  • The contribution of 5,000 euros, allocated to programmes that support and protect children’s rights, is part of the collaboration agreement that both entities recently signed as part of their CSR approach

With a contribution of 5,000 euros, Bankia and Fundación Cajamurcia are supporting the humanitarian work of the Spanish Committee for Unicef through the Comité Autonómico de Murcia (Unicef Committee of the Autonomous Region of Murcia) and their work in favour of children's rights, within the collaboration agreement signed by both entities as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach.

The agreements were renewed by the Chairman of Fundación Cajamurcia, Carlos Egea, and the Chairwoman of Unicef Comité Autonómico de Murcia, Amparo Marzal, in an act in which the Territorial Corporate Manager of Bankia in Murcia and Alicante, Olga García, also participated.

The agreement, signed at the Fundación Cajamurcia headquarters, reaffirms the commitment that has been maintained for almost 15 years with this charitable association, which has ongoing cooperation and emergency programmes in more than 150 developing countries and territories.

The Chairwoman of Unicef in Murcia, Amparo Marzal, thanked Bankia and Fundación Cajamurcia for their support, and stressed that "all aid is essential to allow us to continue with our work: raising awareness about the problems affecting children, mobilising resources to finance the programmes we carry out in developing countries, and to respond to the humanitarian emergencies that affect children and families. "

The Chairman of Fundación Cajamurcia, Carlos Egea, added that "for our entity, it is a pleasure to be able to collaborate with an organisation such as Unicef, whose projects cover such priority areas as child survival and development, basic education and gender equality, HIV / AIDS, protection against violence or abuse and mistreatment."

For her part, the Territorial Corporate Manager of Bankia in Murcia and Alicante, Olga García, pointed out that "in Bankia we are committed to carrying out actions that improve the quality of life of the people around us, especially if they are vulnerable, like children." "We also like to channel our help through associations such as Unicef that work for children, and whose goal is to ensure that children's rights to health, education and protection are fulfilled."

Bankia

Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five lines of social action which are: housing/new poverty, education, employment, local/rural development and disabled persons. The bank focuses its social investment in these high-priority lines as a contribution to alleviating some of the most urgent needs in the current socio-economic context. The social responsibility policy is characterised by linking the bank’s social and business activities, where employees identity social and economic problems. The two fundamental hallmarks of Bankia’s social action are the involvement of all the bank’s structures and staff to commit to the social projects it supports and the proximity that it seeks in each of the social projects.

Fundación Cajamurcia

Fundación Cajamurcia is deeply committed to the Murcia Region, where it plays an active role in initiatives aimed at fostering social and cultural development. Its two main objectives are to foster actions that are clearly beneficial to society, particularly those that assist vulnerable groups (elderly people and people with disabilities, children, low-income families, immigrants...) and which support initiatives that further social and economic development, primarily projects in the areas of art, culture, education and research, and recovery of historic and natural heritage.
