WORK has begun on the construction of a new centre for the Asociacion Contra el Cancer in Huercal Overa.
The announcement was made by Mayor Domingo Fernandez during a book launch at the town hall. The book, Nuestro Tiempo el Limitado (Our Time is Limited), was written by Carmen Montero, who has donated 150 copies to help with fundraising for the centre. She has dedicated the book to the town of Huercal Overa.
The project is headed up by the town council so the association can have a place to continue its work in caring for people with the disease. Fernandez said: “This centre will reward the members of the association and their selfless efforts made for our sick people.”
The president of the association reiterated its thanks to the mayor and the council for their support and thanked Carmen Montero for transmitting her message to keep fighting.
