Last Wednesday, Francesca (5 years old) and Valentina (3) were terrified of their father. Diego Pablo SimeonHe told them he was leaving because Atlético was playing a game. Today we have a food collection!, Little Valentina said excitedly to her mother, Carla Pereira. No, it’s the next game, they fixed it at home.

all Star Carla Pereira, is one of the most recognizable and involved faces with this crusade against hunger (as she herself defines it). “It’s not a myth that the hunger queue is getting longer. I go to many places and spend years with people who need it because I love it. It’s a profession that you have or you have.” There are many families out there that used to support the standard of living and today they need help,” says Carla, at the door of this seventh edition of the Solidarity Campaign.

Neither Francesca nor Valentina existed when, at the end of the 13/14 season, which led to the Athletic League title, the idea began to take shape. “Somehow we realized that we have to give back to the society all the affection they had given us that year. We were impressed by the situation the country was going through and it happened for us to make a crusade against hunger. We decided to join the Red Cross and support the Fundación Atltico de Madrid, two strong and reliable organizations. They gave us the certainty that everything we are going to collect will reach the hands of those most in need. Will go”, recalls Carla Pereira.

The first campaign was a rainy night in 2015, on the features of Vicente Caldern, “The game was late and we had high hopes, but we knew the situation was complicated. But we realized the people were coming. Although they lost and it rained, they kept coming. We saw a sense of solidarity that didn’t. We could have lost and obviously, we had to commit ourselves more year after year”, he recalls. In that 2015 they collected 10 tonnes of food. A figure that was rising: 16 in 2016, 18 in 2017, 20 in 2018, 30 in 2019 and 36 in 2021. and inspires her to better herself and reach out to more people”, she continues.

her husband, Diego Pablo Simeon, is an essential part of the campaign which will celebrate its seventh edition this Sunday. “Diego takes care of his work, but he always feels that we cannot sit idly by. In the first days of the pandemic lockdown, he told me: “We cannot sit idly by, we have to do something. You have to collaborate and connect. “Immediately we cooperated and bought a truck. It’s a little bit that drives and what we execute”.

This Sunday, Wanda will experience the #ContraElHumbreLoDamosTodo campaign with Metropolitano, Francesca and Valentina. “He grew up in a privileged world because of his father’s work. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be responsible for our part. There are many people who are waiting for him.” To be another grain of sand for the hard fight against hunger.
