MeQuedoUno improves nutrition of children at risk of social exclusion

Captura

Because of the social and economic situation that Spain has experienced during the last years, many families have been seriously harmed, and all their members have suffered the consequences, especially the youngest.

This Christmas, all the customers of MeQuedoUno have a challenge: improve the currently nutrition of children at risk of social exclusion.

logotipo_aldeas_infantiles_sosThey will do it together with Aldeas Infantiles, an international organization that takes care of the fundamental rights of children.

Through its “Daily Centers” program, the entity offers an adequate socio-educational, therapeutic and integral intervention, promoting strategies that enable an improvement in their personal, family and social well-being.

Specially, the total amount that users of MeQuedoUno collect, will help 30 children at risk of social exclusion receive a meal per day throughout the school year.

The initiative is launched after collaborating with Aladina Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer. MeQuedoUno clients have just funded the total amount needed to fund a grant to improve the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer (you can remember the project HERE).

Saniclown 2

The customers of PcComponentes have a very special challenge this Christmas: bringing smiles in hospitals.

For the first time, they will do it in collaboration with different NGO: AlgaraklownSaniclownPayaSOSpital Pupaclown.

The objective is to make the hospital stay a more pleasant experience for kids from Madrid, Murcia, País Vasco and Valencia. Their mission is to fill spaces of smiles and generate magical and beautiful moments. The work of the clowns allows to create a more relaxed atmosphere and, thus, doctors and nurses work with greater tranquility and can concentrate on the technical aspects of their actions. The relatives, meanwhile, also respond to the game of clowns and stay more relaxed and calm.

With their help, 200 children will receive the attention of the hospital clowns of Saniclown in the “Hospital Gregorio Marañón” in Madrid, of AlgaraKlown in the “Hospital Universitario” in San Sebastián, of PayaSOSpital in the “Hospital Clínico” in Valencia and of PupaClown in the “Hospital Virgen de la Arrixaca” in Murcia.

No child without food this Christmas

capcelera_aldeas

Nicequest users are more solidarity than ever before! After Matthew Hurricane, which struck the Caribbean cost last October, we launched an emergency campaign to help the victims and, trough their collaboration, they have raised €8.000 that will help Oxfam Intermon to send hygienic kits to more than 600 families. Thank you very much! You can remember the project HERE.

logo3Their next challenge will be provide a decent meal per day to 800 children in Bolivia thought SOS Children’s Village during Christmas time. It is an important dare because every day, in every Latin America country, thousands of children lose the care of their families. They have nowhere to find the protection care and support they need for their healthy development, such as access to a healthy and nutritious diet.

In this context, SOS Children’s Villages works in order to guarantee one of the fundamental rights in the life of a child: food, essential for their growth and development.  And now, our friends from Nicequest have the opportunity to collaborate with it too.

This Christmas give away giggles to sick children

For a sick child the fact to have to be hospitalized cause a big change in his life. His routines and his activities are interrupted abruptly and it can cause stress and/or anxiety in the child. Furthermore, when the disease is severe and it obligate the sick child to stay long periods in the hospital, changes are more notables.

With Christmas on the way, this situation is aggravated, apart from the change in his routines, the sick child will not be able to celebrate the Christmas period surrounded by all his family and this fact can cause a sensation of loneliness, anxiety or uncertainty caused by the cold hospitable environment.

Pupaclown Association have as a main aim bring the Clown theatre to the health institutions in order to attend youth and children with psychological, therapeutically and social integration support, improving the quality of care for sick children and young people admitted in the Virgen de la Arrixaca Hospital.

Theodora Foundation features with Giggle Doctors across 8 countries around the world. Giggle Doctors visit sick children that have been hospitalized in order to cover their needs and make their situation in the hospital is more humane.

This Christmas, Pupaclown and Theodora Foundation have come together to support sick children and youth during the hospitalization process to break with the hospital routine through the magic, storytelling, music and the art of clowning, and give them a reason to smile.

It is proven that laughter helps to improve treatments because it has a significant beneficial effects on their health. These professionals always get permission from the children before approaching them and they work in coordination with doctors and nurses who also inform them whether or not to visit a particular child.
