Help people in Ukraine with Specsavers and The Red Cross

Specsavers in Javea are collaborating with the local branch of Red Cross to collect funds for their Ukraine Appeal. They are collecting funds in store and also promoting the online donations to their customers and local community.

The war in Ukraine is causing a humanitarian crisis for millions of people who have fled from the
fighting, or are taking cover from the shelling and bombardment. The Red Cross has mobilised to
provide critical care to those who need it most, but require funds to be able to continue to provide
emergency support both inside Ukraine and in neighbouring countries who are receiving refugees.
Funds are required to procure food, water, first aid, medicines, warm clothes and shelter.

The team at Specsavers Ópticas in Javea wanted to find out how they could best help and contacted
Maica Aranda Vallés at their local branch of the Red Cross. Maica informed them that raising funds
was their top priority and suggested that they collect donations from their customers.

To make it as easy for people to donate to this important cause, they have had a collection tin at their shop since
the 7th of March and are encouraging customers to donate for eye tests and repairs.

Anyone who wants to support the cause is welcome to pop in and make their donation. You can find
Specsavers Ópticas Javea at Avenida Del Pla 125, Edificio Caribe, Local 6. They are located just off the
Carretera Cabo la Nao-Pla, near Servicolor.

Donations can also be made on the Red Cross website, via Bizum and by
