The project had the aim to give financial assistance to families having a child with cancer in order to help them to pay medical costs and transport needed for their children’s treatment and to improve the family’s quality of life.
When a parents are informed that one of their children has cancer, their life completely changes. The parents not only must fight for the survival of their child, they also have to deal with all the socioeconomic difficulties that will appear during the illness of their child.
Many parents have to leave their job temporarily because of their child needs care the 24 hours of a day. This fact involve that the economic situation of the family get worse. Added to this situation are the additional costs of medicines and the hospital transfers that make the situation more complicated.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the economic difficulties in families with children with cancer grew worse, for this reason, in 2007 was born Caíco Foundation, a foundation created by parents with children with cancer that wanted to help alleviate the difficulties that appear during the illness of the child.
Thanks to the solidarity of Pc Componentes customers, in 80 days 15.000€ were raised and were assigned to help 20 families with a child with cancer. The grants range are between 500€ and 1.200€ per family.
One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to monitor the funded projects and track every € donated by the users of our e-commerce with a cause. In the following image we show you the report of funding and the monitoring of all the things that Caíco Foundation has made thanks to the help received by the customers of Pc Componentes.
Thanks to all people who helped make this project has been made possible and we take this opportunity to encourage you to continue helping to create a high social impact collaborating with the new Pc Componentes project.
