This team organizes donation drives for refugee families living in the community or for those staying in Refugee Centers. Appeals are made on social media and drop off times and locations are advertised. Volunteers collect and sort the donations and volunteer drivers take the donations (clothing, shoes, kitchen and household items, bedding etc.) to the refugees’ homes directly, or to the refugee centers.
Events and Cooking Solidario:
This team is in charge of organizing and carrying out the events run by MFR. Several goals of these events are to raise money for Madrid For Refugees’ programs, educate the people of Madrid on the current refugee situation, and encourage cultural and receptive integration among refugees and other local citizens.
This team also collaborates with local NGOs and Civil Society groups in a grassroots effort of solidarity to share resources and information. This boosts efficiency between groups, decreasing the overlap and creating niches where Madrid For Refugees can make a difference both locally and abroad.
This team aims to empower refugees by assisting them with job placement and integration with the community of Madrid. We work in conjunction with the refugee centers in collecting and distributing CVs to interested employers. The team also organizes events and activities that play to refugees’ individual strengths to generate sustainable income-earning opportunities for their benefit. Apart from this, the team helps refugees build closer ties with the local community by providing them with information and personal guidance, when needed, about the city of Madrid and its basic services.
This team handles media inquiries, manages MFR’s social media accounts and creates and curates original content for the MFR website and blog.
