To support our local community through the current crisis we have some initiatives underway. These include the delivery of 60,000 medical gloves to Faro Hospital (in liaison with other Rotary Clubs across the Algarve); continued contributions to local food banks; supporting local frontline health workers with personal items such a soap, bottled water, energy bars etc. for use whilst on duty, and we are actively looking at other ways to support the Estoi community and students of Estoi School who may be impacted by the crisis.
As we are currently unable to hold any fundraising events we are appealing for donations specifically to support our Coronavirus efforts. Follow this link to a donation form: https://rotaryestoipalace.org/payments/coronavirus.
