The effects of the intense conflict taking place in Syria and much of Iraq have generated a crisis of unprecedented refugees and migrants in Europe.
Miles of families have fled the horror in desperate search of a decent life. With these families travel children and many of them lose their parental care exposing to suffer serious consequences such as abuse, trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation, detention or drug trafficking.
At the same time, many other families have remained in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS t is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighbouring countries.
From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children refugees that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.
In order to help Aldeas Infantiles SOS, the customers of our e-commerce with a cause Pc Componentes have had the opportunity to make a donation to help improve the situation of all the refugees.
Thanks to their help, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will be able to help children traveling alone, young mothers and mothers with young children with malnutrition and protect them from the effects of war and displacement.
With the 6.000€ donated by Pc Componentes customers, 200 refugees will receive an emergency kit valued at 20€. This kit contains food and basic products as clothes, hygiene products and specific equipment needed to meet refugee’s needs.
“We don’t turn away from the desolation. We will find the way to contribute in this global crisis”, (Richard Pichler, general secretary of Aldeas Infantiles SOS).
