The hospital group is collaborating for the second year on the project whose aim is to collect sports shoes for children and youths


Arrecife, March 2019:- For the second year, Hospiten Lanzarote is joining the ‘Zapatillas Solidarias’ campaign, launched by the Lanzarote Island Government with the collaboration of the Hermanos Martinez Foundation. With its 6th edition, the initiative is consolidated as a project focusing on recycling and intercommunity cooperation connecting people on the island of Lanzarote with vulnerable children and youths taking part in the basketball and football campus in Malabo and Bata in Equatorial Guinea.

The Hospiten Group will help collect sports shoes for the most vulnerable children and youths from villages in Equatorial Guinea on the campus, thus supporting sport as a model of social inclusion and of a healthy lifestyle in a safe environment.

Thanks to the cooperation on the island, a total of 1,955 youngsters in Equatorial Guinea at risk of social exclusion received help in the previous edition and were able to do sport wearing suitable footwear.

The organizers want to remind the public that shoes can be donated until March 25 at more than 35 collection points around the island of Lanzarote, as well as at Hospiten Lanzarote, schools, sports centers and municipal sports centers.

As part of the company’s corporate social responsibility policy, Hospiten wants to be part of this new edition of the campaign supporting the inclusion of less fortunate sectors of society and, at the same time, consolidating the company’s endorsement of sport as a factor in a healthy lifestyle.

The Hospiten Group is an international healthcare network committed to providing services of the highest quality, with 50 years of experience, which has twenty private medical-hospital centers in Spain, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Jamaica and Panama, and more than one hundred ambulatory medical centers, own and associated under the Clinic Assist brand. The group is chaired by Dr. Pedro Luis Cobiella and attends more than 1,700,000 patients from around the world every year, and employs more than 5,000 people.
