A PLACIDO Domingo charity concert held at the Palma Arena last year has enabled the Iberostar and the Sa Nostra Social Works Foundations to buy vehicles specially adapted for use by the handicapped, Iberostar's Managing Director, Pedro Piza reported yesterday.
Piza explained that the Solidarity in Transport project is directly aimed at helping the handicapped, the unemployed and homeless, and the chronically ill, get around more easily. So far, Piza confirmed, five vans have been given for use by non-profit making organisations. The first went in April this year to Catholic charity, Caritas, on Ibiza.
Piza said that the Foundations had been approached by 39 voluntary organisations, which showed, he said, how important it is to provide support to groups which are carrying out valuable social work but don't have the financial resources.
Sa Nostra's Assistant Director Llorenç Julia said that the project responds perfectly to our social policy of integrating the disadvantaged.
