What is FASOCIDE? Who are we?
FASOCIDE, Spanish Federation of Associations of Deafblind People.
FASOCIDE was born from the need of the territorial delegations of ASOCIDE to have a greater autonomy management in their respective regions (Spanish Autonomous Communities).
FASOCIDE began its activity in 2011 when in extraordinary General Assembly, ASOCIDE agrees to be a founding member along with the Association of the Deafblind People of Comunidad Valenciana, the Association of Deafblind People of Euskadi and the Deafblind Association of Catalunya.
