ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
In more than 30 years it has always been detected that the positive evolution of the association was due to the volunteers who offer their contribution spontaneously and in a professional way. Nevertheless the challenge of this voluntary work is that, being spontaneous, it can’t be always assured and so sometimes can’t guarantee the continuity of the service that should also guarantee its quality.
