The pandemic causes poverty to become structural in the province.

. In these difficult years, when the covid-19 pandemic has been a major issue, humanitarian aid has been more important than ever. This is especially true in Almeria where the risk of exclusion is higher than the national average. It is becoming increasingly clear that poverty is a serious problem in our society and is hard to overcome, based on the voluntary work of non profit organizations.

Caritas Diocesana de Almeria presented yesterday its report for 2021. The management team of the entity in Almeria wants to highlight the "enormous need, of all types, which supports a very significant number of our brothers" under the slogan "We are what you give, we love".

According to Caritas data, the rise in the number of people who use the services they offer, which was higher during the worst moments of the pandemic has not returned to pre-health crisis levels. According to the 2021 annual reports, 3,872 people were in vulnerable circumstances in the province. More than 12,000 neighbours also received this assistance.

One in three Caritas recipients are women, and over 60% are immigrants. However, the most common profile of people who received support from this entity is Almeria residents between 24 and 44 (almost half), compared to 10% of those over 64 or 6% for minors. twenty.

The circumstances described in the previous report were essentially repeated for the years 2019-2020, when the social harm caused by the covid crisis was obvious. Caritas assisted 6,094 Almeria residents in those two years when covid was at its peak. This represented an increase of 134% compared to the previous years.

With the data available, it is clear that the 2021 number of beneficiaries is very close to the total of the two previous years. This confirms the directive of Almerian diocesan entity regarding the consolidation of poverty.

The same document that Caritas provided about the economic resources Caritas had in Almeria states that there were contributions (631), donations (383 persons), civil collaborating private institution (41) and private institutions that collaborate with the church (25) and grants such as extraordinary assistance from the Junta de Andalucia, State Lotteries and Gambling, State Lotteries and Labour, the Almeria Provincial Council, Huercal City Council and Viator, European Social Fund, Inditex, CaixaBank, Santander, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaB, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, Caixa, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, Caixabank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, CaixaBank, Santander This resulted in a total of 1,631,647.96 euro.

"From Caritas, we thank everyone in the human team that, as a person or group, parish, or team, shared a dream and made possible the path to fraternity in common. They make possible a community that dreams", they said from Caritas during the presentation of last year's provincial data.

In addition to its solidarity work with the people of the province, the NGO also takes part in many other important actions. They are currently involved in crucial initiatives to assist those who were affected by the Russian invasion in Ukraine. The results will be published in the next report.

However, in 2021, while the pandemic was still in full swing, the eruption at La Palma was the most significant non-provincial cause for which Caritas Diocesana of Almeria was involved. The annual report states that almost 19,000 euros was collected from Almeria for this purpose to help with the tragedy.
