In the Chamberi district in Madrid, more than 70 people have joined the Red de Cuidados (Care Network).
“It was initiated by some young people in the neighborhood,” says Domingo, who is in charge of coordinating the requests received over the phone. “But right now there is a volunteer group in almost every district in Madrid. People are participating very actively.” Other cities in Spain are doing likewise and groups have been formed across the country.
“I called to ask if they could bring me home a sore throat remedy and they told me that some people in the neighborhood were offering to help,” said Arance, who lives on her own and whose family is too far away to travel to help her under the current restrictions on movement.
