21/09/2009 - The Anfi Group is always keen to help local causes and is delighted to have participated in a fundraising event for a very worthwhile local initiative - Alzheimer Canarias.
Alzheimer Canarias is a charity which is committed to providing support and assistance to individuals and families affected by the illness. The organisation works to represent and defend the interests of patients and their families, helping them to get the adequate information on medical resources as well as social, legal and psychological support.
Education is also important for Alzheimer Canarias and they organize regular training courses for professionals, family members and the public with the aim of improving patient care and increasing public awareness of the illness and the impact it has on families caring for their loved ones.
The Anfi Group donated a week’s accommodation in a luxurious family suite in its newest development – the Anfi Emerald Club in the beautiful Tauro Valley.
The lucky winner was Mrs Elena Navarro Mesa, who along with her husband and two children enjoyed an “unforgettable” relaxing week. Elena, whose friend’s parents both suffer from Alzheimer, supports the fund-raiser every year.
This, however, is the first year she has won a prize. She said, “It was unforgettable, it was just perfect. We have never holidayed with such luxury. We never left the poolside. It was wonderful”.
Mr Modesto Gil Prieto, president of the organisation said, “The funds raised will go towards helping the upkeep of client services for the ill and their families, especially those who are cared for at home and who are largely forgotten by society”.
The Anfi Group has a continuing commitment to support local initiatives and charities and is pleased to have helped an organisation that provides such an invaluable service to the less fortunate in the community.
