The Marbella Rotary Club donates 10.000? in aid of Cudeca
Hotel Puente Romano, 27th May 2008.
Last night, the Marbella Rotary Club President, Mr. Carlos Zabala, presented Cudeca with a cheque for 10,000?. Rocío Torres Mancera, PR & Fundraising Manager was delighted to accept the generous donation on behalf of all the team at the Hospice.
The funds raised originated from the Charity Cuban Dinner held at the Marbella Golf and Country Club on Saturday 19th April.
Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice is an NGO offering specialist palliative care to patients suffering from advanced non-curable cancer within the province of Málaga. As an ONG charity, they are totally self-funding and it is with grateful appreciation to the warm hearted support they receive from generous people like the Rotary Club that during the years we have been able to complete the Hospice Centre and to care for more than 5,000 patients at the end of their life.
The 10,000? raised at the dinner will go towards saving the in-patient unit from it?s current financial déficit of 600.000?, part of the 2 million Euro annual expenditure that the Hospice faces every year. Since the In-patient Unit opened in 2006, Cudeca has struggled to cover the high maintenance costs and is under threat of closure by 2009 due to lack of economic support.
