April 22nd is the day chosen for the d'Oncologia Infantil Enriqueta Villavecchia Foundation solidarity dinner. This is an important social event in which Engel & Völkers Barcelona, the internationally prestigious real estate agency specialising in intermediation services for luxury properties, wanted to be present as a sponsor. The company contributes its participation in this great cause directed to the attention of children and young people suffering from cancer and other serious diseases.
This dinner will take place at the Royal Tennis Club Barcelona-1899, during which time the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell - 65th Conde de Godó Tennis Trophy will also be held. Representatives of Engel & Völkers Barcelona will attend this event, where they will sit at one of the tables and commemorate the Enriqueta Villavecchia Foundation.
The benefits obtained by this charity dinner, which will include a presentation of the functions and objectives of the Foundation and will also have a musical performance, will be allocated to the project "Compta amb mi" - the support team in Pediatric Palliative Care.
The Enriqueta Villavecchia Children's Oncology Foundation was founded in 1989 in the City of Barcelona as a non-profit and charitable organisation to cover not only the needs of children and young people who go through cancer treatment in Catalonia, But also to serve their families.
This Foundation's main focus is to achieve the goal of improving the quality of life of these patients during all phases of their illness, guaranteeing support to them and their families. Thus, the Foundation is responsible for providing financial and social assistance to families who have few resources and accommodation to all those who are displaced from their homes because of the treatments that their children need.
Likewise, the Foundation invests its efforts in promoting scientific advances in the assistance, research and training of physicians and healthcare personnel in the specific fields of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology.
With events such as the solidarity dinner and many others that are carried out, the Foundation seeks to achieve the important goal of raising full awareness in society about the existing reality around childhood cancer as well as other serious illnesses and diseases.
The information and dissemination of this problem that requires immediate solutions is of great importance as well as the support of companies such as Engel & Völkers Barcelona, who take an active part in Barcelona's society.
