THE Alcampo supermarket in Marbella presented the sum of €12,000 to Crece youth association, which is dedicated to helping disabled children and youngsters on February 17.
The generous donation is given as part of the programme of an ongoing early attention programme aimed at children up to the age of six, who suffer from intellectual disabilities. It will meet the needs of 18 disabled children as well as their families in Marbella.
The programme itself offers a combination of multi-sensory stimulation, motor rehabilitation, psychomotor, music therapy, aromatherapy, infant massage, psychology, speech therapy and physiotherapy, in order to respond as soon as possible to temporary or permanent needs presented by children with impaired development or who are at risk of suffering.
The Crece Association was created in 2003 by a group of parents of disabled children who were not able to find satisfactory answers to the needs of their children, whilst the Alcampo youth charity foundation is aimed to support associations that take care of children and youngsters.
Since its creation in 2012, the foundation has supported 24 projects all over Spain, and has donated more than €270,000 to these good causes.
