Drinking water wells in Malawi

capcelera_uvinum

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa. Living conditions are harsh, almost 90% of the population lives on subsistence agriculture. There are no infrastructures that channel the water of the great lake of the country, the farmers depend on rainwater, which makes them extremely vulnerable.

355Once collected the necessary amount to guarantee that 400 children receive annual treatment against childhood malnutrition in Kenia (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Uvinum start a new challenge in order to distribute drinking water in Malawi.

active_logoThey will do it together with Active Africa, a NGO which is dedicated to improving the socio-economic and sustainable development of the poorest rural populations in Malawi and Kenya.

Thanks to the construction of a water well, the population of Nkhotakota (one of the most deprived regions of Malawi), will avoid having to collect water in exposed places (such as rivers, streams, lakes or ponds), a great source of water diseases.

At the same time, women and children and children in the region will not have to travel long distances to find water, which will facilitate the continued enrolment of children, especially in the case of girls.

Euro to euro, Uvinum’s customers will facilitate that Active Africa can build a well in the district of Nkhotakota and provide Access to drinking water to 600 people.

MeQuedoUno improves nutrition of children at risk of social exclusion

Captura

Because of the social and economic situation that Spain has experienced during the last years, many families have been seriously harmed, and all their members have suffered the consequences, especially the youngest.

This Christmas, all the customers of MeQuedoUno have a challenge: improve the currently nutrition of children at risk of social exclusion.

logotipo_aldeas_infantiles_sosThey will do it together with Aldeas Infantiles, an international organization that takes care of the fundamental rights of children.

Through its “Daily Centers” program, the entity offers an adequate socio-educational, therapeutic and integral intervention, promoting strategies that enable an improvement in their personal, family and social well-being.

Specially, the total amount that users of MeQuedoUno collect, will help 30 children at risk of social exclusion receive a meal per day throughout the school year.

The initiative is launched after collaborating with Aladina Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer. MeQuedoUno clients have just funded the total amount needed to fund a grant to improve the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer (you can remember the project HERE).

Don’t forget that you can follow the donation process HERE.

TicketMaster joins Worldcoo community!

WELCOME!

logo_worldcoo_ticketWe are super proud to see that every time there are more companies who offer their users the possibility to collaborate with social projects around the world. In this occasion, it does it one of the biggest: TicketMaster, the world’s leading ticket sales company and first in the sector in Spain.

This means that from now on, when we buy a ticket for going to the theatre, to a concert or to a soccer stadium, for example, we will have the option to add one euro for a concret social cause, like poverty eradication, scientific research or social inclusion.

Each month, TicketMaster will collaborate with a specific NGO, such as “Theodora Foundation, “Unicef” or “Oxfam Intrmon”.

Its first challenge: facilitate the access to drinking water.

The conflict in Lake Chad, caused by the expansión of the Boko Harem group and the military response, implies immense and unknown suffering for millions of people in one of the poorest regions of the world.

In total, more than 11 million people need urgent help. Of these, 7 are at risk of hunger, 450,000 are children.

Insecurity prevents people from accessing basic social services and has destroyed infrastructure. That’s why the work of organizations like Oxfam Intermón is increasingly important. The entity works in the area to deal with this situation, ensuring access to food and drinking water for the displaced population in the area’s basin: Chad, Niger and Nigeria.

On this occasion, Ticketmaster customers will have the opportunity to collaborate with them to rehabilitate and build wells that ensure the distribution of drinking water to people who have fled their homes and communities.

In December they will collaborate with “Theodora Foundation” and throughout 2018, with many other NGO such as “Vicente Ferrer Foundation“, “Uno Entre Cien Mil” or “Unicef“, among others.

One week for GivingTuesday!

Next Tuesday,  we will celebrate GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

CapturaCelebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Its main mission is to dedicate a day around the world, this year on November 28, to celebrate the action of giving, be it food, money, time (volunteering), second-hand objects, etc. It is born as a counterpart to the already famous #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday; days in which, as you know, the massive purchase of gifts is promoted.

Although all the “Companies With a Cause” that collaborate with Worldcoo encourage this action day after day, we don’t want to miss the  opportunity to claim, especially that day, the need to share and collaborate with social causes.

Promofarma, MeQuedoUno, Sprinter or Planeta Huerto are some of the companies that have joined the movement with different special actions for that day.

 Last year, during this day in Spain we raised more than € 500,000 for 321 projects; for this 2017, the goal is to reach € 700,000.

A home for abandoned dogs

worldcoo-amigosperro-acogida

nuevologomascoterosOur friends from Mascoteros, the online shop for pets and animals, have proved being one of the most social committed. Few days ago, we announced that they had completed their first challenge, in which they have helped Daina Foundation to fight against the abandonment of elderly dogs.  Crispín, Conan or Atila were some of the dogs that they helped with all their contributions. If you want, you can remember the project HERE.

In this second occasions, they will collaborate with Amigos del Perro Foundation, an entity that develops different activities, from the collection of abandoned animals, until the reintegration of the same ones in new families through the adoption.

logo_whiteSometimes, when abandoned dogs are collected, they need a more specific environment than a cage, either because they are ill, are older, are a puppy, or need surgery after which they require monitoring and medication control. There are also animals that need socialization and education. In all these cases, a foster house is the solution.

Fosters houses are also very important in cases where the dog is already booked but it will take some time until it is collected. During this time, the dog is educated and socialized so that when he reaches his new family, the adaptation is easy and fast.

The new challenge of Mascoteros will be now ensure the maintenance and veterinary care in the Foster Home to abandoned dogs and promote their adoption.

Remember that you can follow the donation process HERE.
