#NewProject

During the last months, Colombia and Peru have been affected by heavy rains that have caused numerous floods with thousands of people damaged.  

In Peru, numerous rains have affected more than 860. 000 people, 40% of them are children. More than 1.800 schools have been destroyed, 225 bridges have collapsed and more than 3.000 km of roads have been devastated.

Now, entire populations are isolated, without Access to food and unprotected against new floods or landslides.

On the other hand, in Colombia the flood caused by the overflow of Mocoa, Mulato, Sanguyaco and other ravines, cause an avalanche that affected the village of Mocoa, with more than 300 deaths, hundreds of injuries and more than 300 missing people. In addition, there are about 50.000 people affected with 28 affected neighborhoods, 5 of them totally destroyed. .

PC Componentes fights against child cancer

CRIS - Antonio Perez Maria
 “An investment for the life”
In Spain, every year, 1.400 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in children.

logo_CRIS

In front of this frightening figure, there are entities, such as Fundación CRIS Cáncer, which promote and finance research and innovation projects for the treatment and cure of the disease.

This is the case of “Project Gabi”. Gabi was a 13-year-old girl who, after undergoing several standard treatments, couldn’t eradicate her disease. Their parents decided to trust Dr. Antonio Pérez in order to start a new treatment, new in Spain, which consists of transferring to patients large amounts of Natural Killer (NK) cells and memory T cells, which are cells of the immune system specialized in destroying dangerous cells, such as tumor cells. Thanks to this new treatment, Gabi could live two more years.

Since then, the Hospital de la Paz, in Madrid, began to investigate in this type of cellular therapies that can be a very important step for the cure of this disease.

PcComponentes has joined this cause in order to CRIS Cancer could carry out this new clinical trial and enable such treatment to other patients that today have no cure. It is, as Gabi’s mother says, “an investment for the life”.

Through the amount raised, CRIS Cancer will be able to  treat children with leukemia and other solid childhood tumors that don’t respond to conventional or relapsing treatments. Although it is at a very early stage, clinical trials like this raise expectations about the prevention and cure of this disease are very high, but for this, economic investments are needed.

The project will be carried out at the Hospital de la Paz in Madrid, in collaboration with other hospitals and research centers.

logo-adsis-web_3The first social project which they will start collaborate comes from Fundación Adsis, an organization that pursues the challenge of building a more equal and social with the integral promotion of people and groups that are excluded and at risk of social exclusion.

Attendees will help young people, like them, to have equal education opportunities, an important challenge if we consider that in Spain 6 out of 30 teenagers in a classroom are facing economic difficulties that will condition their future.         

The socioeconomic situation of some children and adolescents condition their educational development. 31% of young people at risk of social exclusion do not have internet access from home, and 42% do not have enough tranquillity at home to study and do their homework.

The story of César and MeQuedoUno implication

In 2017, let’s help children with rare disease have quality education

MeQuedoUno starts a new project!

César is a 20 years old student and has the Apert Syndrome, one of the 7.000 rare disease that exist. Today we have the pleasure to present you his testimony and story, so we can know a little bit more which challenges they face and how it’s their day to day.

cesar_olivia“My name is César Díez, I’m studying Informatics and I have Apert Syndrome, a congenital disorder that affects chromosome 10 and is characterized by a general malformation of different bones, mainly of the head and face. It is a disease that, if not controlled in time, can cause blindness, deafness and intellectual deficit. We are born with our fingers and toes together (syndactyly) and my treatment involves multiple operations and long hospital stays, many kilometres far from my house.

I was born in Merida, a city of 60,000 population and with a small hospital. I was the first and only born with my illness in this health centre and the doctors saw so much difficulty in my state that they only gave me 48 hours of life … meanwhile, I tried to fight the most and enjoy my life, like what I’m doing now.

Throughout my life, both my parents and I have fought constantly for an “inclusive education“, that doesn’t discriminate for my physical or intellectual deficiencies and allow me to have access to a quality education.

In spite of my multiple operations and long stays in hospitals, and that on several occasions the educational system have invited me to attend to “special education” classrooms, I have achieved my goal! After finishing the bachelor’s degree, now I’m studying a high degree in “Telecommunications and Information Systems”.

logo-vector-federThe constant work together with the Education Council in Extremadura (Spain) and the FEDER (Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases), has allowed us to take another step to make the access to quality education a reality. For example, we have recently launched the “Protocol for the reception and care of children with rare diseases” in the schools in Extremadura. Our mission is that all children with rare diseases have an educational response adequate to their abilities, potentialities and needs. We’re sure that, all together, we will achieve it “.

mqu-logoNow, the users of MeQuedoUno have the opportunity, like César, to contribute and collaborate with one of the educational projects that the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER) carries out to guarantee access to a quality and equitable education, regardless of their conditions and circumstances.

With their help, in 2017 25 children with rare diseases that attend school will be benefited from the FEDER Education Assistance Service.

SergiFigueres, CEO of Worldcoo and Josep Oliu, BS President

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.”

capc%cc%a7elera_vicente_ferrer_eng

#NewProject

During this school year, 30 kids will receive school support to improve their education  thanks to Planeta Huerto users, who have been contributing to break poverty cycle. Just like a reminder, today 1 every 4 kids live situations of vulnerability, because many families struggle to meet their basic needs. They will do it through a program leaded by La Obra Social “la Caixa”. Thank you so much to make it happen!

They start a new social project today, which is promote the access to water in Agraharam village, who is located in the second most arid state in India after Rajasthan, with an annual average rainfall of 940mm. These weather conditions affect agriculture, the livelihood of nearly 80% of the population.

vicente_ferrer_logoThis situation is what led to Vicente Ferrer Foundation to develop an Ecological Development Plan to save, multiply and share the natural, agricultural and livestock resources of the area.

Thanks to the contribution of the users of Planeta Huerto, the organisation will be able to build a dam to benefit 1.068 members of the 203 farming families who live in the village, from the positive impact of the construction of the dam.
