“We are pleased to announce that from today we are part of that platform of volunteer entities of the Community of Madrid! This is great news and a privilege for our organization. We are very proud to take this important step on our way, and it is planned to implement many collaborations and synergies together with other entities so that all people have the same rights and to improve Spanish society in general!” – says Anna Spezie, coordinator of SCI Madrid.
