Do you know the meaning of solidarity? This was one of the first questions we asked ourselves when we dreamed up this project. Let us remind you: Solidarity is the adherence to or unconditional support for outside causes or interests, especially in compromised or difficult situations. This is our goal. If you've ever wondered how you can help, join us.
Will you come on board? You can become a charitable partner by making a regular donation of your choice. THANK YOU.
And what if you decide to stop being a partner, change your donation, increase it or reduce it? No problem. Simply contact Fundación MAPFRE and we will deal with your call in person.
Thank you for your commitment. Thanks to you and your willingness to help, we can improve the lives of thousands of people in need. We can, between all of us, ensure that they receive the care they need and the will to carry on.
