Report of funding and monitoring the Project “Care at Home”

The project of ´Care at home´ by the foundation “Friends for the elderly” , was the first project we did with LetsBonus in February 2014 and with which initiated their intention to work closely with #LetsBonusActúa program. Thanks to the solidarity of its members, who managed to raise € 1,015 in one month. Here we present the report of investments and everything that was made possible due to the help received.

  • 67 gatherings with 3 volunteers at the home of an elderly person to discuss providing personal support and dynamic activities for them.
  • 450 telephone calls to the elderly person to know how they are and for a follow up.
  • 51 Carers in the individuals home for two hours to give them emotional support and to build stronger ties with them.

One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to support the transparency of donations and so we track every € donated by the users of our committed e-commerce service. In this case, 586 seniors have benefited from the program activities. This project is great way of providing emotional support to elderly people living alone and also to avoid the social isolation that affects a umber of people.

Report Plan funding and monitoring for early detection of Cervical Cancer

The project for the plan Early detection of cervical cancer for women in the Sankuru region in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), is developing as planned.

The team COMB ( Official College of Doctors in Barcelona) are working on health coverage for affected women, medical equipment and staff training to implement the screening program and preventive treatment for cervical cancer.

To date, thanks to the solidarity campaign MeQuedoUno.com and its users, who managed to raise €6240, COMB have been using this money to carry out logistical activities, staff training (with the completion of over 30 training sessions for cytologists, colonoscopists and surgeons). Already there have been significant results:

  • There have been 70 colposcopy appointments.
  • There have been 45 pap smears
  • And from a total of 70 women that attended, 7 have been identified: 1 with invasive cancer, 2 adenocarcinomas in situ and 4 with high-grade lesions.

Positive social impact for women RDC
On completion of the project, 120,000 people in the region and 10,727 women will benefit. It is  very positive for the people of this area as Cervical Cancer (Ccx) was the leading cause of cancer related deaths for Sub-Saharan women. 80% of cases occurring entirely in Africa where every year 56,000 women die. DRC, along with other neighboring African countries, did not have a plan for detecting cervical cancer thus the cure rate was very low. We hope that these figures will improve and the social impact generated is vital.

We leave you with a summary report financing as well as a more detailed report of the activities undertaken at the end of October ( in spanish).

Project Monitoring Report For one@ more

Following the success of the campaign For one@ more, by Worldcoo in April 2013, the official report will enable all our donors to see the evolution of this campaign. The project´s objective was to raise the necessary funds for a student from a poor country or a situation of conflict, to come and en-role at the International Master in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies of the University Jaume I, located in the town of Castellón. The idea for the campaign came from the students themselves following the cancellation of all public subsidies for the granting of these scholarships.

Raul Montes Osorio, was the lucky one who received the award thanks to funding obtained by the community @Worldcoo. A total of € 5,340 was raised in 5 weeks, from 146 donors. According to Raul´s report, the results of his first year have been more than satisfactory, both in academics and student integration into the community. In his final year, apart from gaining the last 60 credits of the Master,  Raul needs to present his final Master’s project  in Professional Counseling publicly before a tribunal constituted for this purpose. This is to evaluate the quality of work and decide if it is suitable for obtaining the ´Masters´ title.

We wish you the best of luck in this course Raul!

Tras el éxito de la campaña Por un@ más, realizada por Worldcoo en abril de 2013, os compartimos el informe oficial de su seguimiento para que todos los donantes puedan ver su evolución.   El objetivo del proyecto  era conseguir los fondos necesarios para que un estudiante proveniente de algún país empobrecido o en situación de conflicto, pudiera impartir el Máster Internacional sobre Paz, Conflictos y Estudios de desarrollo de la Universidad Jaume I,  impartido en la localidad de Castellón. La idea de la campaña surgió de los mismos estudiantes a raíz de la cancelación de todas las subvenciones  públicas para la concesión de este tipo de becas.

 Raúl Montes Osorio,  fue el joven  afortunado que recibió  la beca gracias a la financiación conseguida por toda la comunidad @Worldcoo. Se recaudaron un total de  5340€  en 5 semanas, con 146 donantes . Según el informe, los resultados del primer año han sido más que satisfactorios, tanto en aspectos académicos como de integración del estudiante en la comunidad. Este último año, a parte de cursar los últimos 60 créditos del Máster, Raúl defenderá su Trabajo Final de Máster con Orientación Profesional  públicamente ante un tribunal constituido a tal efecto, que evaluará la calidad del trabajo y decidirá si es apto para la obtención del título de Máster, objetivo final que certifica la formación recibida.

The right to see in Mozambique

The Right to See has been set as a priority in the world’s development agenda by the World Health Organization. The objective is to eradicate avoidable blindness by 2020. Mozambique is one of the most affected countries in the world, counting with a 500.000 eye diseased population and as few as 8 professional ophthalmologists.

Acknowledging that most of these diseases could be prevented by a minimum health care, we at Worldcoo believe we have the power to change things. With the help of our visionary sponsor Cottet, the project “Out of sight, not out of mind” could make the difference. By bringing an ophthalmologic training course to the Central Hospital of Maputo doctors and nurses, and treating 80 eye patients, Ocularis surgeons will help improve Mozambique health care system.

Help us bring Mozambique a new vision for a brighter future.   

