Supporting the work of Open Arms for refugees who cross the Mediterranean Sea
SUPPORT FOR THE ORIGEN PROGRAMME
Raising awareness amongst the public of the reality of refugee life
The Barça Foundation and the Open Arms Foundation have worked together since 2016. During this time, the Barça Foundation has given support to the entity’s work in raising awareness, which they have carried out in Catalonia.
One of the most recent agreements is support for the Origen programme in Senegal. The aim is to strengthen the abilities and knowledge in communities, in particular amongst young people, to contribute to their individual and community development.
With what we have spent bailing out banks, we could end world hunger
