Anemon ODV

came to life thanks to the passion of a group of friends united by the desire to fill a debt towards life. We believe it is beautiful and right to be able to give and do something for other less fortunate people. Thanks to all those who support us, some through their personal commitment and some through a financial contribution.

Anemon ODV intervenes on different types of projects to aid associations or missions that already exist and are well rooted in their context.
Our interventions are in the technical, healthcare or financial aid fields.

Through preliminary verification work, we guarantee, without wasting resources, the seriousness of the objectives and we are witnesses of the projects that we follow until their total completion. Each project employs a manager supported by a technical or healthcare operational team depending on the type needed. Members, volunteers or simple supporters with different professional skills collaborate in the association and make their work, consultancy and logistical contributions available or simply collaborate with economic contributions.

ANEMON operates without fixed structure and management costs to allocate all financial aid to the projects.
