Fundacion Mapfre awards a Mexican company that helps children with cancer

The "Red Nose School for Children with Cancer" project carried out by the Mexican Association Campeones de la vida NR AC (Nariz Roja) has won the First Call for International Projects from Formando Comunidad, which has been promoted by Fundacion MAPFRE with the aim of supporting the development of international cooperation projects in Latin America, United States, Philippines, Turkey, Malta and Portugal.   In Malta, MAPFRE is represented by MAPFRE Middlesea.
This initiative will allow the Mexican NGO, established in 2010 by the psychologist Alejandro Barbosa, to promote the physical, intellectual and social development of a total of 60 children suffering from cancer in the State of Jalisco through school programs tailored to the health circumstances of each one of them.
In addition to the Red Nose School for Children with Cancer Project, in this call there have been another 507 programs from more than 1,600 companies from 23 countries.
Since the call for projects was launched in October 2015, half a million people have visited the Formando comunidad website, which is currently formed by 107 cooperation programs in 23 countries, from which 105,000 children and young people benefit in situations of poverty and social exclusion.
Fundacion MAPFRE will convene the Second Call for Projects from "Formando Comunidad" this September. More information can be found on http://convocatoriadeproyectos.fundacionmapfre.org/
