospitalized children can escape from their routine at the hospital and enjoy a full Christmas of activities and fun.

LogoPromoFarma-OKAfter collecting the necessary amount to make that RECOVER Foundation can improve the health of 100 women and kids in Cameroon (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Promofarma have the opportunity to collaborate with Aladina Foundation now.

The objective is to facilitate an escape route from the hospital routine, allowing children to escape, share games with other kids and learn.

We celebrated the 2nd Worldcoo Volunteer Day!

Last Friday, we changed our computers and notebooks for paint brushes. In the context of Giving Tuesday  we wanted to spend, in a direct and personal manner, a morning together with those most in need for the second time.

We were with our colleagues fromObra Social Hospital San Juan de Dios, an entity with which we have collaborated several times. The objective was to participate in the rehabilitation of a flat, supervised by the same entity, where young people newly arrived to Spain live.

We spent a very different and productive morning in Sant Vicenç dels Horts (Barcelona). It was a good occasion to share a good time working as a team all together and, also, to know from first-hand the great job that Obra Social does with the management of insertion flats that promote autonomy and offer a home for young newcomers.

Following, some of the pictures from last Friday.

Because of the social and economic situation that Spain has experienced during the last years, many families have been seriously harmed, and all their members have suffered the consequences, especially the youngest.

This Christmas, all the customers of MeQuedoUno have a challenge: improve the currently nutrition of children at risk of social exclusion.

logotipo_aldeas_infantiles_sosThey will do it together with Aldeas Infantiles, an international organization that takes care of the fundamental rights of children.

Through its “Daily Centers” program, the entity offers an adequate socio-educational, therapeutic and integral intervention, promoting strategies that enable an improvement in their personal, family and social well-being.

Specially, the total amount that users of MeQuedoUno collect, will help 30 children at risk of social exclusion receive a meal per day throughout the school year.

The initiative is launched after collaborating with Aladina Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer. MeQuedoUno clients have just funded the total amount needed to fund a grant to improve the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer (you can remember the project HERE).

Don’t forget that you can follow the donation process HERE.
