«We feel happy and fulfilled to be able to give back to society the trust it places in us! This ambulance is an offer from the team of employees at Água Monchique and from all Monchique Lovers, who believe in our product daily and share our way of being and the values we advocate as a company", he said.
The responsible for Água Monchique also left a special thanks to all the Firefighters for the spirit of mission and for the courage with which they carry out their duties, in defense of the health and well-being of the populations.
