The mayor of Cartagena, Pilar Barreiro, aid delivered this afternoon at 40 clubs over the municipality amounting to 185,000 euros.

These are grants that the council of Social Care and Caja Murcia awarded each year to cover the costs of operation and activities of these associations.

Each club has received aid ranging between 3,000 and 5,000 euros, of which Caja Murcia brings in all cases 750 euros.

The mayor has emphasized increased by 10 percent of the aid with the previous year, as he has said the economic crisis cuts will not affect the city of Cartagena to social spending.

'At least my government is not going to do.

We shall scrimp on other things, but not aid the elderly 'has Apostille Barreiro.

The mayor explained that the care for the elderly is a social obligation and should be a moral commitment to the administration, although this type of work is one of those municipalities that theoretically should not do it or are within its competence or receive funds perform them.

'But years ago, the City of Cartagena decided to work with you in this field and I think it went wrong, because we had the rule of preparing our programs and our offers listening to you. "

In this sense Barreiro recalled that result from this came the decision to create a home help service, which this year will expand to 100 people over more.

Also launched the program in podiatry, which will extend to all clubs in the municipality.

The mayor also announced other enhancements to older people in politics to serve in times of crisis to the most needy sectors of society, as the agreement to facilitate older people can go to the movies one day a week for 10 cents.
