In a statement from the Cabildo de La Palma released today, Friday, October 1, they have thanked everybody who has donated supplies of clothing and food to the residents made homeless by the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

They reported that all 14 town councils involved in the appeal are extremely grateful for the solidarity and collaboration shown by the citizens of the island. For the time being, they said, the basic needs are now already covered, and as a result, they are temporarily halting the request for more items.


All the town councils on La Palma island, including Los Llanos de Aridane, El Paso, and Tazacorte, joined in the request to temporarily suspend the donations of basic necessities.
