Barcelona Women’s Network is dedicated to finding easier ways to contribute to our elected charities. We offer opportunities for our members to volunteer their time but many would rather donate financially. Friends of BWN and community members are encouraged to donate to support our organization and these wonderful charities.
BWN sponsors the following charities from 2018 to 2020:
Assistencia Dones Agredides Sexualmente (A.A.D.A.S.) & Avismón- Catalunya
A.A.D.A.S (Associacio Assistencia Dones Agredides Sexualment) provides free specialised and total assistance for women, children and adolescents who have suffered sexual violence. Registered since 1991, the organisation has been very active in changing the treatment victims of sexual violence receive from the authorities, working with the police and hospitals to raise awareness and put suitable protocols in place.
Avismón’s mission is to help very elderly people who live alone on a very low income (with minimum pension) with weekly visits from volunteers to help with housework and bureaucracy, workshops and social events, and food parcels where necessary. The social aspect is a vital part of it as many do not have any surviving family members. Currently 421 people are being helped by this organisation (333 women), with the majority being over the age of 85, and a few over 100 years old. Most of the beneficiaries are Spanish, some South American, and one English lady.
Your contribution is a much-needed support that these two organizations will use to reach their individual goals. You’ll also be supporting Barcelona Women’s Network’s purpose to give back to the community through fundraising for a variety of local charities which focus on women’s and children’s interests.
