Standing in solidarity
In support of our community, and in collaboration with the Government of Guía de Isora, we have initiated a series of charitable actions with the aim of supporting local populations in need. This is a permanent avenue of community-building and we launch new projects continuously. Join us!
Ongoing crowdfunding campaign
Our ongoing crowdfunding campaign is the channel through which Abama Solidaria collects funds for upcoming actions.
Currently, we are asking our donors to sponsor a child in Guía de Isora with a minimum €35 donation. Each child sponsored will receive Christmas gifts from this collaboration with the Spanish Red Cross.
Our donation account remains open so that anyone, whether a resident of our sustainable homes or not, may contribute, at any time of the year, to the current Abama Solidaria campaign. Contributions are controlled by a notary public and anyone who donates will receive official documentation of his or her contribution as well as information about how the funds were used.
If you would like to participate, you can do so by making a contribution to the bank account below. The account is controlled by a Notary Public. To receive official documentation of your donation, as well as information about how the funds were used, please send an email to Raquel Sarmiento below indicating the date of your donation and the name of the account holder. The notary’s information is below, and if you require any further clarification, please feel free to call or email us.

Ámate Tenerife campaign
Throughout the summer and early fall of 2021, Abama Solidaria held a drive to benefit Ámate Tenerife, a wonderful organization that provides psychological, administrative, health, and aesthetic services to people with breast cancer.

La Palma campaign
The eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on our sister island of La Palma has left many buildings destroyed and many people displaced. Abama Solidaria has donated €2,000 to relief efforts on the island, and collected additional funds from contributions to the Abama Solidaria account.
In November we began our Christmas campaign, with 50% of the collected funds going towards the purchase of basic food items for children, and the other 50% to the purchase of children’s toys for a variety of age ranges. Abama Solidaria was able to donate a total of 50 toys and games to 25 families.
Also, just in time for a special Christmas gift, Abama Solidaria worked with an artist with Canary Island roots to develop a limited-edition necklace collection inspired by the Abama Beach. In addition to being a beautiful little Abama souvenir, 50% of sales proceeds went to the Abama Solidaria account for our Christmas campaign and future actions. You can still see and order the necklaces here, and watch the video below!
Donation of tablets
In September we donated 25 tablets to the Government of Guía de Isora for their distribution by the Education Department for their lending program. The tablets are loaned to families with children that are vulnerable or do not have access to the digital tools they require for their schooling.
We’re proud to report that our crowdfunding campaign also collected almost €7,000 in additional funds for tablets from the generous contributions, and we were able to purchase and donate an additional 57 tablets to the local government.
The photo below is from the delivery ceremony with the mayor, Josefa Mesa, and the Social Wellness Minister, Cathaysa Vargas, who stated that the contribution is a very welcome support to the government’s efforts to ensure that all children have equal access to the technology they need.
Donation of basic necessities
In May 2020 we donated 2,700 kilos of food, 6,500 diapers and a variety of hygiene products to those most affected by the coronavirus crisis.
We’re excited to be planning more upcoming actions, and more details will be posted as they become available.
