Collaboration with UNICEF

Unicef. For children's right


We are collaborating with UNICEF in their goal of achieving real change in the lives of children in developing countries, through programmes aimed at improving their health and education, and also protecting them from violence, exploitation and abuse.

Since 2010, we at IBERDROLA have joined different campaigns to raise funds for alleviating the consequences of natural disasters and specific serious issues. Some of these are:

  • Campaign following the Nepal earthquake in 2015, to help children in serious risk situations, providing drinking water, essential medicines, medical and surgical supplies, and tents for the hospitals. 351 donations were received from April to September 2015 and €26,215 were raised, exceeding the initial goal of €25,000.
  • We Can't Stop Now! Campaign against child mortality due to preventable causes. Sufficient funds were raised to vaccinate at least 22,000 children against measles, provide drinking water to more than 8,000 infants for one month and treat 240 minors against acute malnutrition.
  • Urgent help after the typhoon Yolanda passed by the Philippines and left 4 million children in a serious risk situation. More than 30,000 euros were obtained for aid for the Philippines. Our contribution helped UNICEF to provide access to potable water and drainage for 438,400 people and to vaccinate 35,000 children under 5 years of age.  Furthermore, 54 temporary schools were able to be created that were attended by 10,000 children.
  • "Cumpledías" campaign to fight chronic malnutrition in children. We set ourselves the challenge of paying for 20,000 days of treatment against severe malnutrition.
  • Donate 1 Day campaign against child malnutrition. We assumed the challenge of paying for treatment for 500 children in the fight against serious severe malnutrition.
  • Campaign to provide support of people affected by the Haiti earthquake in 2010. Thanks to the contribution from IBERDROLA and other companies, the organisation collected more than 13 million euros to cover the needs of minors.
