A VAN load of goods was delivered to The Franciscan Shelter for Men at Palma de Gandia recently by HELP of Denia and Marina Alta.

The shelter provides a home and nursing care for around 65 homeless men, many of whom suffer from mental or physical illness, some of whom are terminally ill.

These men would otherwise be on the streets and unlikely to survive without this special care.

Admission is solely on the basis of need and all nationalities and religions are accepted.

The hospice is funded entirely by charitable donations, with no state aid or official grants.

HELP of Denia and Marina Alta has been supporting the shelter for many years now, providing clothing, food, medicine and medical equipment and toiletries.

The Franciscans need money and donations on a regular basis to continue their work in the hospice. At this time of year, the men are particularly in need of toiletries.

If you would like to make a donation, drop offs can be made at the HELP office in La Xara, the HELP desk at Hospital de Denia-MarinaSalud or the HELP charity shop in Moraira.
