Fire in Malaga charity shop


THE NGO Butterfly Children Charity (DEBRA) has launched an appeal to enable its Charity Shop in Malaga to reopen after a devastating fire. 

The Butterfly Children Charity (DEBRA) is facing a huge challenge after the disastrous fire in its Malaga charity shop a month ago. The team of managers and volunteers are working tirelessly in an attempt to reopen the shop but unfortunately the damage caused by the fire means that it requires a complete refurbishment.

The problem is that as time is passing so is the cost of rent and maintenance so the charity is asking for the public’s collaboration to help to reopen the shop as soon as possible. The charity has created a donation page on ‘’ under the name “Renacer de las Cenizas” (Rebirth from the Ashes). The target is €5,400 and all donations are appreciated no matter how big or small.


Parallel to this the shop’s team have already started to make contact with various local companies in an attempt to reimburse the stock. El Corte Ingles in Malaga has joined the campaign by organising a collection point in the store on the May12 and 13 from 10.30am until 9.30pm.

If there are any other local companies able to collaborate by either organising a collection point or donating items the charity would be extremely grateful for the support.

In particular they are looking for good quality new and second hand items, eg clothes, shoes, toys, books and decorative items. It is important to remember that the Butterfly Children Charity Shops rely on donations in order to raise the funds needed to improve the lives of the Butterfly Children Families.
