Standing in solidarity
In support of those most negatively affected by the coronavirus crisis, 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. We hope to make this a permanent new avenue of community-building for Abama with more projects in the future.
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.
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.
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.
We have also launched a crowdfunding campaign to collect additional funds that will go towards these and future actions of Abama Solidaria. Contributions will be controlled by a notary public and anyone who donates will receive official documentation of their contribution as well as information about how the funds were used.
More information about how you can donate to the campaign will be available shortly.
We’re excited to be planning more upcoming actions, and more details will be posted as they become available.
In December we will host a Christmas event at Abama to bring holiday cheer to children who have had a difficult year for a variety of reasons.
