ALMERÍA (SPAIN)

Music is the constant in the Los Almendros neighborhood, on the outskirts of Almería. The music, which runs through the veins of the gypsy ethnic group.

Our mission is from the neighborhood: one of them. The house is open, without hours, because we want the welcome to be a distinctive feature. Visits to families, knowing the situation of each family. Accompanying them in their problems, in the pain of the disease. Visits in jail, to be a bridge of communication with the families, and bridges of relief and support with the prisoners.

We work together with Social Services and Caritas Diocesana.

And, of course! Being at the gates of the Mediterranean, the proximity to the migrants who have crossed it, collaborating with the Red Cross.

Simplicity, everyday life, welcome, support … social evangelization.
