New Charitable Organization, Humanity Heroes

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 dicembre 2019

Advanced Nutrients, a leading global nutrient company, announced today its new corporate social responsibility initiative, Humanity Heroes. Founded by the company’s CEO, Michael ‘BigMike’ Straumietis, Humanity Heroes helps cultivate sustainable communities, by providing them with the tools necessary to strengthen their foundations and propel them toward lasting change.
BigMike, this starts with helping the homeless population in Los Angeles, a cause that is near and dear to his heart. Homelessness is a chronic issue in Southern California, one that affects nearly 60,000 Los Angeles residents on any given night. To date, BigMike’s philanthropic efforts have led to donations of more than $500k in non-perishable items to Skid Row. The nonprofit kicked off its 2020 initiatives on December 21 with a day of giving in its hometown of Los Angeles. In collaboration with the local organization My Friend’s House Foundation, Humanity Heroes distributed 3,000 backpacks filled with non-perishable items and personal care essentials to three crucial locations in Downtown Los Angeles at Skid Row. Ghetto Kitchen Soul Food, a local catering company, will be providing lunch for 1,000 volunteers and the homeless community in the area.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 ottobre 2018

Buenos Aires: Sport at the Service of Humanity launched its Young Leaders Mentoring Program, which aims to prepare athletes and young leaders in sport to “Win in Life” and inspire their communities through the power of their example. The program, launched with the support of ISPS Handa, will see four young leaders from South Sudan, Canada, Philippines and Israel embark on a transformational one-year journey under the mentorship of four distinguished sport and business champions. The four young leaders taking part in the first year’s program are: • Anjelina Nadai – A 23-year-old track runner from the Kakuma Refugee Camp in South Sudan. She was a member of the Refugee Olympic Team at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. • Chantal Sathi – A Canadian of Sri Lankan Heritage; she is a kick boxer, a personal trainer and a community youth leader and has a degree in Kinesiology and a Masters in Theology in Urban and International Development • John Paul Masubay – A 24-year-old football player, coach, mentor and youth leader from Tacloban, Philippines. • Shahid Bishara – A 15-year-old female squash player who lives with her family in an Arab town in Israel. She got involved in squash at age 10 as part of a special project that that aimed to help bridge gaps between Jewish and Arab cultures in Israel.
These mentees will have the privilege of being mentored by the following four mentors: • HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein – IOC Member, President of Jordan Olympic Committee, Founder/Chairman of Generations for Peace • Victor Montagliani – FIFA Vice President, President CONCACAF • Renata Simril – President and CEO of LA84 Foundation • Jon Tibbs OBE – Founder/Chairman of JTA
The mentees and mentors met for the first time earlier today during an interaction session, in which the mentors shared their experience, stories and vision of how they see the mentorship relationship unfolding. Tomorrow, the mentees will meet with IOC President Thomas Bach who has regularly shown his support for the Sport at the Service of Humanity, most notably at its first Global Conference on Faith & Sport in 2016 where he was one of the featured speakers.
The first cohort of mentees will become the inaugural Sport at the Service of Humanity Global Youth Ambassadors – the faith of the movement at home and internationally. Every year, new athletes and young leaders in sport will be selected as mentees and carry the Sport at the Service of Humanity message to new parts of the world.

Fast-paced living as a new model of being”, raccolta del lavoro di Scuola Sinderesi del precedente anno accademico, a cura di Mons. Samuele Sangalli.
Saranno presenti Sua Eminenza Card. Leonardo Sandri, Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali; il Dr. Hermann Kues, membro del Consiglio Direttivo della Fondazione Konrad Adenauer, già sottosegretario parlamentare presso il Ministero Federale per le Famiglia, gli Anziani, le Donne e la Gioventù; e la senatrice Emma Fattorini, già docente universitario ordinario di storia contemporanea (“Sapienza” Università di Roma) e giornalista. Interverranno anche il Rettore della Pontificia Università Gregoriana P. Nuno da Silva Gonçalves, la dott.ssa Caroline Kanter, Direttrice della Fondazione Konrad Adenauer, e Mons. Samuele Sangalli, Docente coordinatore di “Scuola Sinderesi” e curatore della pubblicazione. Il volume raccoglie due prefazioni (Card. Leonardo Sandri, P. Nuno Gonçalves), tre relazioni (Mons. Sangalli, Prof. John Loughlin, don Alberto Rocca) e i contributi dei partecipanti a “Scuola Sinderesi” elaborati nel corso dell’anno accademico 2015-2016, durante i quali si sono interrogati sulle conseguenze di un’umanità passata a stili di vita segnati dalla velocità e dall’essere costantemente interconnessi. Sono emersi nella ricerca significativi cambiamenti nel rapportarsi allo spazio/tempo, nella formazione delle culture, nell’organizzazione del lavoro e, soprattutto, nel dare un significato all’esistenza umana.

To build a better world for humanity by 2015

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 settembre 2010

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are a series of targets agreed by the 189 UN member States in 2000 to build a better world for humanity by 2015. While progress has been made in improving lives, millions still live in unacceptable poverty, facing hunger, lack of rights, and disease.  World leaders will meet at the UN Headquarters in New York for the High-Level Meeting ‘MDG2010 Summit’ to assess progress and recommit to their pledges. Our members and partners are engaging in the meeting.  Caritas Internationalis Secretary General Lesley-Anne Knight said, “Right now over one billion people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition because they are so poor. Our promises to lift them out of poverty will fall short on current projections.  Global partnerships for justice need decisive investments now. In achieving the MDGs, Caritas says more than just 5 rich countries need to meet the long-promised target of giving 0.7 percent of national income in development aid. Aid needs to double to $100 billion a year – and be more efficient, effective and fair.  Aid must not be tied so as to benefit the giver. Recipients must be allowed to choose and plan themselves what is best to do in their countries. More debts need to be cancelled. A poor country cannot spend money on health and education if it all goes to servicing national debt. Caritas will be following the MDG2010 Summit through its office in New York, where its Permanent Delegate to the United Nations Joseph Donnelly is a member of the General Assembly President’s MDG2010 Summit Task Force.

Help for Haiti

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 15 gennaio 2010

From Barack Obama: “On Tuesday, a catastrophic earthquake struck near Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The full extent of the damage is still being assessed, but the death toll — already in the thousands — is climbing fast. This is the worst earthquake to hit the area in more than 200 years. Entire communities have been ripped apart and as many as 3 million people have been directly affected, including tens of thousands of American citizens who are in Haiti. Our neighbors in Haiti are racing to confront the enormous devastation — and the OFA community can help. Footage is pouring in of homes collapsing, Haitians carrying injured family members, and hospitals being overrun in what was already the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. I have directed my administration to respond with a swift, coordinated, and aggressive effort to save lives. Personnel from the United States and our partners in the international community are on the ground in damaged areas right now, working side by side with the Haitian people. They’re providing much-needed food, water, and sanitation supplies, saving lives and helping local communities start to rebuild.  Despite the fact that we are experiencing tough times here at home, I encourage those who can to reach out and help. It’s in times like these that we must show the kind of compassion and humanity that has defined the best of our national character for generations.  As this story continues to unfold, I hope you will continue to keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers, as well as the many Haitian-Americans who have done so much to enrich our country and who are worried about friends and loved ones in this time of need”. (Barack Obama)
