Eleven days of confinement have been completed since the Spanish Government decreed the alarm state to try to stop the expansion of the coronavirus.
It is not the only consequence that the measures adopted on March 14 have brought with it: after the closure of bars and restaurants, many owners have begun to notice economic losses that jeopardize the continuity of their business.
But if something positive can be derived from this pandemic, that is the solidarity that is emerging in all corners of the world. Initiatives such as the most human face of society are born “Adopt a bar”, a campaign that seeks to take care of these premises.
«Put your shoulder down now, raise your elbow later», says their website. “After the quarantine you will have more desire than ever.”

The administrators, who define themselves as people concerned about the future of their shops and bar lovers, decided to launch this solidarity initiative when they began to notice the effects of the state of alarm on their businesses.
How does it work? «Through our solidarity platform you can buy your drinks now and also add your tips-donations so that our bars get ahead as soon as possible “, they explain.
