Governor praises child care

Faro Civil Governor, Carlos Silva Gomes, has praised the work developed by Algarve institutions in supporting children in need.

He praised the commitment and dedication of the professionals caring for these children in the region’s private social solidarity institutions (IPSS).

“The involvement of carers has to be continuous as every day new cases of children who are victims of abuse and negligence are reported,” he said.

Carlos Silva Gomes said public investment in this area should remain a priority in order to ensure the protection of these underprivileged children.
