Welcome Refugees Algarve sets up online support database

The Algarve movement designed to welcome refugees and even offer space to families in local homes is setting up a database in English and Portuguese so that anyone interested in helping in any way can outline what they are offering. Accessible via: https://www.facebook.com/Bem-Vindos-Refugiados-Algarve-854225891339531/timeline/ the info will then be passed on to the Red Cross and CPR (national commission for protection of refugees).

Meantime, there are various collection points throughout the region for people to drop off clothing and other items (see: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=860938964001557&id=854225891339531&pnref=story)
