THE CHILDREN'S PROJECT - (Change a childs life CACLP)

This started life from a conversation in January 2022 with Natalie from Micasamo (  property sales on LMC. She wanted to know how to help and make an impact on children in need in the local community.
Through conversations with the local primary school headmistress CACLP was created. Local children were going hungry, lacked shoes and clothes, needed simple school materials and books. Funds were raised, families fed and children fit for school. Then Ruby came on the scene followed swiftly by scores of Ukrainian children arriving in the area with nothing. this evoked amazing responses from many volunteers co-ordinated by Natlie and Ruby and one single fundraising event brought in over €18000! Dozens and families and children are now recieving help and new ventures in Cartagena and San Javier are being explored.
