Vélez-Málaga's Red Cross  starts to extend services
  • The charity is now able to offer the loan of physical aids such as wheelchairs, crutches, walking frames, and beds

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the Red Cross (Cruz Roja) in Vélez-Málaga, which also runs an English-language service, was forced to suspend many services and activities.

However, volunteer Richard Weale has told SUR that the charity is now able to extend some of the services that it provided beforehand.

"As the situation improves, it is hoped that the Red Cross can gradually offer more services and activities," he said.

In the meantime, Richard confirms that the charity is now able to offer the loan of physical aids such as wheelchairs, crutches, walking frames, and beds. "There is no charge for the loan of these items and, apart from the beds, they are normally in stock and available at relatively short notice."

Lifts to attend important appointments such as medical checkups and the supply and installation of emergency help alarms are also now available. Richard noted that there is a charge for the alarm service. For further information and help, contact: email: 29094social@cruzroja.es or phone: 952 50 03 21.
