Fraternal project in Lisbon
In Lisbon a dual project to promote fraternity with volunteer work between generations.
Project for children. Outskirts of Lisbon: you can only imagine what happens in those neighborhoods that nobody talks about. Two sisters and a brother Comboni Missionaries began to give support to some children, who mostly belong to migrant families of Camarate with educational program. "Through some contacts we found that these missionaries need the help of young volunteers and so we put our energies in this project" they tell us.
Project adults and seniors. Accompanying adults and older people living alone or residing in nursing homes. The volunteers visit them every 15 days in teams of 2 or 3 people: recreational activities ( games or to sing with them) or respond to the concrete needs of each person (to accompany the Mass, organize medications or the house).
For both projects and based on the number of registered volunteers it's established teams for a period of 3 months.
