UCAM's Student Council offers its volunteers to the 45 municipalities of the Region

Already 180 students from UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia have decided to combine their online classes and exams with these tasks, which has allowed them to provide all the city councils in the region with a remote support service for the elderly, joining other initiatives such as educational support for minors without resources or collaborating in the distribution of food for needy people that take place in some municipalities.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;

The success of the telephone support project for elderly people living alone, set up in the cities of Murcia and Cartagena in collaboration with their city councils, has led the UCAM Student Council to offer this project to the 45 city councils in the region, as it already has 180 students who have offered to volunteer, even though they have to combine this task with classes and exams at the university. The next municipalities to join this initiative have been La Unión and Mazarrón, where those who live alone can request to receive these calls by calling +34 656279773 and +34 968591115 respectively.

This proposal joins the tasks that are already being carried out by a hundred of these UCAM volunteer students in 16 municipalities of the Region, such as the distribution of masks, educational support to children without resources or taking out the garbage of older people through the City Council of Murcia, and helping in cooperative stores and Caritas food distribution in 11 municipalities. A group of consecrated women from UCAM also support the parish priest of Javalí Viejo in caring for the sick.

Open to new initiatives

Due to the great response that UCAM students have given to the volunteering project created by the Student Council in the face of the coronavirus crisis, the Student Council keeps the e-mail consejodeestudiantes@ucam.edu available so that non-profit organisations in the Region that wish to do so may request their collaboration, always within the criteria of security and mobility established by the state of alert.
