THE Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, announced last week that the Town Hall will use one million euros from the municipal surplus for emergency social aid or specific programmes launched as a result of the Covid health crisis in Spain. The councillor reported on the new measures adopted by the government team and stated that the objective “is to attend to the families who are experiencing the worst” and has emphasized that “from the first moments we were clear that the priority was to focus efforts in the social area. This funding will be added to the budget of ten million euros that the delegation of Social Rights has for this year 2020, of which half a million euros was linked to emergency social aid, “with which, to attend to this health crisis, we tripled the amount initially planned.” Muñoz recalled that, in the social sphere, the soup kitchen was also launched “immediately” to continue serving schoolchildren assigned to the Syga Plan in Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara. Also pointing out that “requests are being met so that no one is neglected not only in relation to food, but in services such as home care, telecare or groups of older people or homeless”.