Improving women’s health conditions in Sankuru region

Women’s health has become in the latest years one of the top issues on world development’s agenda, as it is a factor of gender inequality and worldwide disparities in access to healthcare. Cervical cancer is one of the most common feminine diseases. With its 270.000 deaths every year, of which more than 85% are count up in developing countries, cervical cancer is a clear exemplification of women’s health nowadays challenges. According to World Health Organization: “the high mortality rate from cervical cancer globally (52%) could be reduced by effective screening and treatment programs”.
This is why at Worldcoo we are committed with Pobles Germans and supported by Col·legi de Metges de Barcelona to promote cervical cancer awareness and health coverage in Sankuru region (Democratic Republic of Congo).
And thanks to MeQuedoUno and its generous customers who have allowed us to raise 1300€ in less than a month for cervical cancer in Sankuru it is becoming a reality. Keep going so we can help improve women’s health conditions in this region and make a difference!

The Honduran Moskitia

Wampusirpi is a small village located in the middle of the Honduran Moskitia. The inhabitants of this area are mostly Miskito and the population is as little as 1,500. With neighbouring villages around the Wampusirpi the population totals 6,000.

The Miskito inhabitants have faced decades of extreme conflict and sadly there are still problems that the Miskito face. The majority of young and adult Miskito are illiterate. This is due to there not being schools in the small villages and so students need to travel to surrounding villages to attend school. The students who are fortunate to attend school, often have to leave because of the high cost of education to join their parents in low paid work.

For the Miskito Indians the typical jobs are manual work, farming and cultivation, however there is a lack of work, which when found is poorly paid and of temporary duration. Many children assist their families within the household and manual work.

A more substantial future is wanted for the young people of Moskitia, where they will be able to gain the education that they deserve thus allowing them to develop a career in their home town.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Since 1966 The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been working within countries of need, so that they can individually become sustainable and the livings of those populating these countries are improved. Today the UNDP is aiding 177 countries and territories providing understandings to help lives and develop resilient nations.

An intention that the UNDP share, are the ‘Millennium Development Goals’ which achieved by 2015 would see:

  • An eradication of extreme poverty and hunger
  • Achievement of universal primary education
  • Promotion of gender equality
  • Deduction of infant mortality
  • Improvement of maternal health
  • Combating HIV/Aids, Malaria and other diseases
  • Assurance of  environmental sustainability
  • Development of global partnerships for development.

The UNDP teaches these countries how to use aid effectively so they can become sustainable. The UNDP has many ongoing projects, in countries like Gaza, South Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Zambia, Indonesia, Haiti and Mali. A large proportion of these projects are focused on health especially relating to HIV/ Aids where their goal is to fight it globally, give aid quicker and strengthen hospitals. Other projects are based within the police force, fighting poverty, aiding refugees, improving transport and working with Law and Order to help prevent corruption.

This is a mission that is also shared with Worldcoo with the fundamental end goals of helping people’s lives, through educating about diseases, health, gender equality and basic human rights.

Like the UNDP, Worldcoo has been investing time into many projects like Agronomic Engineering in Diffa, Niger, where they aim to build a fence around the crop area to protect from animals during the harvest, which will be a benefit to many who are malnourished. Other projects are based in Vietnam, Senegal, Gambia and Nicaragua where there is an intention to improve sanitary conditions, aiding territories to become economically advanced and educational developments within schools.

The UNDP and other like-minded charities have a considerable task ahead of them to achieve the ‘Millennium Development Goals’, however seeing the achievements of the UNDP over the last 47 years the following two years are sure to be extremely productive.

Give a respite to the forest

Wild chimpanzees inhabiting in the Dindefelo Community Reserve, south of Senegal, depend almost exclusively on a fruit called Lare in the local language (Saba senegalensis) at the peak of the dry season. Not only is Lare a keystone resource for chimpanzees, but specifically for the families living in this area who derive a great percentage of their annual income from this wild fruit harvest. It is a very popular product in cities like Dakar, where it is consumed prepared as a juice or just raw. In the past two years  massive exploitation and uncontrolled bush fires have reduced into a minimum the amount of Lare in its natural habitat.

To solve this situation citizens of the Dindefelo Rural Community have taken an extraordinary and courageous decision based on the technical reports from the Jane Goodall Institute Spain (IJGE) and Management Committee Community Nature Reserve Dindefelo (RNCD): To set an ecological truce for the Lare extraction in all the forests of the Community during the year 2013.

This means that many families will no longer economically benefit from the Lare harvest, important income during the year. The role of the income generated by this harvest has an enormous effect on the economy of the harvesters and their families. Due to the Lare truce extraction this year, the Rural Community and the Jane Goodall Institute Spain are financially compensating the families involved. Also and most important, together, they are creating new sustainable alternatives to harvesting wild Lare: They have put in place Lare nursery beds and the saplings are being transplanted to reforest protected areas along with other wild species like Thiale (Spondias mombin), also eaten by chimpanzees. Families who harvested wild Lare are now responsible of taking care, growing and transplanting the Lare nurseries back into the forest.

We don’t know if it’s due to this program, but the fact is that the researchers from The Jane Goodall Institute working in the area have confirmed the return of the chimpanzees to certain important fruiting areas where there used to be conflicts between locals and chimpanzees themselves. Now everyone seems to be more at ease! You can see the video of the Dindefelo chimpanzees, caught on a camera trap put by the research team last week.
