Tavira offers Christmas hampers to 900 families

Because of the pandemic, it was necessary to reinforce the support traditionally given at this time

The Câmara de Tavira will offer Christmas hampers to 900 economically vulnerable families from the six parishes in the county who are facing financial difficulties, a measure that is already traditional, but which this year was reinforced.

According to the municipality, due to the pandemic, it was necessary to increase "the protection of the most susceptible groups in the Tavirense community, minimizing social inequalities and guaranteeing essential comfort for a happier Christmas."

"This action is of great relevance for the most disadvantaged and comes within the scope of the Municipality's strategy to alleviate socio-economic differences and immediate shortages of essential goods for individuals and families", concluded the Chamber of Tavira.
