The Spanish town of Campanillas has been flooded twice consecutively, once by raging Storm Gloria and then by waves of compassionate humanitarian aid.
An estimated 5,500 hours of volunteer work were carried out between 27 January and 7 February, more than 18,000 units of cleaning and hygiene products and 7,000 items of clothing and household linen were delivered, more than 180 homes in Campanillas were affected and more than 400 people removed mud from the streets in the first week.
This data has been collected in the report Social and Humanitarian Emergency in Campanillas prepared by the Social Organization for Humanitarian Action (OSAH).
The action of more than 120 volunteers was also coordinated in support tasks such as receiving donations, classifying products and delivering them to those affected.
