The Familia Torres Foundation presents its Annual Report 2018, in which it details the actions carried out through its five areas of action: children’s aid; women and families; groups in needs and at risk of social exclusion; the promotion of culture and humanitarian aid in natural disasters.

The publication of the Annual Report of the Familia Torres Foundation coincides with the launch of the new website, which aims to give visibility to the projects in which the entity collaborates and provide information on the Foundation (mission, trustees, economic memory, annual report, etc.). With a fresh and attractive design and simple navigation, the web is divided into six sections: About us, Projects, News, Present your project, Transparency and Volunteering.

Created in 1986, the Foundation has collaborated in more than 400 projects at local, national and international level, with actions in 12 different countries such as Cameroon, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Philippines and Mexico, for example. All of the Foundation’s income is private and complies with the contributions made by the different companies integrated in Familia Torres and the members of the family, individually.

On April 25, the poet from Vilafranca del Penedès Santi Borrell presented his new book, a study on the vineyard and wine of the Penedès of the last 170 years.

With this work, Santi gives us an historical account of almost 170 years, detailed and careful, which helps us to remember where we come from and to value our history and our legacy.

The presentation was held at the Consell Comarcal de l’Alt Penedès, whose table was chaired by the representatives of the institutions that have collaborated with the book such as the DO Penedès, Enoturisme Penedès, Ajuntament de Vilafranca and the Familia Torres Foundation.

Mireia Torres, as president of Familia Torres Foundation, made participants participate in the priorities of the Foundation: helping children, contributing to improving the health of vulnerable groups, promoting the empowerment of women, supporting culture and helping to areas affected by natural disasters.

The Familia Torres Foundation has collaborated with the publication of Santi Borrell’s work on our beloved Penedès.
