Infectious diseases, lack of food, lack of medicines and medical personnel make the health situation in Ethiopia one of the scarcest in the world.
Ethiopia is one of the countries in the world with fewer neurosurgeons and worse neurosurgery facilities. Unfortunately, head injuries are becoming very common causes of disability and death in the country due to traffic accidents and violence.
In front of this scenario, the Dr. Clavel Foundation works together with the Adama Hospital to in order to improve the health, safety and quality of life of the patients of the Oromia region. They move every two or three months with a team consisting of 1 neurosurgeon, 1 anesthetist and 1 operating room nurse for 10 days to Ethiopia. The purpose of these expeditions is to assist patients with spinal and brain diseases, to train local doctors and nurses to disseminate the specialty of neurosurgery and that these can assist patients when the Dr. Clavel Foundation is not in the field.
During the visits at the Adama Hospital, neurosurgeons perform clinical sessions for the training of medical students and recent graduates in the specialty of Neurosurgery. Classes of two hours are established and attended by about 40 students.
Now, the customers of Uvinum can collaborate with the entity with the main objective of training neurosurgeons for the consolidation of the Neurosurgery Unit at the Adama Hospital (Ethiopia) to improve the health, safety and quality of life of the patients of the Oromia region.

One million micro-donations that have helped to implement nearly 200 social and cooperation projects around the world. And what is more important, more than 163.000 people have benefited directly through any of these initiatives.
From our beginnings, our main objective has been to help NGOs to find the economic funds needed to carry out their projects. Day to day, we have worked constantly in order to develop new and better tools available to companies that favor micro-donations around the world.

As you know, since last October, Ticketmaster offers their customers the chance to collaborate with social causes though our charity widget.
Each month, Ticketmaster has supported a different cause and its customers have had the opportunity to add € 1 (or more) to their purchase and show their social commitment. The response of the initiative has been so good that today they have already raised more than € 30,000!
This amount has been allocated to 8 social entities so that they carry out their social projects: Ayuda en Acción, Oxfam Intermón, Fundación Theodora, RAIS, Fundación Unoentrecienmil, Fundación Vicente Ferrer, Unicef and Voces.
Thanks to this, Ticketmaster customers have collaborated with medical research to cure leukemia, help the homeless or promote the labor insertion of women in India, among others.
Celia Carrillo, Chief Marketing Officer of Ticketmaster Spain, emphasizes that “for Ticketmaster, collaborating with Worldcoo is a priority because it allows us to respond to a social demand from our own clients. Now, they can contribute quickly and effectively with different causes of solidarity in their purchasing processes. “
For his part, Sergi Figueres, CEO of Worldcoo, adds that “through the union with Ticketmaster, we have detected that the world of entertainment and culture has an important component of solidarity. Since we started our collaboration with Ticketmaster, donors have increased every month and the response from all of them has been more than positive. “

Now, they initiate a new challenge so that children with autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) can carry out their therapy together with dogs, something that will increase their motivation and, consequently, the results of the therapy they follow.
They will do it together with Bocalán Foundation, an entity characterized by the inclusion of animals within therapeutic or educational processes with different groups that allow greater participation.
And it is that, often, people with autism show alterations in communication and social interaction, causing them difficulties in relating and understanding social behaviors, as well as difficulties in the language. Dogs help to capture the attention of children and encourages their participation in therapy by being a living being that moves, has different textures, smells and interacts directly with them.
The challenge of the Mascoteros clients will be to obtain the necessary capital so that 10 children with autism can benefit from the assisted therapy with dogs for 4 months.
Maxcolchon joins our Companies with a Cause network!
Often, when we are in a difficult and complicated situation, having a reason that excites us and keeps our mind occupied, can be a key piece to give a boost to our day to day and break with the routine that we are used to.
It’s the same with the youngest ones; even more if they are children who suffer from a serious illness. Having a dream to pursue and hope to make it come true brings hope for the future, happiness and strength necessary to overcome their illness.
This is what Make-A-Wish Foundation does. Since 1999 they have been working to make dreams come true for children with serious illnesses.
Sick children and their families live in a harsh routine that transforms their reality. However, despite being children suffering from serious diseases, they are still children: children who play, laugh, cry and are also deluded. The entity works together with the child and his/her family in order to make their dreams come true.
Today we talk about it because we have recently signed a new collaboration agreement with one of the great dream experts: Maxcolchon, online reference in the manufacture and sale of rest products.
In addition to being the online reference in its sector, Maxcolchon is caracterized by a strong social commitment. Since its creation, in 2009, it has collaborated with different social causes in different ways.
Now, through the Worldcoo solidarity widget, Maxcolchon goes a step further and offers all its customers the opportunity to collaborate with Make-A-Wish so that, through their online store, they can comply not only his own dream, but also that of the little ones who need it most.
The challenge of Maxcolchon’s customers is to help Timothy to fulfill their illusion. Timothy is a 9 year old boy who has a passion that helps him when, because of his oncological illness, he can’t go to school, during treatments, in the hospital. It is a passion that he shares with his little brother Kenji and that helps him to build a world in which everything is possible: LEGOLAND. A multicolored world that helps him in the difficult moments to continue fighting against the disease. And his great hope is to visit LEGOLAND and enjoy it with his family. Timothy knows that he has to work to achieve it … and that there are many people who are willing to help him so that, piece by piece, his illusion becomes a reality.
The customers of Promofarma have started their challenge #10! In the past one, they collected the necessary amount in order to Aladina Foundation could organize activities that would help more than 100 hospitalized children to escape from the hospital routine (you can remember the project HERE).

To do this, they will collaborate with “Cris contra el cáncer” Foundation, a private and independent organization that promotes and finances research projects for the treatment and cure of cancer.
Euro to Euro, the total amount collected will be used to collaborate with the research led by Dr. Alberto Ocaña and Dr. Atanasio Pandiella that aims to identify the causes associated with resistance to some treatments and develop new drugs to improve the prognosis and the cure rate.
