Formentera gives nearly €54k to special needs groups, individuals

The Formentera Council's social welfare department reports that in the first quarter of 2019 the administration is on track to pay what it owes in grants and assistance from 2018 to individuals and associations.

Sixteen grants (a total of €11,238) will be distributed to islanders over 65 years old or with a minimum disability rate of 33 per cent. Classed as “technical” support, the money is for purchases of materials like wheelchairs, mounting accessible equipment in vehicles, special bedding, hearing aids, dental prosthetics and services like physiotherapy and speech therapy.

Four payouts totalling €42,6000 will be made to groups. The Pau Mayans association for the integration of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (APMIPTEA), the association of people with special needs of Eivissa and Formentera (APNEEF), the local chapter of Asociación Española contra el Cáncer and the Formentera association for people living with Multiple chemical sensitivity, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia and other ailments.

Councillor Vanessa Parellada announced she was “thrilled to offer help to individuals and entities that need it”, pointing out that “advancing welfare is our department's guiding aspiration”.
