Thanks to Kara Jaye Caradas of The Boardwalk many of us have become aware of the plight of the orphan in Malaga. If it wasn’t for Kara we would probably all still be ignorant to this fact but now that we know we too can possibly be of help.
Fortunately there are facilities for parentless and vulnerable kids but there is the big and worrying issue of what happens to the children once they come of age?
Alone in a big city without family can be intimidating and not the best way to start out life. This is why we hope to open our unique Marbella arms to welcome these young teens amongst us.
So many in the international community live here without families that we create our own circle of ‘family friends’ with whom we share our lives and watch over, as if they were our own flesh and blood. We can easily empathise with these youngsters and hopefully step up to the challenge of thinking of ways to help these kids create and establish their own place in our society and fulfill their own dreams.
By offering jobs and opportunities to these youngsters they will be getting the chance to learn about the world within our 137 nationalities and the chance to learn languages, but above all feel that they belong.
This is just one of the topics being discussed at this year’s 3rd United Nationalities of Marbella Summit on 24th April 2018 between 10am – 2pm. Entrance is free so please join us for this 100% interactive opportunity for our multicultural brains to get together and help resolve the little things that make a big difference .
