The Government of Lanzarote this week announced that it had donated 30,000 euros to the Red Cross through its Social Welfare Budget.
The objective is that the Red Cross can provide vouchers of 150 euros for the purchase of books and 120 euros for the purchase of school uniforms for those families that need this help.
School materials and nominated checks will also be available to pay for extracurricular activities, so that disadvantaged children do not miss out on educational experiences.
