At VAPF Group, we understand that we must actively contribute to improving the socio-economic system of the communities that we serve.
In response to the concern shown throughout the company and with the aim of demonstrating, organising and increasing our degree of commitment to society and to our employees and customers, VAPF has the objective of extending its activities in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility.
We know that 2020 has not been just another year…
In 2020 we learned to value what really matters. The health of our elderly, the hugs of our loved ones, the well-being of our children and the immense effort of all the world’s health workers.
The global health emergency generated by COVID-19 is compounded by the associated economic and social crisis. From the beginning of the pandemic, as a company, we knew we couldn’t stay on the sidelines.
That is why in March 2020, when it was almost impossible to carry out COVID tests, we bought 100 COVID tests to give to the elderly in Marina Alta residencies. In addition, we collaborated financially with the Denia Foundation to donate a robot that is at the forefront of analysing COVID 19 tests to the Marina Salud Hospital in Denia.
Thanks to our donation to Aldeas Infantiles SOS, 20 children were able to continue receiving help and protection during the toughest months of the confinement. This year our donation to UNICEF went to their project in Syria, which focuses on reducing the transmission and mortality of the new Coronavirus in the camps for displaced persons, shelters and host communities.
We collaborated with the Red Cross in their Urgent Attention programme for the most needy, to minimize the economic and social impact that COVID-19 is having on many families in our area.
Furthermore, and unfortunately, the emergencies that preceded the pandemic have not disappeared, which is why VAPF Group, as it does every year, has continued its collaboration …
With ASPANION, the Association of Parents of Children with Cancer in the Valencian Community, by financing a Project for the Psychosocial Care of Children and Adolescents with Cancer.
With PAYASOSPITAL, against all odds, spreading smiles among thousands of children in hospital.
Supporting the work of Save the Children, for quality education, adequate healthcare, and the protection of children from any form of violence.
With UNHCR to cover refugees’ basic needs, offering them shelter, food items, medical care, education and legal assistance.
By increasing our annual commitment to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), we help to provide fair and unbiased medical attention around the world.
As we do every year, we collaborated with Caritas, supporting people in situations of social exclusion and vulnerability in our community, regardless of their religious affiliation.
And again, with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation in the construction of a housing community for needy families in India, housing which will be registered under the name of the woman of the family.
In addition, and for the first time in 2020, we made donations to the LUDAI Association (Child Development and Early Care Centre of the Marina Alta) with the aim of fighting to ensure that children with different illnesses and developmental difficulties receive the attention they need and the ASEM CV, Association for Neuromuscular Diseases in the Valencian Community, to its personal autonomy project, which offers support to more than 400 people affected, improving their quality of life and also that of their families and caregivers.
Although we would like to, we unfortunately can’t change what this year has brought us, but we are sure that our solidarity, together with that of many other companies and individuals, will make a big difference in the lives of all those affected during this difficult year.
We are proud to collaborate so that ambitious goals will no longer be a dream.
