Solidary contribution Sabadell Urquijo (2017)



 
On 2017, Sabadell Ethical-Solidarity Fund distributed 401,558 euros among 29 projects at national and international level. All the projects financed are initiatives aimed at the field of social and humanitarian action, of cooperation for development, which bring education closer to disadvantaged groups or seek medical / food aid.

In this edition, Fundación Recover has received 11,000€ for the project "Diabetes: a controllable ghost in Africa", because while diabetes in wealthy countries rarely puts in danger the life of the person affected, in low income countries more than the 80% of the patients die for complications derived from this disease. It is worth stressing that diabetes is the first cause of amputation in the world, what gives an indication of the importance of its early detection and treatment.
