Charity on Ibiza

Information on the work of charity associations and how you might be able to help and support them in their work.

Ibiza is much more than a party island – it's an island full of people who care. They care about the aged, the infirm, children and animals and they do this by supporting local charities set up by local people.


Although Ibiza's residents support local charities through fundraising and donations, further help is always welcome and is often needed for these remarkable caring concerns to continue.

The volunteers and organizers work tirelessly, on a daily basis, to help ease pain and suffering, asking only that that can make a difference to those in their care.

To get more of an insight on the work they do please take a look at their web sites, through the links below.

Should you feel the urge to help them to help others your donation will be gratefully received.
