Through this initiative, customers of Pepe Jeans London stores will be able to aid people affected by the health crisis, especially the most vulnerable.

Thus, Pepe Jeans London stores in Spain become the first to carry out this initiative, soon to be followed in other markets such as Portugal, Germany, and France. Through our innovative donation mechanism, in which on this occasion we have used Adyen Giving’s technological solution,  Pepe Jeans London clients will be able to make a micro-donation to charity when paying by card.

This innovative donation system is simple, secure, and completely transparent for customers and stores: donations operate as a different transaction from purchases and will go directly to the Spanish Red Cross.

Coping with the pandemic

Aiming to cope with the effects of the pandemic between all, the global fashion group AWWG will be the first to activate this donation method. When paying by card, their customers will be offered three donation options: 0,5€, 1€, and 2€. 100% of every contribution will go to the Spanish Red Cross.

All We Wear Group will be joined by the technology multinational Mastercard in this effort. Both companies will contribute to the fundraising campaign by matching every donation received until doubling the initial budget of 10.000€.

The funds collected will go to the project “Cruz Roja te Escucha,” whose objective is to offer psychosocial support to the following:

  • Those who, due to their circumstances of illness, loneliness, advanced age, loss of employment, functional diversity, or homelessness, among others, are most affected by the pandemic.
  • Relatives and friends of acutely ill patients or victims who died from the disease caused by COVID-19, and to those hospitalized or isolated at home with severe symptoms.
  • Volunteers and workers of the Red Cross, who are carrying out humanitarian work.

Workers and volunteers of the Red Cross, who are specialists in psychosocial support and accompaniment, will provide this service. Regarding the most complex cases or situations, they will be aided by psychology professionals of the Organization who specialize in different areas of psychological care.

The project: new ICU for patients with Covid19 at Trueta Hospital

hugjt (1)The health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic made the Dr. Josep Trueta University Hospital experience an enormously complex healthcare situation during the months of March, April and May. Once this most complex stage of the pandemic has been overcome, the Trueta is preparing to be able to take on the new wave of income with the maximum guarantees of safety and quality of care.

For this reason, it has created a new stable intensive and semi-intensive care unit, dedicated exclusively to patients affected by COVID-19. This new ICU has a capacity of 28 beds and the technology necessary to attend the most serious patients with the best conditions: respirators, monitors, defibrillators, ultrasound machines, etc. Even so, the unit still needs more materials to be fully equipped.

Through the Charity Rounding Up, the customers of Valvi Supermarkets will be able to help complete the equipment of the new COVID-19 unit of the Trueta Hospital, which will allow patients with severe respiratory problems and other serious and very serious diseases caused by the coronavirus.
