In recent years, both companies and individuals have been going through a period of economic uncertainty, where it is necessary to have mutual support in order to make the world a better place.
Despite this situation, at AB Apartment Barcelona, we are very aware of the unfavourable situations that millions of people experience on a daily basis. For this reason, we try to do our bit to improve the quality of life of all those who are in a situation of vulnerability.
In accordance with our social commitment, each year we collaborate with monthly and extraordinary economic contributions, destined to various NGOs and European institutions that work to help those most in need. Here are some of the non-profit organizations we help year after year:
Help for Refugees around the world
We are aware that being away from home is very hard, but it is even more so when it comes to having to flee your home in search of a better future.
For this reason, we contribute monthly financial resources to UNHCR, an NGO that watches over the rights and well-being of refugees from all over the world. The donations we make allow us to feed 3 children in situations of poverty and instability for a month.
Support for the Emergency in Ukraine
Given the terrible situation that the Ukrainian people are experiencing, we wanted to offer our help making an extra donation for the war refugees. With the amount contributed, UNHCR has been able to provide emergency shelter to a total of 4 Ukrainian families per month.
Likewise, our team mobilized to participate actively, with the aim of providing maximum resources to those affected by this conflict. Thanks to the solidarity of the colleagues and workers of AB Apartment Barcelona, it was possible to make a large donation of food, clothing and basic necessities for the Church of Nostra Senyora del Perpetu Auxili, in Carrer de Balmes nº100.
Aid for victims of the drought in the Horn of Africa
One of the most devastating consequences of the climate crisis is the drought in the Horn of Africa region. They have been in drought for more than 40 years and four consecutive years without a rainy season, thus destroying crop fields and livestock.
Along with our monthly economic contribution, in recent months we have strengthened our collaboration, making an extra donation to help the millions of people affected by this catastrophic drought and thus combat the poverty and famine it causes.
SAVE THE CHILDREN
Save the Children's mission is to protect and help children who are in vulnerable situations. What better way to work towards a better future for all than by protecting those who will be a part of it?
At AB Apartment Barcelona, we actively collaborate with Save the Children, providing monthly financial resources to be able to care for infants who need it most. Did you know that in Spain alone there are 7,000 minors in a situation of poverty and social exclusion? Thanks to the donations made each month, vaccinations can be administered, and 50 hygiene kits purchased.
CASAL DELS INFANTS
Barcelona is our home, which is why we are especially excited to collaborate every year with Casal dels Infants, an organization that helps hundreds of minors in the metropolitan area who need guidance, reception and counselling in order to enjoy a good childhood and access a better future.
Currently, 34.4% of minors in Barcelona live at risk of poverty, so our priority is to ensure that part of our resources are invested in improving the quality of life of our population.
For eight years, we have been collaborating with APARTUR in the Check In Solidarity project, an initiative founded by the Casal de Infants, which works closely with single mothers and children under 3 years of age, helping them to overcome a disadvantaged start in life. For each reservation made, we donate 1 euro to this association to help families and children with socioeconomic disadvantages. In 2020, prior to the pandemic situation, all the companies participating in the project managed to raise up to €21,400.
PASCUAL MARAGALL FOUNDATION
Today, some 800,000 suffer from Alzheimer's disease in Spain. Growing old and not being able to relive the multitude of memories and experiences that have accompanied you for so many years is something that no one prepares us for, and for which there is still no cure.
This is why we collaborate annually with the Pascual Maragall Foundation, in the fight against Alzheimer's. We want to provide support and continuity to the development of scientific projects to investigate the detection and prevention of this disease, and thus be able to improve the well-being of affected people and their families. Together, we join forces for a future without Alzheimer's!
LA MARATÓ TV3
La Marató TV3 is a solidarity project promoted by Televisió de Catalunya focused on obtaining financial resources for scientific research and prevention of incurable diseases. This solidarity action goes much further: La Marató de TV3 dedicates a program of more than 15 hours in a row to raise awareness among the population through scientific dissemination and entertainment.
Held annually in December, it manages to raise an average of 11 million euros and great citizen participation. Every year, from AB Apartment Barcelona we donate 1000 euros to the cause.
Undoubtedly, at AB Apartment Barcelona we are very aware of being able to provide the necessary resources to organizations that work to improve people's lives. It is in these difficult times that we should join forces to ensure that we all have access to the same opportunities. Are you up for the change?
