TAXI SERVICE: Taking a ride can help refugees.
SOME 150 taxi drivers from all over Mallorca are joining a campaign to raise funds for Syrian refugees.
A total of €1,800 has already been raised across Spain by taxi drivers and Mallorca is now joining to raise even more.
The Taxi Association of the Balearics presented their campaign in Inca and drivers from Calvia, Inca, Andratx, Manacor, Felanitx, Cala d’Or (Santanyi) and Sa Pobla have put a poster in their vehicles with the message ‘send your best message of the year’ to travellers.
People are invited to send a text message with the word ‘alianza’ and six euros will be donated to the NGO, Alianza por la Solidaridad, to use for medical attention in Jordan.
For the next couple of months, every time you catch a taxi, you can support one of three clinics in Jordan who are treating refugees there as well as provide psycho-social care there.
The number to send an sms to with the message ‘alianza’ is 38014.
