Raising Awareness and Funds for Debra

on 31 March, 2014

 

The second Spanish Irish Business Network St Patricks Day Charity Ball took place on Friday 14th March in Madrid. Aimed at raising awareness about Butterfly Children and raising much needed funds to continue supporting families living with EB (Epidermolysis bullosa), the event for which Dawn Meats was a contributor raised an incredible €30,000 for Debra Ireland and Debra Spain.

Established in 1988 by three families living with EB, Debra is a family and patient led organization that ensures patients get the very best in support and medical care. DEBRA Ireland receives no guaranteed State funding and so fundraising and donations is vital to allow Debra to continue to support patients in dealing with the many challenges of EB as well as providing funding for vital research.

The money raised will be split evenly between Debra Ireland and Debra Spain, half will go directly towards payment of an on the road nurse to help Irelands “butterfly children” to change their bandages, while the other half will go towards the Debra respite home in Marbella.
