Malaga orphans show their gratitude to Expat Spanish community

YOU may all remember that in October Euro Weekly News held a spooktacular Halloween party where we invited all of our readers, friends, and residents to help us celebrate and raise funds for the orphaned children at the Ciudad de Los Niños

in Malaga. The evening was a fangtastic success and through the help of our amazing local community, we smashed our €8280 target by reaching a total of €10,016 to be donated to the vulnerable children.

With the funds raised, we were able to buy some much needed gifts for the youngsters such as 29 new mattresses, a €100 clothing voucher each, Christmas hampers which included gifts and toiletry bags with aftershave and a T-shirt and jacket each.

To say the children were grateful is an understatement but it showed that simple acts of kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

EWN has now received a lovely letter of thanks from the orphanage offering their most sincere gratitude for the gifts and the help that our Euro Weekly community has given them. We feel that this is such an amazing gesture that we should share it with all of our loyal supporters who helped this deserving cause.
