Andy’s new life

Andreas Boy is 40 years old and came to Spain from Hamburg hitchhiking. In December 2020 Beatriz met him on the street in Vilanova i la Geltrú and offered him food. He told him that all he needed was to enter a detox center to give up alcohol. First it was Beatriz and she was joined by Aina, Ana, Andrea and Raquel. Afterwards, many other people showed great interest in getting Andy out of his situation. In addition to living on the streets and with serious alcohol addiction problems, Andy was seriously ill, diagnosed with Wernicke’s encephalopathy and a brain tumor. However, as much as they struggled to find a place for him, it was not possible. The administration never gave him the opportunity to enter a suitable center for his situation. Social services offered her a weekly shower in a hostel and the girls also paid her a hostel for a few days. With the help of several volunteers, they managed to get Andy off the street and get him to give up alcohol. Finally Andy decided to go back to Germany a month ago and is now living there with his mother.
