THE Balearic Island government has recognised Cancer Support Group Mallorca as one of the entities providing assistance during the coronavirus crisis.

This means volunteers are authorised to travel where necessary to aid its members.

Help provided by the group includes online counselling for anyone affected by Covid-19, volunteers calling people in isolation for a chat, assistance with queries on medical appointments and accessing government help, shopping for basic necessities, online help from different kinds of therapists for people having trouble coping with the enforced confinement, and, in exceptional cases, arranging transport for patients to medical appointments or hospital.

The group emphasised that throughout the crisis it is still helping out cancer patients on the island, but that the abovementioned services are open to any resident who needs their help.


Also that while the focus remains on non-Spanish speakers, if any Spanish residents need assistance they are of course there for them too.

“This is a time to work together and pool resources”, stressed Cancer Support Mallorca Coordinator Rebecca Upton.
