logosrSince this year, the customers of Sanchez Romero Supermarkets can also round up their final ticket and donate their cents to many causes.  Under the Social Round Up camaign, the customers of the company have already raised more than €5,000 to collaborate with CRIS Cáncer to boost the medical research of breast cancer.

logo_downmadridNow, they start a new charity challenge and they collaborate with  Down Syndrome Foundation in Madrid, entity that facilitates the integration of people with Down Syndrome in the family, school, work and social environment with the aim of improving their life quality.

Due to their anatomical and physiological characteristics, children with Down syndrome are more susceptible to suffering from certain types of respiratory and digestive pathologies, which often result in hospital admission with all the complications that this entails.

The goal is to raise the necessary amount so that children with Down Syndrome can access to 100 grants that allow the respiratory and digestive treatments to improve their life quality.

cabecera_medicos

After collaborating with Juegaterapia in order to renew the Pediatric Hemato-Oncology plant of La Paz University Hospital in Madrid (you remember the project HERE), the customers of Promofarma start a new challenge today.

Did you know that Bolivia has one of the  highest percentages of maternal and infant mortality in Latin America with a child mortality rate of 42 deaths per 1,000 live births?

logo_medicosThrough this new challenge, those customers of Promofarma who want it, will be able to collaborate with Médicos del Mundo by adding €1 charity in their shopping basket, with the objective of reduce the maternal and child mortality in Bolivia.

One of the problems is that indigenous women and men have a conception completely different from the Western one when it comes to childbirth. To overcome the resistance to having their children out of their homes and with the aim of reducing maternal and infant mortality, Médicos del Mundo has adapted hospitals with rooms equipped according to indigenous traditions where medical personnel and midwives work together.

Thanks to these intercultural births, infant mortality has decreased in the last three years. With this project you will help reduce maternal and infant mortality.

Thanks to the amount collected by the customers of Promofarma 492 women and 46 men can be assisted and you will help reduce maternal and infant mortality in Bolivia.

The first cause:  Education support for children in vulnerable situations

logo_casalDid you know that in Catalonia the 14% of students don’t have the high school education? Inequality presents a clear territorial dimension and punishes especially some neighborhoods and municipalities in the country, where many families suffer social and economic precariousness. The local entity Casal dels Infants has been working for 35 years with the aim of preventing school failure of more than 2,000 young people at risk of exclusion in Catalonia.

Through the amount collected, the entity will be able to offer support and school reinforcement to those young people from the neighborhoods of Catalonia who concentrate inequality situations and thus promote equal opportunities.

Sports grants for children with cancer

Unfortunately, 1,400 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed each year.

The practice of physical exercise helps children with cancer to be more tolerant to treatments and helps to alleviate the side effects of these. It increases the muscular strength of children, decreases the systematic inflammatory levels and improves the immune function, reducing fatigue.

aladina_noticiaThat is why the Aladina Foundation has launched the Aladina Sports Scholarships for children with cancer and families. Through this initiative, the entity can favor specialized physical exercise therapies for children and adolescents with cancer.

logo-sprinterAfter collecting the necessary amount so that 20 students can participate in activities where Ayuda en Acción promotes gender equality and opportunities (you can remember the project HERE), now Sprinter customers start a new project to promote the practice of physical exercise between children and adolescents.

Thanks to the contribution of Sprinter, 10 children with cancer will be able to participate in these specialized physical therapy therapies for a month.

The total amount collected will go entirely to the entity, who can perform specialized physical therapy therapies for a month.

Remember that, if you want, you can get more information and know in which state this project is found HERE.
