The community of Poblenou Urban District takes part in various solidarity initiatives

The community of Barcelona’s Creative District participates in various solidarity initiatives for the Christmas Season

If the month of December represents for many of us a special time where you get to share moments with your family and friends, it is also a good time to show solidarity towards people in a situation of vulnerability. The community of Poblenou Urban District is taking part, this year, in various initiatives in order to help and support diverse causes. Below we will present you those initiatives and how you can be part of them.  


Fundació Ared for #GivingTuesday2021 

Fundació Ared participates, once again this year, in the solidarity event Giving Tuesday, a global movement that encourages solidarity and multiplies good deeds. Their objective is to dedicate a whole day to celebrating the action of Giving and this year’s event was celebrated on the 30th of November 2021. 

For the occasion, Fundació Ared set itself the challenge to transform the life of women who know the reality of social exclusion. Indeed, in this last year, the necessities and number of people in poverty situations and social exclusion has increased due to the deep impact of Covid-19. In Fundació Ared, they saw the transformation and intensification of those social necessities closely, translated in an increased number of people that were cared for, and a reduction of their possibility of insertion. The pandemic has hit hard, and still does, in highly vulnerable collectives, especially women and people older than 60 years old, increasing the poverty threshold for these collectives. For that reason, and with the objective to not leave anyone behind, for this Giving Tuesday, Fundació Ared is looking to guarantee a decent work for two women in situations of high vulnerability, during the Christmas season

With the objective to raise 4.650€, one can support the cause until the 28th of December by making a donation on the website of the foundation Mi grano de arena. With your collaboration, they will create a new opportunity of life for two highly vulnerable women, facilitating their way towards their own autonomy and personal freedom. 

Fundació Ared works in order to achieve social and professional integration for people in situations of social exclusion, mostly women coming from prison facilities and social services. Their objective is to promote the access to full citizenship, through processes of training and integral accompaniment to help their incorporation to the labor market.
