SOS Children’s Villages is a charity project that helps children worldwide. These small families all around the world end up being the biggest family and all they aim for is to protect children that are living in vulnerable environments. They are making a difference for them by giving them a home and a happy place where they can be in a supportive setting. So we want to challenge you to help them! Three days to change these children’s lives. You in? During the 8th AIMS Meeting we are challenging you to bring what you can from the list below:
- Food items that won’t spoil (olive oil, rice, pasta, etc.)
- Hygiene products and home products (clothes and ware detergent, bleach, bathroom detergent, etc.)
- Hygiene products like tooth paste, shampoo, shower gel and deodorants, etc.)
Remember: 3 days. Let’s make history.
The campaign starts on the 8th of March and will end on the last day of the congress. We will be collecting goods in AEFML on the first two days and during the congress, at the SIM Auditorium. If you are not attending AIMS Meeting but want to help, we are counting on you too!
A day of helping out
During 8th AIMS Meeting, you’ll also have the chance to work at a Lisbon area volunteering institution for an evening. These are institutions that devote themselves to gathering and distributing food, visiting the homeless and speaking to those in need. You’ll get to be with them and help them do some of their work!
In order to visit the institutions, it is required to speak Portuguese.

Be mindful that due to logistic reasons, we can’t take you to the institutions, but in the link above you may find all necessary details to get to them.
