Description of the event: 
‘‘Merienda de fallas’’ is a meet-up at the traditional horchata and ice-cream shop ‘’Daniel’’ in Alboraya, between the elderly people that take part in ‘’Amics de la Gent Major’’s accompaniment programs against loneliness, and the volunteers that provide them with affective company.

It will take place on the 7th of March, Thursday, at 4PM at ‘Horchateria Daniel’ at Avda. de L’Orxata,41, Alboraya.

‘’Amics de la Gent Major’’ is a volunteering organization. Its goal is to compensate the loneliness, isolation and the lack of affection that the elderly that live on their own suffer. To achieve this, they set up different actions that include the accompaniment and the volunteer work of many people.

ESN will accompany the elderly during this meet-up.

During 2018 ‘’Amics de la Gent Major’’ attended affectively 837 elderly people that felt lonely with the help of 524 volunteers.
