In late 2017 MABS Cancer Support Group was granted Foundation status by the Spanish
Authorities, this is a great achievement and its members are all exceptionally proud of this.
The groups is now known as MABS Cancer Support Fundacíon CIF – G54982681.
A spokesperson for MABS told the Costa Blanca People, “Becoming a Foundation means we
are able to grow and further expand our regular services; undertake new ventures and
explore new opportunities. So we can now proudly announce that MABS Cancer Support
Fundacíon (Costa Calida) have been able to purchase a property which will soon be
converted into our first Respite Care Centre.”
Situated on Camposol, the Centre is being funded jointly by MABS groups in San Javier;
Calasparra and Mazarron. Donations and support from members of the public have made
this possible and MABS asked the Costa Blanca People to extend its thanks to each and
every one of our readers who has donated to or purchased from the group’s Charity Shops
and Markets.
The Centre will support cancer patients from all corners of the Costa Calida area – La
Manga, San Javier, Los Alcazares, Totana, Alhama de Murcia, Puerto de Mazarron,
Mazarron, Calasparra, Pinoso and anywhere in between irrespective of their nationality or
age.
MABS have made great progress so far but there is a lot of work to do before the centre
open and the Foundation still needs some help in various areas:
MABS told us…
 We need help to make the Gardens pleasant including a patio area so our residents
can enjoy the fresh air
 We need help to Paint and Decorate the inside and outside of the property when
the builders have finished.
 We need A/C units for each room – four would be ideal
 We need showers, tiles, WCs and basins for our soon to be created en-suites
 We need bed linens and towels
 We need curtains and blinds
 We need Internet connection and IPTV so our residents can enjoy their favourite TV
programmes
