Orgs helping foreigners in trouble?Anybody knows of any organisation that helps travellers in trouble in Barcelona? All I have found is www.callforhelp.es but it does not look very professional. Any idea?

3Thanks. Forgot to say it is for a TV programme we want to shoot about orgs helping tourists who have been mugged or robbed or got into trouble in Barcelona. Apparently there are a few but cannot find them.

5I don't know of any, standard procedure is to go to the police station, fill in the multi-language tickbox form, and take a copy for your travel insurance company.
By the way, if that call for help website is going to get an 807 number then it seems that all they're going to do is relieve tourists of their euro coins in phone boxes. That's if they've got any left after being robbed.
