A new local classified ads website with an international twist.
The gran-canarias.com Website declares it is for the Spanish and foreign language communities that visit and live in all parts of the Canary Islands.
Unique because it has been designed to enable and encourage each language to access and participate in one market where everyone can publish to and read adverts from any tongue.
All of the categories for goods and services appear in English for English visitors, Spanish for the Spanish and in German for the German visitors etc.
Just to make this point one last time, what English visitors publish in English can be read by both Spanish and German visitors and what the Spanish publish and be found and read by both the English and German communities.
As quite a lot of the ads are from the 2+ million local Spanish inhabitants a little flag appears next to each one ready to translate it for you.
The SPANISH HEALTH SYSTEM
A London born man bitten by a dog was told by local health centre doctors to go to the church and beg for money to buy antibiotics because he was not entitled to any free medication.
This site is not only about business and tourism, we front line social injustices too; here's the latest piece of evil government we have discovered here in Gran Canaria.
When someone out of work receives help from the Social Services they receive free medication, sounds good; but there is one big catch that might cost someone their life.
When the limited help the social services give someone assed to be in need expires after a maximum of two years they not only no longer receive any help they also have to pay for their medication.
In reality that means many have to go without antibiotics, even if it was an emergency.
So at the exact same time the state withdraws the basic help many need it also starts charging those same people for medication - sound kind of evil to anyone from Northern Europe
So does the Spanish system rate as the Bastard of Europe!
Yep, pretty much looks that way
