Continuing socio-educational activity in summer is key to preventing risky behaviour and offering opportunities that normally young people at risk of social exclusion do not have access to.  This is, among other, one of the main priorities of Adsis Foundation and now the customers of PcComponentes will be able to contribute to this same cause.

These are young people who are in situation of vulnerability and because of economic limitations they do not have access to leisure activities.

Fundación Adsis works to turn situations of inequality into opportunities. During the school year, it offers emotional and educational support to children and adolescents and is also present during the holidays, to continue the work done with the children during the year and void situations of neglect and street and at the same time give young people the opportunity to have a vacation.

The project had the aim to give financial assistance to families having a child with cancer in order to help them to pay medical costs and transport needed for their children’s treatment and to improve the family’s quality of life.

When a parents are informed that one of their children has cancer, their life completely changes. The parents not only must fight for the survival of their child, they also have to deal with all the socioeconomic difficulties that will appear during the illness of their child.

Many parents have to leave their job temporarily because of their child needs care the 24 hours of a day. This fact involve that the economic situation of the family get worse. Added to this situation are the additional costs of medicines and the hospital transfers that make the situation more complicated.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the economic difficulties in families with children with cancer grew worse, for this reason, in 2007 was born Caíco Foundation, a foundation created by parents with children with cancer that wanted to help alleviate the difficulties that appear during the illness of the child.

Thanks to the solidarity of Pc Componentes customers, in 80 days 15.000€ were raised and were assigned to help 20 families with a child with cancer. The grants range are between 500€ and 1.200€ per family.

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.

Children refugees receive more help

The effects of the intense conflict taking place in Syria and much of Iraq have generated a crisis of unprecedented refugees and migrants in Europe.

Miles of families have fled the horror in desperate search of a decent life. With these families travel children and many of them lose their parental care exposing to suffer serious consequences such as abuse, trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation, detention or drug trafficking.

At the same time, many other families have remained in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS t is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighbouring countries.

From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children refugees that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.

In order to help Aldeas Infantiles SOS, the customers of our e-commerce with a cause Pc Componentes have had the opportunity to make a donation to help improve the situation of all the refugees.

Thanks to their help, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will be able to help children traveling alone, young mothers and mothers with young children with malnutrition and protect them from the effects of war and displacement.

With the 6.000€ donated by Pc Componentes customers, 200 refugees will receive an emergency kit valued at 20€. This kit contains food and basic products as clothes, hygiene products and specific equipment needed to meet refugee’s needs.

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:

Help and protection to unaccompanied children refugees

Five years ago, as a result of factors like corruption, injustice, inequality, human rights violations and poverty a war began in Syria. This war has caused one of the worst refugee crisis of the century.

Since the beginning on the war, thousands of families have fled searching for a decent living environment, while other families have stayed in the country. According to Aldeas Infantiles SOS, it is been estimated that there are 7.6 million Syrians that have been internally displaced and nearly 4 million of people have been displaced or are displaced by neighboring countries.

Unfortunately, the main victims of the war are the children. Many children have only knew the war, other have had to leave the school and the woman can’t give birth in hospitals because they are destroyed or they have no medical staff. Worst of all, are the thousands of violations, abuses and child exploitation that many children have suffered because they have remained alone and have no protection.

From the beginning of the Syrian conflict, Aldeas Infantiles SOS has worked to give their help to families and children that are in Syria or that have been displaced to some of the countries where Aldeas Infantiles SOS are present. But they not only are giving response to urgent needs, they are also helping unaccompanied children to be reunited with their families.

Thanks to the solidarity of Pc Componentes customers, 200 refugees, especially unaccompanied children, young mothers, mothers with children (especially malnourished children under 5 years) and pregnant women will receive an emergency kit valued at 20€. This kit contains food and basic products as a clothes, hygiene products and specific equipment needed to meet refugee’s needs.
