In March, Carrefour’s Fundacion Solidaridad was awarded the FEDER Prize in recognition of its continued support for children suffering from rare diseases.
Rafael Arias Salgado – President of Carrefour’s Fundacion Solidaridad – was presented with the prize by her Majesty the Queen of Spain, who presided over the official ceremony to mark World Rare Disease Day.
In 2014, Carrefour Spain and its Foundation marked "the year of support for rare diseases" in order to set up a fund for low-income families. This campaign helped provide orthopaedic equipment and cover children's rehabilitation costs.
This award from the Spanish Federation of rare diseases (FEDER) is recognition of Carrefour employees' commitment to this project!
