Today is the World Cancer Day
In Spain, more than 270,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year. More than 26,000 of these new diagnoses are people at risk of social exclusion. In fact, nearly 10,000 of them are unemployed and more than a half don’t receive any help.
Coinciding with the World Cancer Day, which is celebrated today February 4, many of the companies who collaborate with us, have started different fundraising campaigns to help people with cancer in vulnerable situations.
Bonpreu i Esclat Supermarkets, one of the first companies who started to offer the Charity Rounding Up, will raise, during all February, in favour of Kàlida Foundation. The objective is to improve the well-being of people with cancer.
Through the “Charity Cents” program, Eroski clients are collaborating to fight against childhood cancer and their families. In Spain, every year, 1,500 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in people under 18 years. With the total amount expeted to raise, it is expected to help 7,047 boys and girls through the Federación Española de padres de niños/as con cáncer (FEPNC), AMARA Cantabria y ASPANAFOA (Asociación de padres y madres de niños/as con cáncer de Álava).
In the online environment, Ticketmaster, as well as Promofarma, are starting a new fundraising campaign to help the AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer) to cover the basic needs of cancer patients in vulnerable situations. With € 5,000 raised, they will be able to help cover the basic necessities derived from the household bills of 25 families in a situation of economic vulnerability due to a cancer diagnosis. ntegral.
