They say:

My name is Isabel Venegas Albano. For the past few years I have volunteered on a regular basis as a host and collaborator at the parochial shelter in Fuenterroble de Salvatierra (Salamanca), along the Vía de la Plata, directed by Padre Blas. This shelter is supported exclusively by the passing pilgrims’ donations on their way to Santiago.

Three days before the lockdown, I returned home from Fuenterroble and am therefore aware of the current needs of the shelter, which have been accentuated from the recent lack of donations.
The existing issues are:

- The repair and update of the solar energy water heating system which was interrupted due to lack of funds,
- The adaptation of the facilities to the new coronavirus regulations,
- Maintenance of the shelter, foster home, and general operating expenses,
- The Hungarian House, an expansion of the shelter Padre Blas was working on also been postponed.

The intention of this crowdfunding is to give back to the Camino some of the many and good things it has always given us, as well as to relieve Padre Blas’ economic pressure, who has continued to provide shelter during the entire lockdown to pilgrims and others in need. The proposed amount covers only part of the entire expenses needed, but it would be of big help in order to continue in operation.

Those of us who are pilgrims know this is a very special place, that as soon as you walk through the door you feel at home and breathe a different air. It is a place where nothing is asked of you yet everything is shared with you.

I feel it justifiable that we help Father Blas, so that when the Camino reopens we can once again find him as always, smiling and with open arms.

Many thanks to all of you for your collaboration, in whatever way possible.
