The City Council has awarded a grant of 15,000 euros to the Asociación Solidaria de Integración Social (ASIS), an NGO that has been helping people in precarious and / or socially excluded situations for almost two decades. In these almost 20 years, it has worked with more than 6,000 users and, according to the mayor, Víctor Navas, “it is always on the front line helping the poorest and most needy people, both with registered neighbors and with people who lack documentation for their immigrant status, helping to fill a void that administrations do not have the capacity to address and offering help to those of us who are not there ”.
This association protects, through its Advisory 2021 program, people who have difficulties in processing their documentation, requesting a registration or requesting residency. In addition, it also provides computer classes, providing the necessary computers for users to carry out active job searches, and supports families by caring for their children while parents work or seek employment.
The mayor has announced that, in addition to this aid,ASIS will receive another grant linked to the bridge housing project. “It is a comprehensive program that covers many situations, such as housing, since many people have lost their homes due to the crisis caused by the pandemic,” said the Councilor for Social Welfare, Alicia Laddaga.
For his part, the ASIS technician, Eduardo Montoro, highlighted that “thanks to the subsidy we obtain a coverage that allows us to give continuity to this program, much needed after a year of pandemic in which we have had to dedicate 100% of our resources to feeding our users ”And has invited anyone in need to stop by the association’s headquarters on the Paseo del Generalife.
