New charity challenge for the customers of Hawkers!

capcelera_hawkers_save

After financing their last project, with which they collaborated with Unoentrecienmil to support childhood leukemia research (you can remember the project here), the customers of Hawkers start a new charity project.

The cause: Daily meal for children at risk of social exclusionlogo_hawkers

Poverty has serious consequences for children. One of the main problems for families in this situation is nutrition. The lack of resources due to the socioeconomic family situation, as well as the lack of social security benefits such as school food subsidies, lead to 40% of families at risk of social exclusion living in a situation of food insecurity. This puts at risk the correct physical and mental development of the most vulnerable children, those from 3 to 6 years old.

stc_logoIn front of this situation, Save The Children works to reduce the consequences that poverty causes in childhood. For this reason, they provide educational and nutritional support to children who are at risk of social exclusion. Through this project, they will provide food reinforcement to these children and their families.

From now on, the total amount collected by the customers of Hawkers, will be used to provide food reinforcement to these children and their families.

Sports grants for children with cancer

Unfortunately, 1,400 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed each year.

The practice of physical exercise helps children with cancer to be more tolerant to treatments and helps to alleviate the side effects of these. It increases the muscular strength of children, decreases the systematic inflammatory levels and improves the immune function, reducing fatigue.

aladina_noticiaThat is why the Aladina Foundation has launched the Aladina Sports Scholarships for children with cancer and families. Through this initiative, the entity can favor specialized physical exercise therapies for children and adolescents with cancer.

logo-sprinterAfter collecting the necessary amount so that 20 students can participate in activities where Ayuda en Acción promotes gender equality and opportunities (you can remember the project HERE), now Sprinter customers start a new project to promote the practice of physical exercise between children and adolescents.

If in October, the customers of Ticketmaster raised more than €9,000 to help the Spanish Association Against Cancer to offer psychological support to patients of cancer, this month they can support Ana Bella Foundation.

Did you know that 13% of Spanish women have been victims of gender violence and only 27% of them denounce it? There’s an unemployment rate of 22% according to Ministry and INE data, which means that 100,000 women survivors of gender violence without education are at risk of social exclusion.

The most effective way for women to overcome violence is to favor their labor insertion in socially valued jobs. For this reason, at the Ana Bella School, surviving women at risk of social exclusion complete a Personalized Empowerment Itinerary that consists of specific professional training in sales, personal training to enhance their skills as victorious women and a job opportunity trampoline of face to the public as Brand Ambassadors.
