Our “HRC” project (Homeless – Response – Community). We are currently distributing food and NFIs (Non- Food Items) to recently identified homeless persons within the Marbella area 3-4 times per month.
The real number of homeless is undocumented and most likely unknown. An estimated 46% of homeless people in Spain are foreigners, 80% are male and the average age is 42. And over 24% of those living on the streets have been doing so for a period of 10 years or more.
We at Collective Calling understand that it´s difficult for those living on the streets and to get a good intake of nutrition. Therefore, we make sure that the food we provide has a high nutritional value with lots of protein, vegetables, and fruits.
It’s not just about serving food either, one of our beneficiaries said our visits are his “favorite time of the week”. Another of our beneficiaries said, “we really do appreciate the service you guys give, the meal is really important to us”.
We know it’s not just about providing food, it’s also about having a chat, helping to bring dignity back to the lives of the people who we serve and making them feel alive. We don’t ask our beneficiaries about their problems but if they want to share, we’re here to listen.
We couldn’t do what we do without the kindness and generosity of our fellow volunteers who come to help serve the food and interact with our beneficiaries so a big thank you goes out to all of those involved!
