Access to drinking water for displaced people in South Sudan

capcelera_acnur

The customers of Promofarma start a new fundraising campaign in order to collaborate with ACNUR/UNHCR.

More than a third of the 12 million citizens of South Sudan are displaced, and more than a half of the population is affected by the crisis in the country.

Promofarma_LOGOThe customers of Promofarma have already raised the necessary funds so that Médicos del Mundo can improve the delivery room facilities in Bolivia and reduce maternal and child mortality in the country (you can remember the project here). Now, they start a new social challenge with the main aim of ensure that displace people from South Sudan have access to drinking water.

Vertic300All the funds collected will go to ACNUR. The political and security situation in the country remains unstable and armed conflicts persist, as well as assassinations, kidnappings, rapes and a general state of anarchy. UNHCR is assisting people who are in a situation of vulnerability due to the ongoing emergency and responding to basic needs.

The organization is working to extend the water supply network, rehabilitating at least 50% of the existing water points and protecting 70% of the water supply facilities.

The main purpose of Promofarma is to raise up to €3,000. With this amount, 500 refugees will benefit from drinking water systems for one year.

We remind you that you can get more information about this campaign and check the fundraising status HERE.

Starting this week, their customers will have the opportunity to round up the total amount of their purchase and collaborate to support people who have multiple sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease that affects more than 2,5 million people in the world.

The new mechanism, which is already working in some establishments, will be implemented progressively during June in all bonÀrea supermarkets.

El project: support for people with Multiple Sclerosis

Among others, one of the consequences of people who are diagnosed with this disease, is the progressive loss of abilities to carry out different day-to-day functions on their own, such as dressing or walking.

The full amount raised through the Social Round Up will help people with MS to participate in therapies and neurorehabilitation sessions that help them to reduce the impact of the disease and guarantee their personal autonomy.

The project will be carried out through the different organizations that work for people with Multiple Sclerosis in each region where bonÀrea has establishments, such as the Fundació Esclerosi Múltiple in Catalonia, the Aragonese Foundation of EM, EM Navarra, the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation Madrid, the Association of the Valencian Community of EM and the Riojana Association of EM.

Education for children in India

Hawkers starts a new fundraising campaign in favor of Mumbai Smiles

Bombay has 20 million population; 60% of them reside in conditions of absolute unhealthiness and poverty in the extensive and numerous slums. 2.4 million are children without schooling and 1.1 million are working minors.

mumbaiEntities such as Mumbai Smiles contribute to eradicate this situation through education, especially of the little ones. The entity currently manages 13 kindergartens in precarious settlements (Kamathipura, Khetwadi, Ghatkopar, Govandi and Deonar), which allow 260 children to attend school.

Each kindergarten has a teacher and an assistant who educate the children from 9:00 to 12:00 noon, from Monday to Friday. Sometimes the fathers and mothers of these children don’t have the opportunities to offer them better care, so kindergartens often represent a home outside the home for the children.

This is the case of Dipali, Anjali and Meenakshi, three sisters of 4, 3 and 2 years old who are part of the Govandi kindergarten. His parents work in construction and, like many others, don’t have time to take care of their daughters. When the Bombay Smiles team contacted them, the girls’ live changed completely.

Govandi case

Until then, they didn’t know routines or schedules, and lunchtime never arrived. Through the entity came the opportunity to go to school and, with it, the possibility of acquiring the appropriate knowledge for their age, receive care and participate in the nutrition program.

Today, girls go to kindergarten every day, smile more and roam less. They are growing and learning fast.

The commitment of Hawkers

hawkersFrom today, all customers of Hawkers who wish, have the opportunity to add 1 € solidarity to their basket and collaborate with the entity in order to school those children / as 2 to 6 years, several of the slums and most depressed neighborhoods of Bombay to prevent them from falling into exploitation networks and expand their opportunities in the future.

How to collaborate

Once you have selected the product (s) you wish to purchase, go to a shopping cart. On the back, click on the option “add 1 € solidarity to my purchase” and continue with the usual purchase process.

Job placement for young people at risk of social exclusion

capcelera_adsis

This May, the customers of Ticketmaster  can add €1 for charity and collaborate with Adsis Foundation

2 out of 5 young people under 25 years of age do not have a job. This implies a youth unemployment rate of 33.4% compared to 15.3% in the EU (INE, 4Q 2018 and Eurostat, Oct 2018).

88W4qVTz_400x400In front of this situation, the Adsis Foundation works to reduce the levels of inequality and offer adolescents and young people with employment difficulties the resources to get out of situations of social exclusion.  

Young people are treated in a comprehensive and global manner, making them protagonists of their growth process, helping them to define their educational, work and social itinerary and focusing on those aspects in which they present the greatest difficulties.

Through this project, the customers of Ticketmaster will collaborate with the organization and it will provide cooking skills to young people from different provinces of Spain such as Barcelona, Canary Islands, Madrid and Guipúzcoa.

logo_ticketmasterYoung people will be trained with technical and transversal competences and skills so that they can enter the workplace with greater security and with tools that are useful for them to deal with selection processes or conflicts that may arise in the workplace.

Education for young people

capcelera_impulsa

In line with the Labour Day, the different small ecommerce that collaborate with us through the charity widget, start today a new challenge in order to support the access to education for young people.

Did you know that in Spain, 32% of young people are excluded from the state scholarship system, between 40% -50% fail in the medium-level formal education cycles and 32% do not have a high school diploma?

Many students can’t continue with their formal education for economic reasons and many of those who start drop out due to lack of personal support

logo_impulsaIn front of this situation, organizations such as Fundación Impulsa work in order that all students have the same opportunities of studies.

Impulsa wants to give them the opportunity to achieve it, preventing their economic and social situation from being a barrier. They assist the young people transversally through the foundation’s scholarships by providing new professional opportunities to which they could not have had access.

With more than 100 successful cases, Impulsa has achieved that 95% of the scholarship students finish their studies. Sixty-two percent of them continue their studies at a higher level than at the end of Vocational Training. And 71% of young people get a job when they finish their studies.

 

Through this campaign, young studies with socio economic difficulties will have the opportunity to continue their studies.

We remind you that, if you want, you can have more information and follow the fundraising status HERE.

Conservation of chimpanzees and biodiversity in Senegal

capcelera_PH

Did you know that the chimpanzee of West Africa is at risk of extinction? In Senegal, it is estimated that its population is about 500 individuals.

planeta huertoAfter raising the necessary funds to facilitate the access to drinking water in Tanzania (you can remember the project here), now the customers of Planeta Huerto can add €1 for charity and collaborate with the Jane Goodall Institute.
