Loulé’s municipal library is holding a story-telling session followed by present-giving on December 16 and 17 for local disadvantaged children as part of the council’s charitable Christmas initiative Natal Solidário.
Around 100 children between the ages of two and 10 have been selected by the Câmara’s social action, health and family department to receive gifts.
The library will also give books to the children who are present on the storytelling days.
This initiative is a way for different council departments to actively work together to fight against poverty and for the education of children.
According to a statement from Loulé Câmara, this project is aimed at “creating a different Christmas, with moments of joy, for these children with financial difficulties and awaken a general sense of charitable spirit and civic duty in working together to help those most disadvantaged”.
