Charity Rounding Up in favour of Vicente Ferrer Foundation

capcelera_bp

bpThis August, the customers of Bonpreu i Esclat Supermarket can round up the total amount of their purchase and donate the cents to Vicente Ferrer Foundation.

fvfMany families of the most poorest comunities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (in the South of India) live in precarious houses that don’t have the minimum living or hygiene conditions. They also don’t have letrines or a space for their personal hygiene, which forces them to do their physical needs outdoors, with very negative consequences on health and safe. The population lives exposed to the inclement weather, from the monsoon rains to the intense heat that punishes the area and forces them to rebuild them permanently as well as the bites of dangerous animals such as snakes and scorpions.

Having a solid home in conditions of hygiene and safety is an essential requirement to achieve good social integration. For this reason, the money raised during August thanks to the Bonpreu i Esclat Charity Rounding Up will be used to build 20 homes in conditions of health and hygiene for the most disadvantaged families in Chandrapalli.
