4th World

The First World's financial crisis has increased the size of the fourth world, and over the next two years we will probably see things getting harder for the people that have had the misfortune to slip in to this slot in our society. Lately members of Mediterranea Mallorca have manifested their desire to start working to help this sector. As most members know we have always been doing things in the 4th World but the time has probably come to start taking a more active and on going role.

Possible steps to be taken:

1)Put together a team of volunteers. Organise the team.
2)Identify problems we could act upon.
3)Hold meetings with other NGO's that work in this sector to learn from them and evaluate if we can cooperate with them.
4)Locate a place that could act as warehouse (sorting, storing etc)
5)Promote awareness and recruit helpers/members
6)Potential projects
  • a)Providing food to dining rooms and refuges
  • c)Stockpiling toys for the Xmas season
  • d)Linking up restaurants and dining halls so that left over food can be distributed to those in need.
  • e)Locating vulnerable communities (illegal immigrants, ethic subgroups, etc), investigating ways in which we can help them.
If you would like to help in this sector please get in touch with us on Tel: 971676334 or email-:>ong@groc.info
