No child without a meal during Christmas: report of funding of the project

Today we are presenting the report of funding and monitoring of the project No child without a meal at Christmas in which PcComponentes collaborated with Aldeas infantiles SOS.

At the beginning of December 2014 we informed you that Pc Componentes joined with Worldcoo and it became a one of our e-commerce with a cause. Its new project had the aim to guarantee a balanced and healthy feeding to children who were living in a vulnerability situation in Spain.

If we make a comparison between the situation of vulnerability in children one year ago and the situation of vulnerability in children now, we realize that the situation hasn’t improved. One of ten children in Spain live under the poverty line and, sadly, this situation can become chronic unless measures are taken.

To help improve the situation of many Spanish children, Aldeas Infantiles SOS launched the Project Children’s Dining Halls in its day centers and it launched a School Lunchroom Program to contribute children of families at risk can eat during Christmas and prevent children from suffering by the insecurity caused by the economic difficulties of their environment.

One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to monitor the funded projects and track every € donated by the users of our e-commerce with a cause.

The customers of Pc Componentes were making their donations every time they make a purchase and, in 50 days, they donated 10.770€ that has been distributed in:

–          School Lunchroom Program of Aldeas Infantiles SOS: 92 children from Madrid, Barcelona and Toledo schools have benefited from the program.

–          Day Centers of Aldeas Infantiles SOS: 3.630€ have been allocated to help to obtain a healthy food to children that go to day centers in Canarias, Madrid and Zaragoza.

In the next picture you can see it all closer:


Thanks to all people who helped make this project has been made possible and we take this opportunity to encourage you to continue helping to create a high social impact.
