"OVERCOMING POVERTY IS NOT A GESTURE OF CHARITY. IT IS AN ACT OF JUSTICE."
We are a non-profit organisation formed by a multidisciplinary group of professionals and volunteers who support families in vulnerable situations in the Community of Madrid.
Since 2019, the need for social assistance has increased by 45%.
Requests for food, housing and medicine have tripled because of the social crisis that the pandemic has caused.
Half a million people in Madrid suffer from severe poverty, living on less than 355 euros per month.
