Transparency is a priority for all of the volunteer activities run by Fundación MAPFRE. The receipts are managed directly by each of the collaborating organizations in the running of their shelters, soup kitchens, food and clothes banks and centers for social integration where they offer support to the elderly, the unemployed, sick people and families at risk or marginalized. This is the way we ensure that 100% of your money gets to those most in need.
