Charity aids more Spanish than Immigrant families

Thu 22th Aug 2013
Charity aids more Spanish than Immigrant families

The 12-Monthly report from the Almeria branch of Christian Charity, Caritas, has revealed how food aid handed out to Spanish families last year outnumbered those to immigrant families - 4,652 compared to 3,844.

Details of the 38-page report were published by the Fides news agency and showed that together, Spanish and immigrant families received a combined total of in excess of 1 million kilos in food aid in 2012.

However, things may be about to slowly changed following the Bank of Spain's estimation that the economy shrunk by 'just' 0.1% in Q2 of 2013 - the slowest quarterly contraction in more than 2 years.

However, the ongoing financial crisis has resulted in record levels of unemployment and although the number of registered jobless has fallen in the last 5 months, the unemployment rate is expected to remain above 25% for the next 5 years.

A total of 62,108 families and 31,485 individuals turned to Caritas for assistance last year, mainly requesting food, clothing, medicine and child support.
