Madrid, 02 June 2020
COVID-19 has not only had disastrous consequences for health, but it has also lead to a large crisis on both an economic and social level: loss of income, job losses, closing of companies and businesses, fall in consumption, etc.
The situation of the most vulnerable people is highly extreme in the face of this COVID-19 crisis. This is why GESTAIR has joined the Food Bank to work together in collecting food and funds to distribute among families who need it most. From 1 to 15 June a channel has been opened which offers the chance to help the most disadvantaged people by voluntarily donating money which will turn into bags of food.
Many families at the present time find it difficult to have one meal a day. Requests for help to eat have rocketed by more than 30%, which is why more than 1,000,000 kilos of basic food are required to meet this need, in the Community of Madrid alone. In Barcelona the volume of intervention of the Food Bank has quadrupled and it keeps increasing every week.
In the face of this situation, GESTAIR invites not only its employees, but also any family members, friends and acquaintances who are interested to take part.
To make a donation, directly through the Food Bank via the link https://bam.civi-go.net/op-kilo/gestair, please include the amount that you wish to donate and make the payment.
Working together is fundamental.
