THE Red Cross is launching its first ever public appeal for donations to help the growing number Spaniards in need of help because of the country's economic crisis.

Red Cross spokesman Miguel Angel Rodriguez said on Tuesday the agency is looking to round up some 30 million euros ($A38.32 million) over the next two years to help an extra 300,000 people.

The agency helped some two million people in Spain last year, most of who were in need of food or money.
