CLC World making life easier for Adeje seniors


Recently the CLC World Foundation oversaw the arrival of the delivery of new furniture to the Adeje home for seniors, a centre which has 38 users – 18 permanent residents and 20 who use the installation as a day centre. The cost of the donation was in the region of €3,350.

Courtesy of the foundation the centre now has 5 new reclining chairs, 2 wheelchairs, 4 new mattresses specifically designed to avoid bedsores and two chairs for the bath/shower, all of which are now being used by the residents of this centre on a daily basis.

For the councillors of social welfare and diversity, and seniors, Isabel Fernández Gonzáles and Cristina Fuente Carballo, respectively “this initiative is a welcome demonstration of the willingness of our society to help those of advanced years. We are caring for 38 people in the centre, with activities that help enforce cognitive capacity while also creating a welcome, open and warm atmosphere where our residents know their needs will be attended to, with, of course, all the necessary hygienic and sanitary guarantees”:

Víctor García Díaz and Miriam Palazón, representatives of the Foundation, said “our objective is to offer the maximum amount of assistance we can to groups and collectives in need of help. Over many years the foundation has developed a social compromise with the people in the regions we work in and we are always delighted to work with different bodies to overcome social obstacles where and when we can”.

The CLC World Foundation, previously known as the Smile/Sonrisa foundation, was formed in 1999 with the aim of offering aid to those in need, in particular in the Costa del Sol and Tenerife, thanks to the donations and contributions made by CLC World clients, associations and workers.

Fundación CLC World donate two dryers to Adeje Seniors’ residence

Earlier this week representatives of the CLC World Foundation Miriam Palazon, Richard Wafer and Leonie Lindwedel visted the Adeje Senior Citizens home with Adeje mayor Jose Miguel Rodriguez Fraga and the Adeje councillor for senior citizens Cristina Carballo. They were there to see the working of the two new clothes dryers the foundation has just donated to the home.

During their visit they were shown around the centre by director Carina Negrin Aguilar, meeting many of the residents in the well shaded patio, before seeing the dining area, the bedrooms, and large living room and of course the laundry area where both clothes dryers are already in use.

Miriam told the mayor that the Foundation were delighted to be able to “do their bit to help people who might need it” and were eager to participate in other donations in the borough in the coming months. They have already helped the Asociación San Juan and are finalising their contribution to this year’s Walk for Life. The CLC World foundation is a non-profit institution working to improve the lives of those in need, with funds raised from donations and grants from associations, and clients and employees of CLC World. They have been working in Costa del Sol and Tenerife.

Jose Miguel Rodriguez Fraga welcomed this donation and expressed his interest in the work of the CLC World Foundation. He said their aims were very much in parallel with the aims of the council, putting people first. The mayor thanked the Foundation for their altruism, adding that in Adeje they were always aware that there were people in need, people who were suffering “and that’s where we step in – perhaps it’s the elderly, or families who need extra help with school materials. This is where we work in solidarity, as we know that during our lives no one is without needs”.

CLC World Resort Director Miriam Palazon said “we are here to do our bit and open to other requests to assist where we can”. She said the foundation is working with many different associations and organisation here in Tenerife and in the Spanish peninsula to improve the lives of those in need. “We stand ready to listen, ready to help”, Palazon told the Adeje mayor, “our intention is to bring the work of the foundation to Adeje”.
