” I’m in La Línea looking for work. I came nine years ago for love, I’ve been coming and going because I used to live in Chipiona and now I’ve settled here. I’m living on the street because I have no other choice,” he confesses.
“I wanted to thank everyone who is helping me here , those who have contributed a euro, or two euros. Right now I have a place to stay, I have my house and I pay the rent with what I get from the street. I don’t spend it on drugs or alcohol, only on my rent and I invite everyone to check it out,” he says.
The news generated a great impact, all the press echoed it and Joaquín Prat’s family has issued a statement after accusing her of not helping Federico.
