Sorry that this needs printing, but I am cold, hungry and very disappointed with the people around me.
Ten days ago my car broke down. It has been at the garage I bought it from, but is not repaired as yet. Since then, down came the rain. I was flooded badly – carpets, beds, washing machine, fridge and much more, but worse of all, my generator and batteries that keep my solar system going (panels ok), so am without light or TV.
I am aged 75 and live alone on the mountain overlooking Muro and Cocentaina. I have a serious heart problem, therefore cannot walk more than 20 yards and rely on my car.
A good neighbour has helped me, but she is now ill, therefore that is why me and my cats are hungry.
As I am from Wales I know that people, even strangers, will help people who are in my situation, but I am sadly disappointed with the community in Spain.
I have helped people in the past and put on various events to finance those in need. I cannot even get my doctor here as she could refer me to Social Services.
So in desperation I have written to Costa Blanca News, which I have bought and relied on for the 25 years I have lived here.
