THE MAYORS of Vergel, Relleu, Benissa, Alfaz del Pi, Altea and Polop met with the Ministry of Employment and Social Security last Thursday to request that the debt owed by the EMAUS Association is written off.
The Association declared bankruptcy just over two years ago after the former managers accumulated a debt of €5 million to Social Security.
The EMAUS Association is a non-profit association that currently serves over 100 children under the protection of the Generalitat Valenciana, women victims of gender violence and people with functional diversity. In addition, the Emaus Association also manages a senior centre which houses over 70 elderly residents.
The mayors signed a petition addressed to the Minister, Fatima Banez and attended the rally held by EMAUS employees later that day.
