SILVES-BASED charity Castelo de Sonhos has organised a soup kitchen to promote awareness of the international day for the eradication of poverty.

Tonight (Friday) at the Instituto Piaget in Silves there will be a series of debates and conferences followed by the distribution of soup to members of the community as a gesture of sharing among the community.

Castelo de Sonhos believes that it is essential to involve the entire community when attempting to tackle poverty and hopes the symbolic gesture of the sharing of soup will provoke citizens to discuss the issue.
