hugjt (1)The health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic made the Dr. Josep Trueta University Hospital experience an enormously complex healthcare situation during the months of March, April and May. Once this most complex stage of the pandemic has been overcome, the Trueta is preparing to be able to take on the new wave of income with the maximum guarantees of safety and quality of care.

For this reason, it has created a new stable intensive and semi-intensive care unit, dedicated exclusively to patients affected by COVID-19. This new ICU has a capacity of 28 beds and the technology necessary to attend the most serious patients with the best conditions: respirators, monitors, defibrillators, ultrasound machines, etc. Even so, the unit still needs more materials to be fully equipped.

Through the Charity Rounding Up, the customers of Valvi Supermarkets will be able to help complete the equipment of the new COVID-19 unit of the Trueta Hospital, which will allow patients with severe respiratory problems and other serious and very serious diseases caused by the coronavirus.

During this pandemic, we are proud to see how more and more companies are launching emergency campaigns to mitigate the effects of this situation among the most vulnerable people.

logo_Barça_ENGToday, we are happy to start a new collaboration with  Barça Foundation! Under the claim “Be on the side of vulnerable children”, the organization launches a new fundraising campaign in order that children at risk of social exclusion can continue their participation in the educational programs that the Foundation carries out.

At Worldcoo we have created the online platform https://fundacio-fcbarcelona.worldcoo.com where anyone who wants can make their contributions in an easy and effective way.

The Barça Foundation has supported the most vulnerable children and youth for the last 25 years through sport, games and physical activity to promote social inclusion, access to education, and the prevention of bullying. During the current emergency caused by COVID-19, the Barça Foundation continues working so that no child is left offside. They are adapting their methodologies so that the most vulnerable children can continue participating in their activities from home.

Charity Rounding Up for AMPANS

LOGO VIENASince some months ago, Viena offers in all their establishments the Charity Rounding Up, a new solution that enables people to make micro-donations for charity each time they pay with card.

The first campaign they collaborated with was dedicated to the research for a future without Alzheimer, together with the Pasqual Maragall Foundation. During the past months, all their customers have had the chance to collaborate with the Gasol Foundation to promote the physical exercise to improve children’s health.

“Cent to cent, we create opportunities”

logo_ampansNow, Viena starts a new campaign with the main aim of promote the labor insertion of people with intellectual disabilities, and they will do so with AMPANS Foundation.

The AMPANS Foundation accompanies people with intellectual disabilities of vulnerable situations so that they can develop their life projects, ensuring their rights, offering support and creating opportunities that make it possible.

ampans3

Having a job makes people live fully, feel useful and contribute to society. In AMPANS, people with intellectual disabilities are helped to obtain and maintain a workplace in standardized environments, but when the incorporation into the world of business is not possible, the foundation creates adapted workplaces, with a wide range of possibilities to find the right place for each person.

One of the labor insertion projects that AMPANS wants to promote is an agro-social tourism project on the Urpina region, in the heart of Catalonia.

Cent to cent, the customers of Viena will collect to promote the agro-social tourism project that AMPANS develops in Urpina (Catalonia). The initiative will provide a workplace for 40 people with special needs in the coming years, and will raise awareness for the socio-labor inclusion of people with disabilities to the more than 20,000 visitors who are expected that will visit the farm.  

 

You can follow the donation process and obtain more information about the project here.

The experience of Miquel and Mireia in the education community in Sopachuy (Bolivia)

capcelera_ENG

Miquel and Mireia are two of the ambassadors of Worldcoo that, in a voluntary way, help us to audit and visit some of the projects we have helped to fund with the help of all the “companies with a cause” that collaborate with us.

Some months ago, they went to Camboya, where they had the opportunity to know first-hand the labor that the NGO S.A.U.C.E. does, an entity that, since 2011, helps people at risk of social exclusion of the zone.

NRbZ7qZsNow, they have travelled to Sopachuy, one of the villages with major childhood malnutrition index in Bolivia. In fact, every 100 kids in Sopachuy, 24 present a state of chronic malnutrition. Through the help of Nicequest users, the NGO Ayuda en Acción was able to increase the availability of food resources, teach how to increase family income from cultivation and promote good hygiene practices and responsible consumption. You can remember the project HERE.

We spoke with Miquel and Mireia about their experience after visiting Sopachuy with Ayuda en Acción.

