Now that the bad weather, floods, snow and cold winds have hopefully abated, we can all start to look ahead to Spring. MABS did not escape unaffected, with flooding in both San Javier and Mazarrón medical equipment storage rooms in December.

Fortunately with help from Volunteers swabbing out the flooded storage areas and the purchase of a de-humidifier, damage to equipment was kept to a minimum. After that of course, came the snow in January and then we had a MABS vehicle stuck in snow in Calasparra! The MABS car with driver and patient was rescued by a friend of the driver who had a four wheel drive vehicle. Thank you to all who went out of their way to aid us in what were difficult times.
