CARTAMA Town Hall will offer help to make purchases to older people who have mobility problems or disabilities, who live alone at home and do not receive support for basic daily needs such as buying medicines, food or sanitary products. “This group is one of the most vulnerable to the coronavirus and for which going to a supermarket is a great effort and also a risk, therefore, we want to offer help to these residents so that they can have the products they need.” explained the Mayor of Cartama, Jorge Gallardo.

In this sense, residents should then be aware that if they know of a neighbour who is in this situation, they can call the Civil Protection telephone numbers (651 862 038) and the Social Welfare area (952 422 038) who can help with arranging shopping on their behalf.

Fuengirola Town Hall has also made arrangements to help the most vulnerable in the area. Mayor Ana Mula announced “I instructed the Department of Social Welfare and Families to draw up a list of people over 70 who live alone so that they can contact all of them in order to offer them help. We are asking them if they need food, medicine or to walk their pet, to offer them this help from municipal personnel. Some tasks that will be carried out by municipal staff, groups or volunteers willing to collaborate in this program.

Anybody who wishes to help in their endeavours can contact either of two direct telephones from the Department of Social Services, 952 58 25 44 and 952 46 07 50; to which are added the three others for customer service during these days of health alert, 952 58 93 00, 952 58 93 01 and 952 58 93 02.
