A couple of days ago, the customers of Decántalo completed the challenge of raising the necessary amount so that 30 people with disabilities could perform assisted therapy sessions with horses through the entity GLOBAL HUMANITARIA. You can remember the project HERE.

Thes next challenge is to achieve that 50 people at risk of social exclusion, receive a balanced and nutritious daily meal for, at least, a month and a half.  

logo_nutricion_sin_fronterasThey will do so together with Nutrición Sin Fronteras, entity that provides food to social centers through the program “Barcelona shares food”, an initiative to take advantage of food cooked surplus of hotels in the city. The entity deals with the transport of the same and performs training to food handlers, ensuring optimal conditions of hygiene and food safety throughout the process.

Thanks to the entire work circuit, it is possible to achieve the objective of reducing food waste and protecting the universal right to food for citizens living in poverty.

Coviran Supermarket launches our Social Round Up

50 Coviran Supermarkets offer their customers the option to round up their ticket and donate their cents to a social cause.

As many of you know, last spring Coviran Supermarkets, launched the Social Round Up in some of their establishments and its reception was more than satisfactory: 46% of customers who paid by card rounded up their purchase.

Starting today, 50 more Covirán centers join the Social Round Up campaign and all their customers who pay with credit card, will have the opportunity to round up their ticket and donate their cents to a social cause.   Round_up_Worldcoo

 The project: #OneNameOneLife

UNICEFThe total amount collected by the customers of Covirán will go directly to “#UnNOmbreUnaVida” (“#OneNameOneLife”), an iniciative presented this week by UNICEF Spanish Comittee with the aim of increasing the survival rated of babies under one month.

Did you know that about 7,000 newborns die every day, many of them without ever having a name?

The reason is because, in some countries of the world, where life expectancy is very low, there are parents who don’t name their babies because they think it will be easier to forget them if they do not survive. The first month of life is the most crucial for children’s survival, but every year 2.5 million babies die before completing it.

If urgent measures are not taken, approximately 28 million newborns will die by 2030, most of them due to premature births, complications during childbirth or infections such as sepsis, pneumonia or meningitis.

80% of these newborns – 5,600 babies every day – can be saved thanks to simple and low-cost solutions such as a vaccine, a mosquito net, a thermal blanket or an antibiotic. Therefore, UNICEF Spanish Committee launches the campaign for the survival of newborns #UnNombreUnaVida, whose goal is that all babies have a name and a life to live and enjoy.

CARTELL

Through the Solidarity Roundup, Covirán customers will have the opportunity to collaborate to make it happen.

  • With only 50 cents, the entity will be able to vaccinate 1 child against polio.
  • With € 1, 5 children can be vaccinated against tuberculosis.

If you want, you can get the status of live collection or get more information about the campaign in THIS LINK.

Establishment with cause

alimentació_anglesThrough this new agreement, Covirán incorporates the stamp of “Establishment with cause” in its more than 50 supermarkets, a distinction we give to those companies that bet on new models of solidarity collection and that, through small donations, manage to help large causes.

New mattresses for orphans in Mozambique

cabecera

In Mozambique, more than two million kids have lost their parents, most of them, due to infectious diseases such as AIDS.

logoThe need to take care and help those kids is so big that the South Mozambique Foundation has created a shelter – La Casa do Gaiato – in the South of the country. In total, it welcomes around 160 children and young people who they also proportionate human, academic and professional education.

One of the main needs that they have now is the lack of mattresses where the little ones can rest and sleep, and Maxcolchon will help them to get it.

After completing their last project, with which they helped make Timothy’s dream come true (you can remember it here), all customers who buy a rest product through their website, will have the option to add a social euro to their purchase and collaborate with the Mozambique South Foundation.

In addition, the company will donate the same amount that will be collected among all micro-donations made by Maxcolchon’s clients until the financing of the project is completed.

Thanks to this, the entity will be able to acquire 32 mattresses that will help children and young people of Casa do Gaiato to rest as they should.

The numbers of affected people are increasing and there are still a large number of isolated populations.
