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.

Fundraiser for Relleu Children's Home

On 27th September 2014 we held a very successful fund raising event in aid of the Children's Home at Relleu. Jean worked her socks off and produced and wonderful fun filled, entertaining afternoon at the Peppermill and all agreed it was well worth the 8 euros paid! This, plus the promise of another fundraiser in Benidorm has enabled up to pay some essential bills at the Children's home at Relleu.

An emotional farewell to our Ex President!

Last Thursday 16th October, we bid an emotional farewell to our previous long standing President of HELP Benidorm, Jan Elders. Sadly due to her husband, Kevin, having health problems, they have decided to relocate to the UK. Both Jan and Kevin have done a tremendous amount of work for HELP, and have helped shape it into the amazing organisation it is today. Without the energy and enthusiasm of people like Jan and Kevin, organisations such as HELP would not be able to exist. We all wish them well in their new life in the UK - they will be sorely missed!

Relleu Fundraiser Saturday 27th September & Charity Fair at El Cisne 28th September

We look forward now to Jean's Relleu Fundraiser at the Peppermill on Saturday, 1:00pm. She has lots of entertainers booked with a finishing time of 6:00pm - or when the last person falls over! I'm sure that tickets are still available, at €8. We bought ours from Jean but the Peppermill has lots to sell yet!!
It will be a busy weekend with the Charity Fair at El Cisne on Sunday. It will be opened by the Mayor, of Benidorm and the Vice-consul, at 12noon.
HELP International Benidorm will be manning a table, hopefully groaning with anti-weight loss goodies, on the day.
