THE Red Cross and the Almeria provincial government have joined forces to ensure no child goes without toys this Christmas.
Diputacion de Almeria Social Well-being, Equality and Family deputy Angeles Martinez and Red Cross youth co-ordinator Javier Alastrue unveiled the ‘¿Nos ayudas a hacerlo realidad?’ (will you help us to make it a reality’) campaign on Monday, which aims to collect from around the province new, non-violent, non-sexist and education toys which will be distributed to socially disadvantaged kids.
The aim of the project is to develop the educational importance of play in terms of its role in values including tolerance, diversity and respect.
Javier Alastrue explained the reason for asking for donations of new toys was so that children receiving the donations did not stand out from other kids.
Angeles Martinez invited all provincial residents to do their bit, commenting, “Play is essential in children’s development, and not all of them have access to toys at this time of year. Hence we encourage all Almerians to make a donation in the different boxes distributed around the capital and the province.”
There are collection boxes at the Diputation’s Provincial Palace, in branches of the Banco Santander and La Caixa and at Red Cross bases throughout Almeria until Wednesday
