Volunteers needed to help children's charity in Malaga
19 February 2009 @ 18:51

 LIVE, the ex pat charity supporting the children’s home in Malaga, is looking for volunteer drivers and helpers. 

 
Since its inception in 2004, LIVE – Los Internacionales viven in España – has raised funds, organised Christmas parties and presents, collected jumble and treated the children from the home to fun days out. But with only five committee members and an increasing profile the LIVE team need help to carry on their work for the Home.  
Situated on the outskirts of Malaga and flanked by shanty towns, La Ciudad de Los Niños is home to children taken into care and also a haven for the street children of the nearby “chabolas” – shanty towns.   
 
“I’m delighted that so many people want to support our cause and the response in recent weeks has been overwhelming, and that’s why we need more help.  We’re getting calls every day from people wanting to donate items to the Home, which is wonderful but it’s getting to the stage when we’re struggling to keep up with demand.
 
That’s why I’m hoping to find supporters willing to do collections and deliveries to the Home and generally help out when we get to overload.   
 
We’re looking for people with cars willing to give a couple of hours each month to help us.  It may be there are business people who do a regular run to suppliers in Malaga driving in with an empty vehicle who could make a short detour to the Home to deliver items we’ve collected for them.  We would love to hear from people up and down the region who would be prepared to act as co-ordinators for items donated. It would only involve a couple of hours each month and the personal achievement by helping the Home is hugely rewarding.” 
 
If you would like to help the Malaga Children’s Home please contact Brian Marsh  620 791 441 on Your call will be much appreciated.

Does anyone know of any children homes or charities, (not animal) in the Huercal Overa Area near the borders of Andalucia and Mucia.
We are moving to Spain soon and would lie to offer support. We are too far away from Malaga to help out with the one in that area.
