This Christmas, help children in emergency situations

The countdown for Christmas has begun and for these special days, the company wants to help, again, all children who need the most. Nearly 250 million live in countries affected by armed conflict, 28 million are out of their homes, fleeing violence and insecurity.  

In front of this terrible situation, UNICEF has launched “One plus one, it is much more” campaign, aimed at assisting people in an emergency situation through integral interventions related to health, nutrition, water, sanitation, hygiene education and protection.

During this school year, 30 kids will receive school support to improve their education  thanks to Planeta Huerto users, who have been contributing to break poverty cycle. Just like a reminder, today 1 every 4 kids live situations of vulnerability, because many families struggle to meet their basic needs. They will do it through a program leaded by La Obra Social “la Caixa”. Thank you so much to make it happen!

They start a new social project today, which is promote the access to water in Agraharam village, who is located in the second most arid state in India after Rajasthan, with an annual average rainfall of 940mm. These weather conditions affect agriculture, the livelihood of nearly 80% of the population.

Thanks to the contribution of the users of Planeta Huerto, the organisation will be able to build a dam to benefit 1.068 members of the 203 farming families who live in the village, from the positive impact of the construction of the dam.
