“We wanted to help improve the quality of life of people with Down syndrome through Down Spain,” Suarez said.
House thanked the firm for developing actions that demonstrate that a business can and should have slope solidarity. In the future, the president of Down Spain hopes companies continue to find ways to work with social causes.
“With this donation from Chopard, we can continue to develop programs focused on people with Down syndrome and acquire as much autonomy as possible, a necessary step to be citizens like everyone else,” House said.
Down syndrome is a crisis that is seriously affecting social entities that have been diminished, in some cases dramatically, he said. More than ever, companies need to take the time to support social causes.
For more than 20 years, Down Spain had worked to ensure the autonomy of the collective life. Through its programs and publications for Early Care, Health Education, Employment and Independent Living, they have been able to provide support for those with Down syndrome in all areas of their life cycle, achieving full integration into society.
As a result of their work, Down Spain has received among other awards the Golden Cross of the Civil Order of Social Solidarity Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality Award for Best Support Organization for People of the Technology and Health Foundation as wella s the Prize CERMI for Best Career Associations.
“The Swiss firm Chopard jewels and watches have worked for years in various solidarity associations and international aid projects,” Morgeli said. “For the family Scheufele, it is a duty to serve the just and noble causes. Thanks to its great success, Chopard puts its talent and prestige to help the most vulnerable.”
For several years, Chopard has participated in multiple activities in various areas of sponsorship including medicine, ecology, art, culture and social affairs.
“We have sponsored the Jose Carreras Foundation against leukemia, the Prince’s Foundation, the Elton John AIDS and this time, it is an honor for us to help Down Spain in their projects of integration and autonomy,” Morgeli said. “When fortune in life smiles at you, it is just best to use it to help people for whom life is a test.”
