Queen Letizia began her day with a videoconference with the Spanish Federation of Brain Injury (FEDACE) to learn about the importance of starting rehabilitation activities as soon as possible so as not to continue with the loss of abilities and decline in the quality of life of people in need this resource.
As they have explained, assisting therapeutic daycare centres fulfils two fundamental functions: on the one hand, working to improve and maintain people’s capacities and, on the other, freeing families, caregivers, mainly women, in order that they can continue with their habitual life, in the labour, social, or any other field.
Currently, the member entities of FEDACE are very concerned about their economic situation since most of the subsidies have stopped, and even some private funders may reduce or cancel their contributions to carry out projects in favour of the people with brain damage or their families. In addition, it is very possible that this crisis affects the families of people with brain damage, with a probable family impoverishment, at an economic level.
Next Felipe and Letizia held a meeting with the Livestock and Dairy Sector in which they addressed different aspects related to the sector, such as the current situation of the company and its adaptation and operation during the COVID 19 crisis as an essential company. They have also shared some aspects related to their future projections.
Throughout the conversation, the President of the company, Bertino Velasco, highlighted to Felipe and Letizia the importance that the work carried out by CAPSA FOOD is having, both for the dairy sector and for Spanish society. In this period, and fulfilling the purpose of the dairy company to give the livestock farmer a future, CAPSA FOOD has guaranteed 100% of the collection of its livestock partners and the employment of all its workers, as well as the supply of its products for the consumption of Spanish society.
In the course of the meeting, they presented the actions of the company to contribute in solidarity through donations with Spanish civil society during the pandemic, collaborating, through the donation of products with the network of public hospitals in the Principality of Asturias, Red Cross, Food Bank, Quirón Clinics, Meliá medicalized hotels, among others, in addition to the commitment of free delivery of more than 1 million litres of milk to the Spanish hospitality at its reopening.
The Royal couple ended the day with a videoconference in which they talked to representatives of the Agrifood Sector ( ANECOOP) and its ability to face complex situations. They learnt about the impact of COVID19 and the change that it is causing at all levels: productive, organizational, commercial and personal.
Among the measures adopted by ANECOOP is the creation of a coordination body, which assesses the general situation daily and contrasts it with a team of coordinators who are in permanent contact with the partners to have updated and constant information and to adapt their activity to the evolution of events; the rapid application of sanitary measures (the implementation of telework has been promoted; currently 72% of the workforce is operating from home); assists partners in adopting the required safety and hygiene measures at their facilities and launching the “Life rations for the countryside” campaign, which highlights the strategic value of the agri-food sector as a strong sector capable of facing situations of enormous difficulty like the current one.
In 2018-2019, ANECOOP Spain exceeded 842,000 tons of commercialized volume and 713 million euros of turnover. The consolidated of all the Group companies exceeded one million tons sold and 906 million euros of turnover.
