MARBELLA Council has announced it will be giving €462,000 to two local charities.


The council said the Marbella charities will receive €462,000.
The funding will go to the Red Cross and the Marbella Fibromyalgia Association (Afimar).
The Mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, said that the Red Cross will receive €443,000.  She said: “This is the fourth consecutive year that aid has been granted that aims to serve a group as vulnerable as people without home, with which the association carries out commendable work offering direct, close and immediate attention and follow-up in cases that require it.”
She said that the council’s funding had allowed the charity to create a centre, offering care for the homeless.  The centre last year offered aid to more than 450 people.
The delegate for the Red Cross in Marbella, Julio Pulido, thanked the council for allowing the charity to offer aid to homeless people.
Mayor Muñoz  said that €19,000 would also go to Afimar.  She said: “It is a group that pays fundamental attention to people, mostly women, who suffer from a disease that runs with pain and chronic fatigue, and to which it offers the necessary tools to improve its quality of life.”
