The association for people with functional diversity ‘El árbol de los sueños’ (The tree of dreams) presented its activity today in the plenary hall of Redován Town Hall. The Consistory has given its facilities to this organization born in the municipality that aims to provide support and facilitate access to therapies for people with disabilities. At the same time, its members have taken the opportunity to present their solidarity calendar and to inform about all the initiatives they are developing in the municipality.
The president of the association, María Isabel Cartagena, appeared alongside María del Pilar Heredia, secretary, and Javier Andreo, treasurer. “We wanted to make ‘El árbol de los sueños’ officially known and for people to know what we do,” explained Cartagena. For this reason, he thanked “the City Council, its mayoress, Nely Ruiz, and the Department of Social Welfare led by Marisol Ibáñez, for their collaboration and for giving us the opportunity to do so from this press room,” he added.
“The entire proceeds from our activities are destined to defray the costs of materials for our children’s therapies, as we have not yet been able to access any subsidies,” said the president. The association has been active in the municipality for four months, and has a space in the Centro Social de la Tercera Edad de Redován. The solidarity calendar features, by way of presentation, “all those who make up the association, including some of our children and also the therapists and staff who carry out the therapies,” said María del Pilar Heredia. The Redován Local Police officers were also involved, “and we would like to thank them immensely for their collaboration, as our children had some unforgettable moments while the photographs were being taken,” she said. The calendar will cost 5 euros, and those who wish to purchase it can find it in the offices of the association, in the Town Hall, and in various collaborating businesses in the municipality.
In addition to the calendar, ‘El árbol de los sueños’ has various initiatives underway to raise funds, such as charity raffles, the sale of cloth sanitary masks “approved and available in various sizes, with a price of 5 euros,” said its treasurer, Javier Andreo. There has also been a distribution of solidarity piggy banks in the shops of the municipality “so that anyone who can lend a hand, can do so in an easier and closer way, while carrying out their daily shopping,” added Andreo.

For her part, the mayoress of the municipality, Nely Ruiz, congratulated the members of the association for the important work they carry out, “which is nothing more than fighting for these children to have all the opportunities available to them”. Ruiz added that “as the Town Hall, it is our job to help in any way we can with any initiative that benefits all the people of Redovan, as is the case with ‘El árbol de los sueños'”. The councillor hopes that this journey that has just begun will be prolonged and consolidated over the years “because all help is little for people who, due to functional diversity, need to make a greater effort than others in their learning and development processes, and with the work of associations such as ‘El árbol de los sueños’ they achieve this”.
