€50,000 fund for refugees in Alicante

RED CROSS: Alicante head office has co-ordinated the relief effort

THE Red Cross in Alicante has raised €50,000 that will be used to help the refugees arriving in the province from Syria and other countries in conflict.

The NGO said it was working to “prepare for the imminent arrival” of these refugees. More money is expected to be added to this €50,000 with revenues generated from the ‘Dia de la Banderita’ hosted at the start of the month with a further €30,000 in donations still to come in. The Red Cross is now trying to increase the spaces available to house the refugees as the exact number is still unknown.
