Project Description

A very special "Angel for a Day" event took place in Portugal last December. The aim of this event was to organise an unforgettable Christmas celebration for the 10 children currently being cared for at the emergency shelter "Ajuda de Berço“. The institution was already supported back in 2015 as part of a great project and campaign (more detailed information can be found athttp://www.lyoness-cff.org/de/projects/portugal-ii/details). This commitment was continued in another "Angel for a Day" campaign initiated by the Lyconet Marketers Lisa Vireilha and Renata Bravo.

The project commenced on December 12th, when the Marketer's children worked together and produced delicious biscuits which they personally handed over to the children at the institution. But the delicious biscuits weren't the only surprise for the children. Thanks to the amazing generosity of the Marketer André Azevedo and his team, much needed aid products, such as two washing machines and medicine could be purchased. Each child also received a voucher for a dental check-up at the "Dental Aesthetic Clinic" as well as tooth brushes and tooth paste. Medicine and powdered milk for the smaller children were kindly made available by the apothecaries "Farmácia Latina" and "Farmácia Martins".

Handing over the biscuits and presents was an incredibly emotional moment. By working together and staying true to our motto of "together we are strong", we have once again been able to achieve something great by helping children in need.

Project Goals

The aim of this project was to organise an unforgettable Christmas celebration for the 40 children currently being cared for at the emergency shelter "Ajuda de Berço“. Biscuits were baked and much needed medical aids were procured and handed over.
