Today, 8 May, is World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, commemorating the birth of founder Jean Henri Dunant. Here at Jomipsa we want to mark this day by being thankful for the huge contribution made by both organisations to society and by celebrating the more than 20 years we’ve been working alongside them.
One of the main things when facing an emergency crisis is to ensure that everybody has access to basic hygiene, mainly to reduce the propagation of illnesses or epidemics throughout populations, countries or continents.
Jomipsa was once again present at Aidex 2019, the largest international humanitarian aid fair held in Europe on November 13 and 14 in Brussels (Belgium). This year, it was the meeting point for more than 2,500 humanitarian aid professionals from 60 different countries.
Last August, a delegation of personnel of the provincial delegation of the Red Cross Alicante visited the facilities of Jomipsa with a group of immigrants arriving from the coasts of Africa.
As part of the project program, it helps to integrate the Spanish Red Cross refugee funded by the Ministry of the Interior, the workers and volunteers of the Spanish NGO try to accompany immigrant groups in the difficult task of integration into the new environment. Likewise, they try, through training programs for newly arrived people, to learn the culture, the way of interacting, the language, the manners and to develop themselves in a world totally unknown to them.
