Why Give Money For These Causes

Charitable Giving

Each year the church gives 10% of the gross euro income to charities selected by the church council. The aim is to support local charities on the island and at least one further afield. This year we are supporting Christian Aid, who support communities in poor countries with medical needs, livelihood projects, emergency aid and much more.

Local Charities in 2023

Happy2Help, Noah’s Ark and the Association of San Juan. We also provide food and essential items to two Orders of Nuns: one in Vilaflor, who distribute the items to poor and needy families and the other, in Santiago del Teide who run a care home for the elderly and also distribute to the poor and needy.

The nuns of Santiago del Teide have a care home for the elderly and also distribute food to the needy.

We have supported them for many years.
