Due to the financial crisis the Spanish Central Government withdrew all financial support to the Home. The Fundacion Arcos de Castillos provides funding for the day-to-day running of the Home such at utilities and staff wages, but the ECCH Charity provides for all the extra needs of the children such as clothing, school books, after school activities, toiletries, birthday and Christmas presents and so much more. The Charity is managed entirely from unpaid volunteers who are devoted to the Home and Children. Our funding makes a meaningful difference. It is more important than ever before, that with your help, we keep on raising the funds to enable our children to continue to have a safe, happy, stable life at Elche Children’s Care Home.
