In Torres Vedras, the Community Action Group mobilises the Roma community for a food donation.

Last week in Torres Vedras, 430 essential food products were delivered to the Social Center and Parish of Torres Vedras. 

This donation comes as a result of the collection made within Roma families, on the initiative of the Community Action Group (CAG) of Torres Vedras, in partnership with the Philadelphia Evangelical Church.

The recipient organization was chosen based on the public it targets: children, youth, adults and seniors.

Ms Umbelino, Municipal Councillor responsible for social issues welcomed this initiative as an opportunity to dismantle clichés related notably to the lack of openness of the Roma community.

In Torres Vedras, the CAG having organised the collection is made up of 15 citizens (out of which 5 women).
