Welcome to Help International Benidorm

Help International Benidorm is a registered charitable organisation, with no political or religious affiliations, run by volunteers to provide help to residents and visitors in emergencies and times of need:

  • We assist patients in hospital and pay regular visits to the housebound
  • We assist in emergencies, providing advice when people do not know where to turn.
  • We have several interpreters to assist people at medical appointments, or handling emergencies requiring the Spanish language.
  • We loan medical equipment- wheelchairs etc.- for short term use without charge.
  • HELP maintains a close relationship with the British Consulate in Alicante and with other charitable organisations.
  • Volunteer teachers provide free Spanish language lessons for HELP members. (A donation is required)
  • We organise our own social events and encourage house-bound members to participate. We raise funds which are used to assist other charities that serve the Costa Blanca community and we work as volunteers to serve that community.

Come and join us on a Thursday morning about 10.30 am at the José Llorca Linares Social Centre, Benidorm - see 'Our Location' for directions.

Fund raising and donations - and how they are used

We continue to received donations from various sources including our friends at the Heroes Bar, the Boutique, and of course it is surprising how much we collect from our 'tiddlers' jars in various venues. And we are pleased to announce that we have donated €1,000 to MABS Cancer support group for the purchase of a new van. It is hoped that all the associations that have contributed towards it will have their names signwritten on the sides of the van.

Language Weekends

We have been contacted by an organisation that runs weekend courses for Spaniards to learn English 'by immersion'. They are looking for people who are happy to talk 100% in English to Spanish students. The setting is the beautiful Sierra del Segura in the province of Albacete. If you are interested in getting involved, contact our President, Bill on 607 387 040 for more details.
