Apartment Barcelona Raises Over 2500€ for Charities This Year


The company has been working with various programs throughout the year, helping families at risk of social exclusion, and providing aid for refugees.

Barcelona, Spain, December 20, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Apartment Barcelona, one of the leading holiday rental companies in Barcelona, has this year been working with companies such as Apartur (the association of holiday apartment management companies in Barcelona) and leading charity UNHCR, to raise money for causes such as child poverty in Barcelona and emergency care for refugees across the world.

Over the course of the year, the agency participated in such projects as ‘Check In Solidario’, set up by Apartur, alongside the Casal dels Infants to provide support to mothers and infants from 0 to 3 years old who are at risk of social exclusion in the Barcelona neighbourhoods of El Raval, Badalona, Salt and Santa Coloma de Gramenet.

Apartment Barcelona donated one Euro for every reservation made between June and September 2015, in the third edition of the Check In Solidario program. The project raised a total of 16,170€ between all participating companies this year.

Through various educational, training and employment programs, as well as providing a space for general support, the Casal dels Infants works to ensure that every family has access to equal opportunities, regardless of their background.

“This is an excellent initiative and we are honoured to have been able to take part for a third year,” says David Aguilar, Director of Apartment Barcelona. “We are incredibly grateful to our clients who contribute through their reservations, and also to the volunteers and employees at the Casal dels Infants for their vital work.”

A helping hand to the refugee crisis
Apartment Barcelona has also been working with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, donating 100 Euro a month to the Spanish branch of the charity, ACNUR, as well as providing sporadic donations for causes such as the earthquake appeal in Nepal.

The monthly donations provided by the company went primarily towards the UNHCR’s emergency response program, in order to provide aid to both internally and externally displaced civilians when a sudden eruption of fighting in a particular area breaks out. These areas of conflict include Syria, as Iraq, Ukraine and South Sudan.

The apartment agency also contributed to the UNHCR’s Nepal earthquake appeal. The earthquake struck on April 25 this year. Between the initial quake and its subsequent aftershocks over 9,000 people were killed and more than 2.8 million others affected, with many left injured and homeless.

Donations given went towards emergency care to civilians, specifically plastic sheets and solar lamps.

“The work of both the Casal dels Infants and ACNUR is extremely important and we are glad to help both causes in any way we can,” explains Sandra Roig, Marketing Manager of Apartment Barcelona.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has been coordinating aid for the forcibly displaced for over 60 years and around 97% of the agency’s workers are volunteers. Today, a staff of around 8,600 people in more than 125 countries continues to help over 33.9 million persons.
