Help at Home Costa Blanca were invited by Cruz Roja to a Presentation on Thursday 13th February in Alicante.

The invitation was for any people or groups who were involved in helping and assisting the Red Cross during  the Dana /floods. Our President Carmen and General Secretary Patricia attended this event

Many of the services involved in the disaster were represented, including the Guardia Civil, The local police, and Fire Brigade.  There were about 500 people in the audience mainly volunteers and employees of the Red Cross.

The main reason for the event, was to inform everyone about what had occurred. and what is still occurring.  They showed the amounts of money involved and where the money came from and where it was spent.The Red Cross have spent 350,000euros so far and plan to spend another 250,000Euros in 2020.


On top of all the money they have raised, they have provided:  furniture, Electrical goods, clothes, food, school equipment.  They made a point of stating that many local people supported this collection, and distribution.
Our shop takings  and the proceeds from the fundraiser we held also provided books and stationary for local schools who lost everything.

They showed  a film of all the disaster zones, several Red Cross experts in planning and psychology explained some of the devastating  effects for the people in our region.  Including our contact in Orihuela Costa – Pilar.

We were extremely pleased to see the work that the Red Cross has undertaken, and that they plan to continue in 2020.
