They are projects developed by the Fundació Privada Ared, Horitzontes Abiertos, BarcelonActua, Actua SCCL and Salut Sense Sostre
The Familia Torres Foundation, created in 1986 by the centenary Penedès family winery, announces the social projects in which it collaborates this 2022. There are five proposals from different national NGOs focused on the protection of children, the empowerment of women and the help to vulnerable groups, which the Foundation’s board of trustees has selected from among the 90 projects presented by 81 entities from all over the territory in this year’s call for aid.
Three of the projects in which the entity participates are aimed at helping women at risk of social exclusion. One of them is the social and labor integration program for women on probation promoted by the Fundació Privada Ared in Barcelona, with the aim of providing support for the social and labor integration of 12 women from prisons.
The other two are the Hasen project of the Madrid Fundación Horizontes Abiertos, which provides residential shelter and support to vulnerable women and minors, as well as psychological support to reintegrate into society, and the BarcelonActua Foundation’s Famílies del Món program. This is aimed at single-parent families in a vulnerable situation to facilitate their linguistic integration, professional training and job placement, as well as offering support in the education of young children.
In the field of childhood, the Familia Torres Foundation participates in the Espai Familiar project of Actua SCCL, a non-profit social initiative cooperative, to give psychological care to minors and relatives of three Residential Educational Action Centers (CRAE) in Penedès. To help vulnerable groups, the entity collaborates this year with the Street Hospital of the Salut Sense Sostre organization, made up of volunteer doctors, nurses and psychologists that operates throughout Catalonia. Through this project, people living on the streets receive medical assistance in a mobile field hospital.
Beyond these five projects chosen by the board of trustees for this year, the Familia Torres Foundation has also joined the humanitarian aid to Ukraine through the purchase and shipment of food and essential products to serve the population that is forced to flee the war in his country. The intention of the Foundation is to continue providing aid through different organizations while the conflict lasts.
