FOOD PROGRAM

FOOD PROGRAM

We occasionally receive requests from families for food support, and we strive to assist whenever possible. Unfortunately, this need persists year after year. If we can prevent a child from working and instead encourage them to join sports and chess clubs, it brings us great relief.

To address this, we organize food and hygiene packages for the most impoverished families. We primarily distribute these upon request, for occasions like Christmas, children’s birthdays, and whenever we become aware of families in dire need. After all, what would a birthday be without a proper cake? Bringing a smile to a child’s face on such an important day fills us with joy.

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE?

When you’re in São Tomé, we can take you to a local supermarket, and based on your budget, we’ll collaborate to create one or several food and hygiene packages. These will then be distributed to the neediest families.

WHAT TO DONATE?

Dry and canned foods are highly appreciated as they can be easily stored. We also accept fresh food provided the beneficiaries can store it properly.

The most needed items include:

  • – Rice, pasta, beans
  • – Canned tuna, dry meat, chorizo
  • – Wheat, cornmeal, sugar, eggs
  • – Fresh local products (palm oil, salted fish, etc.)
