Alvor-based children’s home Lar de Crianças Bom Samaritano, which cares for 36 children aged three to 18, has launched an appeal for donations to fund summer camps for all of the children.
“The summer break is very long and these children have far too much free time, therefore, every year we try to make sure that they have summer programmes,” said the headmistress, Margarida Cardoso.
She added: “Children absolutely love the summer camps as these offer them an opportunity to know other realities and make new friends.”
The cost of a summer camp, including full board and activities, is between 35 euros and 90 euros per child.
If you would like to help, please send your donation by cheque, made payable to Lar de Crianças Bom Samaritano, to Sítio da Má Partilha, Estrada de Alvor, Apartado 250, 8501-911, Portimão.
To receive a receipt, which can be used for fiscal benefits, please also send your name and address.
For more information or to make an appointment to visit the home, please telephone 282 459 201.
