Emergency campaign for Mexico

Telefonica Group, Banco Sabadell and PcComponentes have started emergency campaigns to assist victims in México

NotimexOne week ago, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake shook central Mexico causing great devastation. The catastrophe left more than 300 dead and thousands of victims. Dozens of buildings have been demolished in Mexico City, but also in the states of Mexico, Puebla and Morelos and 400 schools have been damaged.

In front of this situation, one of the groups that are particularly affected are children, who now have to face other threats, such as being separated from their family in the middle of the chaos.

The first hours after a catastrophe such as the one experienced, are crucial to finding survivors, housing the victims in shelters where they can rest safe, receive water and food and restore the general situation.

The signs of solidarity to alleviate the situation have been constant around the world. Among them, those of our companies with cause, who have launched emergency campaigns to maximize efforts and invite all their customers and employees to make a small contribution.

AF_Logotipo_Fundacion_POS_RGB_esTelefonica Group, for example, invites society to make their donation though their corporate page. All the funds collected will be very useful to make hundreds of kids can go back to school and reconstruct their classrooms with the help of Telefonica Foundation and all their volunteers. So far, they have already raised more than €25.000!

In front of this situation, we have started a new fundraising campaign with Telefonica Foundation. The objective is to raise the necessary funds so that the company employees can move to the regions affected by the catastrophe – Hualqui, San Nicolás y Portezuela- and participate in different projects of solidarity and reconstruction of the devastated areas once the emergency has been overcome and the hard reality of zero zone appears. They will do it through Telefonica Corporate Volunteering Program.

 If you want to make your own donation, you can do it through the online platform that we have prepared telefonica.worldcoo.com.

So far, we have raised more than €3.500!

This week we have signed a new deal with Banco Sabadell to address the need for the bank’s customers and employees to have access to proper tools to help those who need it most. Starting today, anyone interested can collaborate on various social and cooperation projects through different channels. For example, customers may make a donation as part of their normal online banking transactions via the https://bancsabadell.worldcoo.com/ platform. Employees, additionally, will be able to do so when purchasing tickets for corporate events or through several internal initiatives.

In this context, the emergency campaign recently launched to help children affected by hurricane Matthew (Haiti) has already yielded fruit: in less than 24 hours, the Banco Sabadell community has donated nearly €10,000 to work with Unicef  on providing drinking water for the youngest victims.

At the event to announce this alliance, Banco Sabadell President Josep Oliu highlighted, “If there is something that makes us great, it is our attitude. This is why we are so proud to offer our people an easy way to collaborate on charity projects and address the emotional need to make a difference using the new services technology has to offer.” Furthermore, he added, “One of the things we value the most about Worldcoo is that they audit each and every project they collaborate with, which is key to have total transparency as to where the money goes.”

Also present was David Camps, director of Marketing at Vicente Ferrer Foundation, with which the bank will tackle the challenge of providing paediatric care for 1,300 children in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. He highlighted, “We are very interested in the Worldcoo concept, especially its ability to persevere.”
