TIBA in the community
In addition to our association with The Lions, TIBA opted for sponsoring EMAUS orphanage in Elche which has been in existence for thirty two years and is a legally registered charity in Spain.
EMAUS looks after children from all nationalities and, at the moment, the charity has one hundred and forty children in care, from newborn babies to young adults of eighteen years old. The children are looked after in different houses in the Altea and Elche areas and these children are at the lowest level of the Spanish Social services.
EMAUS strives to provide them with everything from food, clothes, shoes, schooling etc. but more importantly these abandoned children are given love and the dignity that every child deserves in life and TIBA is going all out this year to provide the youngsters with some of the things they need.
The charity also has a small house which is used as a women’s refuge where victims of domestic violence are helped and encouraged to move on to a new life. The charity works in conjunction with the Social Services here in Spain.
