Local Response Update

Over the course of the past 8 months we have been preparing highly nutritious hot and cold meals to our homeless friends in Fuengirola.  Low-income people and those living on the streets, who need emergency help with food and NFI´s, are benefited by this program. Not only do we meet the immediate needs in form of food and NFI´s to our homeless friends, but we also help bring dignity back to our friend´s lives by having meaningful conversations.  We focus on being a friend to the individuals we serve, as well as someone that will take the time to listen and be that shoulder to lean on.

Towards the end of last year we identified 2 locations within the Marbella district that we considered to be high on the level of need. We felt that the situation in Fuengirola was being attended to sufficiently and our efforts would be best focused on the 2 new locations in Marbella, so we have ceased our homeless response in Fuengirola and have since started to serve our new beneficiaries in Marbella. We are focusing on homeless persons, socially vulnerable families and under privileged children. Here is a snap shot of our first 6 families:

  • Family 1

x5 Children – Ages 14,13,11,8,6yrs
