Costasol de Hipermercados-Carrefour has made a donation of food vouchers and essential items to Cruz Roja Málaga in order to meet the basic needs of more than 2,000 people in need on the Costa del Sol and in the Guadalhorce valley.

Thanks to the contributions made at the Carrefour Hypermarkets in Estepona, Torremolinos, Mijas and Coín, help will be available to those suffering the most as a result of the coronavirus lockdown.

"At Costasol de Hipermercados we want to assist the residents of the Costa del Sol and the Guadalhorce valley in these difficult times and we do so with our main asset, Carrefour's quality products," explains Javier Martín Ruiz, head of Human Resources for the company. "We will continue to be by their side for as long as they need it."

The alliance between Carrefour and the Spanish Red Cross dates back to 2001 when they created the Immediate Response Mechanism in Emergency Situations. The aim of this is to respond to the basic food needs of people affected by disasters or similar situations.

Through this alliance, more than 10,000 people affected by the pandemic have been helped across Spain so far.
