Rioja DOCa’s 5th Fair of the Stars raises funds for health clinic for Syrian refugees

Gómez Cruzado and 13 other wineries from Rioja DOCa participate in this event held Thursday April 27th in the Círculo Logroñés
Haro, 27 de abril de 2017.- The Riojan non-profit organization Kaipacha Inti celebrates Rioja DOCa’s 5th annual Fair of the Stars on April 27th in the Círculo Logroñés to raise funds for a health clinic for disabled people in the Syrian refugee camp Zaatari in Jordan. Gómez Cruzado and 13 other wineries from Rioja DOCa will take part in this event held in the Círculo Logroñés from 6 to 9:30 pm.
The Zaatari refugee camp is located to the north of Amman, the capital of Jordan. This camp provides shelter and basic services to almost 80,000 Syrians who have fled their country’s ongoing civil war. “Among the refugee population, disabled persons are an especially vulnerable group as they are at greater risk of being exploited, suffering violence or experiencing difficulties when accessing services. Elderly people also face these same risks", explains the non-profit organization Kaipacha Inti, which is active in the region in collaboration with the Foundation for the Social Promotion of Culture (FPSC).
“The greatest reward for the FPSC team and all the volunteers is to see how people are transformed when they have access to mobility equipment, physical therapy, and
even theater workshops”, explains a spokesperson for Kaipacha Inti. All these activities “improve children’s self-esteem, instill them with confidence, and above all, improve their physical and mental health”. The MAPHRE Foundation named this initiative of the FPSC 2016’s Best Social Action.

Gómez Cruzado will join the event with the wineries Abel Mendoza, Barón de Ley, CVNE, Finca Allende, Marqués de Murrieta, Pujanza, Remírez de Ganuza, Roda, Sierra Cantabria, Telmo Rodríguez, Valenciso and Viñedos del Contino.
