Galp donates around two tons of food to the SOS Children's Village

Galp doa cerca de duas toneladas de alimentos à Aldeia de Crianças SOS

About two tons of various basic food products were collected by Galp volunteers and donated to the SOS Children's Village in Maputo city.

The action, which materializes Galp employees' commitment to the community, follows the third edition of the initiative "Every step counts", which aims to convert into meals any kilometer traveled by Galp employees registered through an application.

With the delivery of these products, Galp intends to support the access to quality food, nutritious and essential to the healthy development of the children of Aldeias SOS.

Promoting the well-being of the communities where we operate is very important to us, and more and more Galp employees are giving part of their working time to voluntarily contribute to a better society," said Paulo Varela, CEO of Galp Mozambique.

The delivery of the donations was accompanied by a visit by Galp employees to the facilities of SOS Children's Villages, in order to learn about the work and day-to-day life of the host home. On site, Galp members also had the opportunity to socialize with children and ?mothers? of the family homes.

We are very pleased with Galp's contribution. This food will help in the family management of each house where they had the opportunity to visit today. For us, the most important thing is the well-being of children that passes in the first place by healthy food and quality education provided? shared the National Director of Programs of Aldeias SOS, Ailton Muchave.

The corporate social responsibility action is also replicated in other countries where Galp operates. In Mozambique, the initiative has already taken nearly four tons of food products and other goods to hundreds of people affected by hunger and food insecurity.

In 2021, the project ?Todos os Passos Contam? in partnership with Associação Filadélfia, through its Rice, Beans and Fish program, guaranteed more than two tons of basic food among other products for the distribution of one thousand daily meals for orphaned children in nine points in Sofala province.

And, in 2022, in a joint action between Galp and the Makobo Platform, through the Solidarity Heart Mission program, almost two tons of food and sundry products were donated for coinfection of the meals served to the victims displaced by the insurgency in Cabo Delgado.
