In 2012 ALG’s sister charity in Portugal directly sponsored 833 children and their families! The Sponsorship finances school enrolment fees, school material, uniforms and the monthly Basic Supplies Basket.
The monthly Basic Supplies Basket, per family, is composed of 10kg of rice, 3kg of sugar, 2kg of peanuts, 1 litre of oil, 6 pieces of soap, 2kgs of beans, 250g of tea, 1 can of corn, 1 kg of salt and one chicken.
The families who receive this support vary between 5 to 10 people per household, and 2 children per family receive sponsorship. Usually, the families include children who have lost at least one of the parents.
