The Red Cross currently looks after 312 families, providing them with basic food items. However, they are running low on stock and urgently need basics such as rice, pasta, oil, flour, tinned food and long life milk for the children. Please look in your cupboards and if you have anything to donate to this cause bring it along to The Original Charity Shop on Avenida Fontana 14, Javea, to the Library in Javea Park or directly to the Red Cross headquarters. It may come as a surprise that there are still families out there in need of help, but this is the reality of our times. The situation simply has not improved for everyone, even if the authorities would have us believe otherwise. So please help the Red Cross to support those less fortunate than ourselves.
