- The Red Cross and Food Banks in Barcelona, Seville and Zaragoza are the main beneficiaries.
- The Endesa Foundation's contribution of half a million euros has been earmarked for partner charities including Cáritas, the Fundación SAFA, Fundación Integra and Fundación Altius.
- These donations are part of the company's Public Responsibility Plan, endowed with 25 million euros and their aim to alleviate the health and social effects of the Covid 19 crisis.
Since the start of the pandemic, Endesa and the Endesa Foundation have carried out various initiatives aimed at fighting the effects of the crisis on groups in vulnerable situations. The objective of these actions, which are contained within the Public Responsibility Plan launched by Endesa in response to COVID-19, is to cover the most basic and especially serious needs of these people whose circumstances have worsened during the crisis.
The total amount of donations amounts to almost two million euros, of which 500,000 euros have been allocated to the Red Cross, and 800,000 euros have been distributed among the Food Banks in Barcelona, Seville and Zaragoza. The remaining amount, a total of 600,000 euros, has been donated to charitable organisations and members of the Foundation who work with vulnerable groups all year round, including Cáritas, Fundación SAFA, Fundación Integra, Fundación Altius, Asociación Norte Joven, Asociación Padre Pulgar, Fundación Secretariado Gitano and Fundación Tomillo, which have now been joined by Save The Children.
In addition to these contributions are those made by Endesa's employees, intended for both the Red Cross and the Food Banks in Barcelona, Seville and Zaragoza, with a total value of over 200,000 euros.
It is estimated about 182,000 people from all over Spain will benefit from this financial aid. The donations are intended to cover the basic needs of groups in dire need, which have been especially affected by the COVID-19 crisis, such as purchasing food, medicine and hygiene products.
