A LOCAL charity is to present 10 thousand euros next week to a regional group that try to help people with a variety of mental problems to live as independently as they can.
The donation will come from Help at Home (HAH), Costa Blanca, who after months of fundraising, will handover to a cheque to the ADIEM charity during this Tuesday´s Christmas Fair at the Emerald Isle in La Florida, which starts at 2.00 pm.
Currently, ADIEM rent six flats in Alicante, Orihuela, and Torrevieja, and now they have bought a five-bedroom property, which will be extended at a cost of 18,500 euros, with the HAH money coming as a major boost to ADIEM.
The property has a communal kitchen where everyone helps prepare meals. a dining room and sitting room; plus a pool and garden that eventually will be a vegetable garden.
The charity has all the necessary planning permission for the extension, which will help an additional three people with two bedrooms and bathrooms.
There are social workers at the home to make sure everything runs smoothly, and they help the residents to find jobs and to build their self-esteem.
