THE Councilor for Social Services, Daniel Rivas, announced on Friday, October 2, that members of the Red Cross have carried out the recharging of the forty reloadable ‘wallet’ cards handed out in Nerja.
Residents previously received a rechargeable lifeline in the shape of the of reloadable ‘wallet’ cards which have been handed out as part of a massive initiative by the Andalucian Government.
Launched as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic they allow families who are in a situation of need to meet basic requirements for food, hygiene and cleaning products in supermarkets and local shops.
The councillor pointed out that the wallet cards are recharged monthly with an amount proportional to the number of people that make up the family, 150 euros for one person, 200 for two or three and 250 for four or more.
He also reiterated his gratitude to the Ministry of Equality, Social Policies and Conciliation, and the Red Cross, for the implementation of programmes like this one, especially in times as difficult as the ones we are experiencing.
The rechargeable wallet card programme is financed by the Andalucian Government, managed by the Red Cross in coordination with the Community Social Services, which complements and reinforces the entire line of aid that has already been launched from the state, local and regional level.
