For a year the workers of Andamur and the company itself have collaborated with the solidarity initiative “Breakfast with a smile” which began on November 20 last year, Universal Children’s Day. Since that day Andamur provides daily to its team of service areas and business centre, coffee and fresh fruit for breakfast. The employees were therefore encouraged to make voluntary financial contributions to a charitable cause. The company committed to double the amount collected by the workers during the year, so today we are handing over 1,500 euros to the ALCA Alternative to the Street Social-Educational Project.
The event was attended by Juan Carlos López Sánchez, President of Andamur and Cristina Miñarro representing the workers, who handed over the donation to Sister Miguela García Jiménez (Daughters of Charity) and Salvador Martínez Saura, Head of Social Action for the Caritas Diocese of Cartagena.
The ALCA Project (Alternative to the Street) works to help children at risk of social exclusion and currently serves 100 children between the ages of 3 and 17 in the city of Lorca. All of them are provided with educational help through reinforcement classes, also in clothing and food for those families who need it and they carry out recreational activities with them. A project that belongs to the company of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul and Saint Louise de Marillac, an international congregation, recognized with the Prince of Asturias Award, which works to provide aid and support to the most disadvantaged sectors in different projects around the world.
The Andamur work centre that has raised the most money in this action has been the Andamur San Román Service Area (Álava), which has been responsible for choosing the NGO to which the money raised in “Breakfast with a Smile 2021” will be allocated, as this solidarity initiative will continue throughout next year. This time it will be ASPANAFOA, the Association of Parents of Children with Cancer in Álava, whose main objective is to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families.
This solidarity action is framed within our CSR Plan we take care of what matters, in the axis Leadership and Future , which frames the social commitment. With this plan we aim to give back to society a part of what it gives us as a company.
