Free vacations for cancer sufferers from the Atlantic Holiday Hotel

For the third year in a row the Atlantic Holiday Hotel in Callao Salvaje are opening their doors to people from Adeje with cancer, and their families.  This week they donated 12 all-inclusive holidays to people who are currently undergoing oncological treatment, and who live in Adeje.

Councillor Amada Trujillo Bencomo, who has been in charge of the department of health promotion in the borough, underlined the on-going work of the hotel in this regard, and added, “initiatives such as this one show that one of the successes of our tourism sector is that people come first, thanks to businesses such as this and business people such as Charlotte Abildtrup, director of the hotel, who have shown their total commitment to the project.

Carlotte said, “We want to help these people and their families, giving them a week where they can rest and escape from the stress their cancer is causing.  We know that these are fighters and that day after day they are overcoming so many difficulties, which is why we are delighted to be able to welcome 12 families into our hotel during the summer months, offering them a week where they can relax and enjoy the best we have to offer”.

The Atlantic Holiday Hotel has large holiday apartments, salt and fresh water pools, playgrounds, tennis courts, a park, a gym, restaurants, and a first class service.

Kindness without conditions

Room service for cancer families!

The Hotel Atlantic Holiday Centre in Callao Salvaje has donated 10 week-long holidays to the local branch of the Spanish Cancer Association and the Adeje council to give to families in the region who have someone suffering from cancer.

The initiative was welcomed by Adeje health councillor Amada Trujillo Bencomo as “very positive, as those who are affected by cancer are also under a huge amount of stress during their palliative care. Now they can use this week to relax, enjoy some leisure time with their family, and be looked after by the hotel staff. This will contribute to their recuperation, and the staff in the holiday complex will be delighted to welcome them”.

Hotel director Charlotte Abildtrup said “we want to help these people and their families relax a little and escape from some of the stress they are experiencing as a result of their cancer. We know they are fighters and that they are facing difficulties on a daily basis. That’s why we want to offer ten families the chance to enjoy what the hotel has to offer this summer, a week where they can enjoy some quiet time with us”.

Councillor Trujillo Bencomo added, “this gesture from the heart by people such as Charlotte do show that there is kindness without conditions, without barriers, people who only want to help”.
