    Carmen Sanchez Simon (R) gets emotional as she participates with her two mentally disabled brothers in a march in Puertollano, central Spain, to protest the funding problems at Fuente Agria Foundation, which cares for 300 mentally disabled people in several facilities, February 2, 2012. Social service providers across the country are in limbo as they wait for the central government to detail austerity measures in a 2012 budget to be presented on March 30. As a consequence, the safety net for the most vulnerable Spaniards, including the disabled and infirm, the aged, the addicted, the homeless and the abused, is starting to fray.
