THE Franciscan Shelter for Men in Gandia cares for around 50 homeless men, many sufferimg from mental or physical illness.

The Shelter is run by a small team of Franciscan brothers who were in complete lockdown throughout the Covid pandemic but have done an amazing job.

Their usual funding sources were also impacted by the pandemic as charity shops in particular have been unable to trade and could not donate.


When the Shelter approached Teulada-Moraira Lions at a point where they were desperate for supplies, the Lions were able to donate funds at short notice which enabled a volunteer to do some much-needed shopping.

Such donations by the Teulada-Moraira Lions are only possible because of the generosity of our supporters. Our popular charity shop, the Lion’s Den, is open again and can be found beneath the Pepe La Sal supermarket on the Centro Comercial, Moraira, just past the fountain roundabout on Ctra Moraira-Teulada.

Teulada-Moraira Lions have a GoFundMe page.
