Dr. Pedro Guillén Trust
This institution was established in 2011 with the aim of doctors helping people not simply to heal but also to research so that better solutions are available in the future.
Clínica CEMTRO supports this kind of initiative carried out by its own staff both in its logistics and in the donation of necessary material and equipment.

Clínica CEMTRO constantly supports institutions such as Cáritas, Red Cross Spain and Aldeas Infantiles (for children), by offering the building entrance so they can show and request visitors’ help and thus find funding.
