Last Thursday Caritas informed of the & #8220;Donation“ that the Fundación Amancio Ortega He had made on his behalf. No less than 20 million euros for the basic care programme carried out in Spain. The largest in the history of the NGO. At that time the news flew and appeared the usual criticisms. First of all, read my companion IC in El Blog Salmón that explains well how even is a donation, but a Convention.
If there is still any option to the criticism after the good words of IC, that same Thursday on Twitter you could read how some put to light the latest donations, or conventions of the Fundación Amancio Ortega, surprised at the same time of the excitement that was generated with this issue since the 20 million are not new. Only in this 2012 its Foundation is intended 46 million euros to three social projects, data collecting now Europa Press in an article.
These projects can be found on the website of the Fundación Amancio Ortega. Are: a new headquarters of the social charity Center father Rubiños in A Coruña, the children’s schools project and project man Galicia.
In the new facilities of the beneficial social institution father Rubiños go 25 million from budget how it can be read in his memory. In such facilities, they will host up to 480 people, including hostel, residence of elderly and infant school.
As for the nursery schools of Galicia the Fundación Amancio Ortega seeks to promote more than 750 public squares of new creation for which intended EUR 11 million. “ Will finance the construction of 9 schools of the public network of nursery schools of Galicia for children aged 0 to 3, in different Galician localities ”; “ a 5% increase in the number of public places existing in Galicia for the segment from 0 to 3 years old ”, as reported in your website to day 26 March 2012.
On the occasion of the new facilities of the central headquarters of the Proxecto Home Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, funding that supports the Foundation with 7 million euros, they will sit more than 180 people per day, as they report in their memory.
In addition, the Fundación Amancio Ortega promotes other three projects related to the education as well as a training project in Tanzania along with agronomists without borders with the aim of “ facilitate new agricultural techniques to consolidate the sustainability of families ”, say in his memory.
The Fundación Amancio Ortega has been active since 2001, 11 years in which such actions have been consistent despite the apparent surprise that many have lived these days. The third of the world’s richest man devotes part of his fortune (estimated at about 38,000 million euros a day, August 7, 2012, according to Bloomberg) to charitable projects. More philanthropy that extended between this type of fortunes as you can see in any that is in this privileged list. That to 2012 this is still a surprise that is a problem. The motives and plots better leave them to another. Aid for the moment are left on the table.
