At Simply Shuttles, our chosen charity is¬ DEBRA Espana,¬†which supports those living with¬†the extremely painful¬†genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).
The condition is characterised by extremely fragile skin and recurrent blisters and sores, which are similar¬†to third degree¬†burns. In many countries, the¬†term Butterfly Children is¬†often used to describe¬†younger patients because their¬†skin is as fragile as a butterfly‚Äôs wings.‚ÄĮSometimes, children with the condition are also‚ÄĮdescribed as‚ÄĮCotton Wool Babies.
DEBRA is an international¬†network of charities¬†and the Spanish headquarters is¬†in Marbella. We have¬†an¬†ongoing¬†agreement with the charity to¬†provide transport¬†throughout the¬†year¬†for staff¬†and¬†visitors, as and when they need it. We‚Äôre also committed to fundraising activities to support this worthwhile cause.
