THE owner of one Costa del Sol business has decided to help the homeless locally by leaving out parcels of freshly-prepared food at the end of every day.

Marco, whose real name is Mohammad Maleki but is known by the nickname around Benalmadena, is putting out sandwiches at the end of every working day for the homeless and those who need them at his business, Cafe Marco, on the Costa del Sol.
The businessman, who made headlines earlier this year after saving the lives of two children in the sea in Benalmadena, is now encouraging other local restaurants to join him in helping the local community.
Marco said: “At the end of every working day from 8pm there shall be a little box of kindness left outside for anyone who might be hungry to help themselves.”
He added: “No one should go hungry and I would like to highlight this.
“I would also like to urge other businesses to possibly do the same.”
Marco told the Euro Weekly News why he is helping the local homeless, saying that he had noticed that the pandemic had left a lot of families with less money than before.
He explained that the initiative has been a success, saying, “every night after I have put the food box out in the morning it´s empty.”
He added: “I have been telling people in front of the church to come here to take food every day.
“I am also telling people that if you know of anyone in need please let them know they can come for food here.”
Marco is now encouraging other businesses to help out locally and is also urging the public to let anyone who is need to know they can come for food at Cafe Marco on Avenida de la Constitucion 6, Local 11, Arroyo de la Miel.
