Regional Government of Madrid sends more than 6,800 drawings and cards from children of Madrid in support of children on island of La Palma
The Regional Government of Madrid has sent 6,816 drawings and cards collected by Metro de Madrid within the framework of the campaign to raise awareness set in motion by the underground so that the children of Madrid could show their support and affection for the children affected by the volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma. The Regional Councillor for Transport and Infrastructure, David Pérez, announced that all the drawings and cards received have been sent on to the Island Council, which will also be projected on a giant screen in Gran Vía underground station.
Most of these works come from 109 schools in 39 municipalities of Madrid, although they have also been received from private individuals and from other points of Spain, as in the case of the Reina Sofía de Ubrique junior school in Cadiz, and the A Castellana de Aranga secondary school in A Coruña.
This action comes on top of the action carried out by Metro de Madrid in collaboration with the Red Cross since the start of the volcanic eruption back in September until 17 November, when it made 60 digital advertising screen available to the humanitarian institution distributed in several of the 302 stations on the underground to encourage its users to make donations to those affected.
