This year’s campaign of the EnREDando corporate volunteering group was aimed at purchasing a van for the NGO Messengers of Peace in Jordan, essential for providing the necessary assistance to Syrian refugees that continue to arrive to this country in very precarious conditions.
With this goal, EnREDando organised a charity concert to show solidarity that involved performances by employees of Red Eléctrica de España, who shared their musical, singing and deejaying facets for three hours of live music entertainment at the venue ‘Intruso de Madrid’. The music bands from the Company, Noviembre XI and El Ártico, played national pop-rock songs and other cover versions. Between the two band performances, DJ Faser entertained the audience with the best music of the 90s.
In February, Juan Manuel Rodríguez, TSO International Organisations Department Manager and organising sponsor of the initiative, presented to Father Ángel, founder and director of the NGO Messengers of Peace, proceeds the from ticket sales for the concert, including row 0, which totalled €1,057, plus the Company’s €10,000 contribution, raised by the corporate volunteering group ‘EnREDando’. By means of these contributions, the amount needed to buy the van was reached, which will allow them to continue with their mission of helping refugees, fulfilling the mandate of the organisation’s motto: "work for the integration of the most vulnerable".
The idea came about from the initiative of some employees of Red Eléctrica who knew Father Carlos, leader of Messengers of Peace in Jordan, when they were working on providing advisory consulting to the National Electric Power Company, the sole transmission agent and operator of the electricity system in Jordan.
