#NewProject: Children & Family support in Spain

There is an estimated 700,000 families in Spain with either less than 600€ a month or no income at all. According to AROPE (At Risk Of Poverty and/or Exclusion) an European index, 29.2% of Spanish people are at risk of poverty or exclusion and, consequently, 35% of children lives are affected in these low-income households.

Unfortunately, children are those who suffer most in this situation, both physically and mentally. Ildefonso Hernández, president of SEPAS says that “inadequate nutrition and this discriminatory social situation are associated with mental problems and increase risk of meningitis or other infectious disease, also in mid- to long term inadequate nutrition is associated to metabolic disorders like diabetes or cardiovascular problems, finally, poor nutrition is linked to cognitive development in children”.

In light of this situation, Ayuda en Acción has developed a new program to help families overcome these problems in Spain, this program is called Children & Family Support with the aim to improve, in conjunction with schools, the living condition of families who are in vulnerable situations due to the economic crisis.

With this program, Ayuda en Acción goal is to cover the school children’s needs in 30 schools that are in 8 different communities through scholarships for dining, school supplies, extracurricular activities and educational support activities.

Thanks to this project, Zacaris customers will contribute by helping 2 students to have the chance to have a guaranteed annual scholar lunchroom. With this fact, you not only help 1 child to increase their physical and mental performance, you also help their family to know that their child is guaranteed a diary healthy food.

#NewSponsor & #NewProject: Ulabox & Obra Social “la Caixa” with #NingúnNiñoSinBigote

Ulabox has added to their site the solidary widget that offer to their users the possibility to add 1€ to their purchase to help fund the project chosen by them. The money raised is going to give to the social projects promoted for Obra Social “la Caixa”.

#NingúnNiñoSinBigote has the aim to ensure that the children in need can drink enough milk to cover their aid needs and all of them will have a good feeding.

Nowadays, thousands of families have limited access to milk. In Spain, more than 300.000 children can’t meet their needs of milk, and it especially affects their mental and physical development because they don’t consume sufficient calcium, vitamins, protein and phosphorus.

Obra Social “la Caixa” collaborates with Banco de Alimentos to gather a great quantity of milk and then will donate entirely to help families in need and ensure the good children growth.

Ulabox is the first 100% online supermarket, and now their users will be able to donate 1€ in every purchase for this project. With their help, Banco de Alimentos will distribute milk to 120 children who are at risk of exclusion and their families.

Obra Social “la Caixa” support different programs and initiatives with the aim to help persons and build a society with more opportunities. For these reason, “la Caixa” will donate an extra milk liter every 10 liters collected up to 100.000 liters of milk.

#NewProject PcComponentes & Fundación Caíco; Financial assistance for families with children with cancer.

This spring Pccomponentes and its users will contribute to the Project Financial assistance for families with children with cancer from Caico Foundation to help those families who are in this hard situation.

Childhood cancer includes those tumours diagnosed in children and adolescents below 15 yea rs of age. Today, childhood tumours are becoming more important every day in pediatric pathology. The chance of developing cancer before 15 in Spain is 0.29 in boys and 0.23 for girls, according to data provided by the Foundation. Every year more than 1,200 new cases are diagnosed in Spain.

Childhood tumours differ in many aspects of tumours of adults, from the histological patterns, the anatomical site where you develop or epidemiological, clinical, therapeutic and prognostic aspects. While advances in treatment have increased the survival rate for many childhood cancers, the disease is still the second leading cause of death (following accidents) in children ages 0-14.
