Mobile collection campaign to investigate against rare diseases

The Spanish Federation of Campings (FEEC) and the Llamada Solidaria Foundation have launched the campaign "Your old mobile phone, your hope" in order to collect used mobile phones and fund research programs against rare diseases.

It announced this Thursday the FEEC in a statement where he explains that the goal is that campers, apart from wearing the swimsuit, towel and sunscreen, bring to the campin your old or broken mobile and deposit it in the boxes that you will find in reception .

The terminals will be recycled later and the money raised will finance research programs, therapies and support for families affected by some rare pathology.

In one month more than a hundred campers from all over the country have registered for the initiative.

According to the statement, 24 million mobile phones are discarded every year in Spain, of which only 8% are recycled.

In Spain there are three million people, mostly children, who suffer from some kind of rare or rare disease for which there are no treatments or cure.
