Sinergiaycredito also fundraises for the project

Sinergiaycrédito is an online tech platform which aims to foster social and local economy as well as development cooperation, solidarity and human ethics.

To ensure these goals the platform generates synergies when using its own technology based in trades between users. The trades don’t have to be between same users or at the same time. The system balances all the offers and bids allowing a fairer trade.

Also, Sienrgiaycrédito, integrates social and cooperation projects in the trades. For each 10€ given to a social cause, the user gets a reward of 200€ in credits to spent in trades within the platform.

Here, is where the relationship between Worldcoo and Sinergiaycrédito takes place. The project “Construction of a fenced area for crops” is now listed also inside the Sinergiaycrédito’s platform allowing users to fundraise it.

We expect that this collaboration helps the project in its funding needs and allows Fundació Campaner NGO to bring the needed help to the beneficiaries of Diffa.

Cases of Noma disease progressively rise in Nigeria

In 2006 126.000 Nigerians were affected by the Noma disease. Since then, this number has progressively raised . One of the main problems, apart from the entrenched malnutrition already discussed on this blog, is that a lot of people think Noma is an act of God, others think it’s ancestral curse or the anger of God.

This situation has lead the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, to launch a campaign against the disease together with the Paul Jegede Foundation, and sponsored by Japaul Oil and Maritime Services. To know more about this campaign the local newspaper Vanguard, is publishing detailed information.

In Worldcoo we are also worried about the Noma disease. That’s why we have the Construction of a fenced area for crops project together with Fundació Campaner NGO. In this case to eradicate Noma in Diffa, a small town in the border between Niger and Nigeria. Are you helping us?

If you want to know more about Niger, Noma and the Fundació Campaner NGO, we are pleased to encourage you to visit the photographic exhibition which will take place in Les Cotxeres Casinet in Barcelona, from April 15th to 28th. Full details here.

Fundació Campaner’s work in Diffa

In 2006 Fundació Campaner built a school in Diffa, to ensure free schooling for the most unprivileged children in the region. Also, they have a local shelter, as well as other projects.

Since 2006, the most unprivileged children in Diffa can go to school thanks to Fundació Campaner NGO. Nowadays this school has 540 children who are in Primary School. Education is free for all of them, and also the scholar material they need is given by the NGO. The school has ten classrooms, latrines and a playground where children can play. It employs ten teachers hired by the Fundació, all native of the area.

Fundació Campaner NGO also has other projects there. In 2004, they restructured a shelter in Diffa which takes in child’s with Noma affection and orphan child’s. Now, about 30 children are live in the shelter, amount that has been changing over the years.

The house has two main rooms for children, bathrooms, living room, kitchen and a garden. Eleven people are now working there, all native of the area. They are responsible for maintaining both: the home, and children’s welfare and education. Every people who work for the Fundació Campaner NGO has about 15 indirect people who live from their salary.

Preventing Noma is a must, but, what happens with ill children?

Fundació Campaner’s first priority is to prevent Noma. As we have already explained here, the project: the fenced area for crops construction is a fundamental goal to avoid malnutrition in Diffa, one of the principal causes of the disease.

The WHO (World Health Oraganization) estimates that 140,000 new cases of Noma occur each year and of these, only 10% survive. That means that 126,000 die each year, mainly in sub-Saharan countries from Senegal to Ethiopia, a region known as “the Noma belt”.

Thus, the prevention is fundamental, but there are also lots of children infected who need to be treated. Its treatment is very easy and cheap: if the condition is detected in the early stage, progression can be prevented with only the use of mild antibiotics and immediate nutritional rehabilitation. Fundació Campaner is also aware of this, and they have decided to start the construction of a hospital in Diffa, Niger. Fundació Campaner wants to make everybody part of it, feeling complicit with the sick and underprivileged children assistance in the country.

Worldcoo gives its full support to this foundation and its projects, because we believe we can change Diffa’s children reality.

They are not guilty of their situation. They all deserve something better and you can change it. It’s up to you. Are you in?
