The ‘RESPONSE Plan’ works to manage aid for people in emergency situations and will help alleviate child poverty. In addition, actions such as training activities and collaborative actions with other  ONGs are carried out. All these actions are intended to meet the different basic needs. The request can be made at the Mazarrón Red Cross Assembly until June 30. Carmen Navarro recalled that “these grants will improve the quality of life of many families in the municipality.” Some aid that “without the collaboration of the City Council we could not continue to provide” Navarro has remarked.

“These grants will allow people in financial difficulties to meet some needs such as hygiene, electricity, food, etc. ..” explained Miguel Ángel Peña, Councillor for Social Policy. “On the part of the City Council and the Department of Social Policy we are always in continuous contact with the Red Cross to collaborate in those projects they carry out,” concluded the mayor.

Gaspar Miras has spoken with Carmen Navarro about this programme, highlighting “the benefits that it will bring to many of our neighbours who need our support, with special attention to families with children who will benefit from this programme.”
