Solidarity hands: Spreading hope among those who need it most

Opportunity: Commissary management

“A sack of potatoes, a cauliflower, six yoghurts, a bottle of oil, a kilo of flour” were the products that María, user of the Fundación Altius self-service in Madrid, had on her list on the morning when a group of volunteers from the Palladium Hotel Group headquarters in this city went along to lend a hand.

During the morning, they served fresh food, non-perishables, cleaning and personal hygiene products to 107 socially vulnerable people and their families.

The volunteer activity consisted of helping to manage the warehouse in Madrid:

  • Receiving goods and unloading donations.
  • Stocking the warehouse and organising the products.
  • Serving users in the fruit and vegetable area.
  • Restocking the self-service area.
  • Providing users with information.

Thank you, Fundación Altius, for showing us what is really going on around us and stopping us from looking the other way. We helped a lot of families in Madrid by providing the basics they need to lead a decent life.

Fundación Altius

  • Fundación Altius was set up in 2002 as a social project by the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria to transform the lives of marginalised people, particularly those who are unemployed.
  • Their mission is to transform the lives of excluded people, particularly those between jobs, by giving them all-round support to improve their social conditions and training to ease their integration into the job market.
  • “We aim to give our beneficiaries comprehensive support to improve their chances of finding a job.”

Help with the challenging task of finding a job

Opportunity: Training courses

Several collaborators from the Palladium Hotel Group headquarters in Madrid spent three hours with 15 migrants from different countries, helping them with the challenging task of finding a job.

They gave recommendations based on their own experiences and the volunteers and beneficiaries did some role playing, putting themselves in the place of the interviewers.

It was an opportunity for the volunteers to realise how fortunate we are. Finding a job is difficult for everyone, but it is even worse for foreigners who are not only in a difficult personal situation, but who also have to deal with a difficult culture and language.

It was an opportunity for Altius users to learn about the recruitment process and get useful tips about what to do and not and say at an interview.

We are grateful to Fundación Altius for giving us some insight into the situations of the people around us and for doing something to help integrate migrant people.

Learning to appreciate the simple things

Opportunity: An afternoon at the bowling alley

Eighty-five intrepid bowlers from Fundación Balia split into two groups and visited bowling alleys in the Tetuán and Latina neighbourhoods of Madrid. They were accompanied by their educators and volunteers from the Palladium Hotel Group headquarters in Madrid.

Three hours of fun in a leisurely atmosphere with time for a snack in the park and to show off their bowling skills, with plenty of chatter, laughter and good vibes.

Thank you, Fundación Balia, for giving us the opportunity to:

  • Learn that little things can have a positive impact on other people.

Facing reality and escaping from the routine

Opportunity: Cultural visit and performance

The education team at Fundación Balia and 21 children and their families met at the school and travelled by bus to the Museo Reina Sofia. Once there, they had breakfast with volunteers from the Palladium Hotel Group headquarters in Madrid and played an 'ice-breaking' game to get better acquainted.

They then set off for the Teatro Karpas to see a play called “Melocotón en Almibar” (Peach in Syrup), which was followed by a chat with the actors to ask questions and make comments about the play.

After a stroll through Madrid to the El Retiro park, they tucked into a picnic lunch and then played steal the handkerchief.

Thank you, Fundación Balia, for giving us the opportunity to see this play with the children and their families, for the walk through the city and for organising the games with the educators from the Foundation.

How to make them feel appreciated and integrated

Opportunity: Manual workshops

Fifteen volunteers from Palladium Hotel Group's Madrid headquarters created notebooks (front and back covers, decoration and binding) at a notebook workshop taught by workers with intellectual disabilities from Fundación PRODIS.

The volunteers were also able to:

  • Discover the work done by PRODIS with these people and their families.
  • Learn about their opportunities to train and work and the challenges of tackling the “senior” stage.
  • Listen to and learn from their 'teachers', and get to know what they are like and how they express themselves first hand.
  • Find out how these activities are a chance for people with disabilities meet different people in a controlled environment, with sufficient support on both sides to make this a positive experience.

This activity makes young people from PRODIS feel appreciated and allows them to participate as equal, useful, productive members of society. Thank you, Fundación PRODIS, for making it happen!

100 people with disabilities share a fun day on the beach

Opportunity: Beach activities and meal

It was an enjoyable winter Saturday on the beach, where 30 families from APFEM enjoyed activities organised by the Association. Fourteen volunteers from the headquarters of Palladium Hotel Group in Ibiza also participated.

A total of 39 boys and girls of different ages played with sensory objects - visual, tactile and auditory - and did crafts and motor activities, as well as enjoying a delicious paella. Meanwhile, their parents switched off from the routine and chatted.

The children were able to work with the intervention programme at the APFEM centre (surroundings, personal independence and social relationships).

The families took the opportunity to share experiences in a leisurely environment and get to know other people.

And the volunteers were lucky enough to mix with boys and girls with different abilities and lend a hand so that they and their families could have a pleasant, different day together. Thank you, APFEM, for making it happen!

Jockeys of hope: A special day in Ibiza

Opportunity: Horseback riding

Thirteen children aged between three to six from the primary stage of the Betania social-education centre, a team of educators and several volunteers from the Palladium Hotel Group in Ibiza started the day playing football with a bottle of water, tag or just chatting to get better acquainted.

But the best was yet to come, brushing the horses’ manes, braiding them, riding them, doing different exercises on horseback and taking them for a little stroll. Dismounting, grooming and feeding the horses was a lot of fun, and they all participated enthusiastically in these tasks.

The following Saturday, 15 secondary school students took part in the same activity, but this time as a gymkhana, which consisted of:

  • Zig-zagging among some cubes with the horse and going around another cube.
  • Jumping over two sticks.
  • Returning by the same route, going around the cube with their hands on their heads.

This teamwork brought all the participants, volunteers and horses together.

Thank you, Centro Betania! We loved taking part in an activity that took the children away from their screens and routines to a place where they could learn about animals and nature.

A group of Cáritas users and volunteers from the Palladium Hotel Group headquarters went plogging and picked up rubbish and litter in the Natural Park of Ses Salines in Ibiza.

Three hours of:

Contributing to social integration with their own experience

Opportunity: Empowerment School

Don't you find it easier to talk about things you have been through yourself than things you have only heard about from other people?

This was the case for 13 collaborators from some of the Palladium Hotel Group hotels and headquarters in Ibiza who volunteered at the Fundación Integra Empowerment School.

They shared small tips based on their own experiences as homeless people, recovering addicts, female victims of gender violence, young people at risk, people with dependent family members, immigrants and refugees, and people with disabilities who showed their preferences for working in the sector by participating in some of the following workshops:

  • Looking for a job is a job.
  • Creating the best CV
  • Preparing and practising for a job interview.
  • My first day, duties and obligations as an employee.

The main goal was to give them self-confidence to get through the recruitment process.

Many thanks, Fundación Integra, for allowing us to use our knowledge and professional experience to help other people.
