At Engel & Völkers we are very happy to announce that our collaboration with the first Aldeas Children’s Help Centre in Palma’s Son Gotleu district is making a positive impact on the community.
Recently our team met the centre’s manager Encarnación Jimenez to have a detailed look into the children’s help project that will provide day care to some 70 children from ages 3 - 14 years. Her daily business is full of tragic & sad stories, but also happy faces and success stories. This is what she has to say:
‘It´s another world, we all know it - but being there, talking to them, understanding their problems & needs you can even feel it. I am sure that little things bring lots of smile on the children´s faces. Together with all of you we can support them and try to convert this project it in a long-term-happy-smiling-partnership. Let´s do it!’
Currently they have 10 children between 3 and 14 years of age, however until summer they are expecting to have 40 children. Appallingly some basic necessities like clothes and toys are scarce and we at Engel & Völkers have come up with an idea of donating these items to the centre in order to bring a smile on the little children’s faces:
· Clothes: Clothes are missing. Some kids do not have adequate shoes. One little girl came along with open-toed sandals during the cold days.
Many of you have kids. Any clothes or shoes to sort out? Important: clean & good conditions. We would collect it in the Santa Maria office or Palma Paseo Maritimo office.
· Toys: Toys are missing. Especially educative toys. (e.g.: Puzzles for 4 years of age or more, Chessboards, Dominoes, Twisters, Memory board games, Dolls with replaceable dresses, etc.)
Same like clothes: Happy to collect it in the Santa Maria or Palma Paseo Maritimo Office.
