• Hand in hand with Save the Children Spain, since January we have been collaborating in the ‘By your side’ program offering cash transfers to families with children at risk of social exclusion

At RIU we have once again joined Save the Children to fight child poverty in Spain. Since January, we have collaborated with this NGO in its ‘By your side’ program, offering cash transfers to families with children at risk of social exclusion, to support them in the acquisition of food and the acquisition of basic necessities. This project is part of the RIU Hotels Corporate Social Responsibility methodology for this 2021, aimed mainly at social emergencies caused by the pandemic.

At this time, when families find themselves with less income due to the total or partial loss of employment and with more additional expenses such as the need for sanitary equipment for individual protection, RIU together with Save the Children has sponsored cash transfers of 100 euros per child per month. The company would like to support the most disadvantaged by the pandemic in Spain, and, in addition, with a trusted ally such as Save the Children, with whom we have worked since October 2019 in its program ‘Early Childhood Attention ‘Aimed at vulnerable families with children between 0 to 6 years old.
