In 2015 over 2,000 volunteers took part in one of the 292 acts of solidarity aimed at helping those most in need and vulnerable in society. One of the main challenges for the company over the next few years is to become a global example of charitable collaboration.
Until the end of August 2015, there were 45,291 instances of participation in 292 charity activities carried out by Fundación MAPFRE. These activities involved MAPFRE Volunteers from America, Asia and Europe and helped 423,997 people in 20 countries, especially people at risk of social exclusion.
Volunteers dedicated more than 8,837 hours to activities related mainly to nutrition, health, education and assistance in emergencies, thus strengthening the volunteers’ commitment to the communities in which they work.
The most relevant projects implemented this year by our volunteers include: community nutrition, donation campaigns, psycho-social support for people in difficult situations, financial literary, charity races, help with school work, building of homes, training for employment, fire prevention, road safety, prevention of harassment in social media, among others. Additionally, theoretical/practical workshops have been taking place with a view to raising awareness of charity/solidarity among four- to sixteen-year-olds.
We should also mention participation in the “Fundación MAPFRE Support Month”, in November. All social activities by the volunteers focused on raising awareness of the need to prevent traffic accidents.
Fundación MAPFRE VOLUNTEERS program is carried out by volunteers from the MAPFRE corporate volunteering program.