Miquel and Mireia, how do you describe Sopachuy?

Sopachuy is a municipality formed by 9 communities spread over a wide territory. We went to Amancaya, one of the most important. To get there, it took us 4 hours by car from Sucre, the nearest city. The last hour and a half, the road became an unpaved road that usually becomes impassable in times of heavy rains. There is no type of transport that reaches the community, and the only way for the inhabitants to leave is on foot.

The community has an agrarian subsistence economy organized in family gardens. Most of the corn is grown and vegetables and vegetables have recently been introduced. There is a very basic livestock based on pigs and animals for field work.

The streets of the village are dirt with large holes made by rainwater. The houses are made of adobe, although they are beginning to build with billets. Since 3 years ago, the houses have electricity. Running water is not present in all houses and is not potable, and for this reason most people go to the river to wash their clothes, clean themselves and pick them up for cooking and drinking.

The community has a health center that includes 4 other communities (San Isidro, Achatalas, Chavarria and Alisos) and a primary and secondary school. This year they have 250 students between 6 and 16 years old. Some of the children have to walk up to an hour and a half every day to get to school.

sopachuy1

How are its inhabitants?

The inhabitants of Amancaya are Quechua and this is their mother tongue. They are extended families and usually have more than 4 children. Their educational level is very basic, probably the majority only came to attend primary school. In general we seem introverted and closed people.

They are Catholics and maintain some traditions related to the Pachamama and the tribute to the land.

What are the main consequences after the implementation of the social program promoted by Ayuda en Acción?

sopachuy3The main effects easily visible in the community have been the improvements in the school (new kitchen, sink, yard cleaning), the new health center and the improvement in the hygienic and alimentary habits of the population.

Thanks to the actions carried out, cases of child malnutrition (under 5 years of age) have been reduced. Before the start of the project, 21% of the children suffered from severe malnutrition, now 5%.

During the visit, you have had the opportunity to talk with some of the families that participated in the project. What do they think about it?

After the visit to Sopachuy, the gratitude is the most common and sincere feeling that all its inhabitants transmitted to us. It is highly valued that the help has been made in the form of “action” in which they have had to take part because they have felt involved and have been aware that in their hands is the possibility of improving and pulling ahead.

Elvira, elementary school teacher says, “What I liked about this project is that they made us work. Help comes and goes, but the spark to work hasn’t left.

Although the project ended a few weeks ago, the habitants of Sopachuy continue to work in order to continue improving their quality of life. What are their priorities today?

In order, their priorities are:

  1. sopa5Maintain habits learned in hygiene and healthy eating.
  2. Retain young people in school so that they finish high school.
  3. Settle the agrarian economy to avoid having to leave the town.
  4. Health challenges related to HIV, pregnancies in adolescence and continue working in the monitoring of malnutrition.

In general, how would you describe the experience of your visit in Sopachuy?

Being able to visit this project has given us the opportunity to get to know another reality of Bolivia, a reality that is widespread but unknown at the same time. The rural environment lives in precarious conditions and with a very low quality of life.

In relation to the project, we were very pleased to be able to visit a success story in which the involvement of all the affected agents (NGOs, teachers, health center, parents, students, municipal government) has been achieved to achieve its objective. And this is palpable with the reactions of the people; they have assimilated and acquired the NGO’s proposals as their own.

Finally, we have corroborated that the great advances are made with small actions. The most important thing is that they are appropriate proposals and adapted to the needs and capacities of the area of ​​action. In this specific case, we have seen an action plan that fits with the casuistry of the environment and this has led to the success of the project.

We celebrated the 2nd Worldcoo Volunteer Day!

capcelera_voluntariat

Last Friday, we changed our computers and notebooks for paint brushes. In the context of Giving Tuesday  we wanted to spend, in a direct and personal manner, a morning together with those most in need for the second time.

We were with our colleagues fromObra Social Hospital San Juan de Dios, an entity with which we have collaborated several times. The objective was to participate in the rehabilitation of a flat, supervised by the same entity, where young people newly arrived to Spain live.

We spent a very different and productive morning in Sant Vicenç dels Horts (Barcelona). It was a good occasion to share a good time working as a team all together and, also, to know from first-hand the great job that Obra Social does with the management of insertion flats that promote autonomy and offer a home for young newcomers.

Following, some of the pictures from last Friday.

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.

HERE you can see the actual fundraising status for each project.
