  1. 1. Apartment Barcelona supports the Casal dels Infants in the fight against child poverty with new initiative The company is set to donate one Euro to the Casal dels Infants centre for the support of disadvantaged children for every apartment reservation made with the agency this summer. Barcelona, July 4, 2013 - Apartment Barcelona, a leading short and long-term apartment rental company based in Barcelona, has recently signed up to be part of the new “Checking Solidario” project initiated by Apartur, an association for tourist management companies in Barcelona, in order to support the Casal dels Infants in its fight against child poverty. Apartment Barcelona will contribute one Euro for every reservation they receive during the months of June, July and August 2013 to the program which provides aid to mothers with babies from 0-3 years old that are seen to be at risk of social exclusion. An initiative necessary to an alarming situation The economic crisis that is currently affecting Spain has caused a significant increase in the demand for assistance to associations fighting poverty such as the Casal dels Infants. Recent statistics indicate that one in four Spanish children lives in poverty. In the face of this alarming situation, Apartment Barcelona is set to do its part in the fight against the social exclusion of disadvantaged children, in collaboration with the Checking Solidarity project and alongside other companies in the sector. "We are delighted to participate in an initiative as necessary as Checking Solidarity and we’d like to congratulate its project managers. In addition to responding to an urgent demand for financial support, we hope this project will also serve to promote the excellent work of the Casal dels Infants to visitors to Barcelona, and further strengthen the bond between the tourism sector and the
