THE Butterfly Children Charity shop of Malaga has hosted a party to celebrate its one-year anniversary.
Malaga’s mayor, Francisco de la Torre Prados, was in attendance.
The shop, run by the DEBRA charity of Spain, raises money to benefit ‘butterfly children’, who suffer from the incurable genetic condition epidermolysis bullosa.
The disease causes excruciating blisters and increases victims’ risk of skin cancer, blindness and potentially fatal infection.
Life expectancy is short, and many sufferers die in childhood.
The shop is seeking volunteers in the Malaga area. Potential donors and volunteers are asked to contact 667 363 995 or [email protected]
