Luís Figo Foundation supports Operation Red Nose and "Embrace" HGO.

Luís Figo Foundation was at the Hospital Garcia de Orta , in Almada , to point out its support for the " Abrace um Hospital" project Operation Nariz Vermelho.

This " Abraço " given by Luís Figo Foundation makes possible the annual visits that Operation Nariz Vermelho performs weekly at the Hospital Garcia de Orta , fulfilling the goal of bringing joy to hospitalized children and their families and health professionals.

Luis Figo was accompanied by a couple clowns Doctors , Dr. PPP Pipoca and Dr. Tutti Frutti , having distributed moments of joy and smiles to children and young hospitalized in the pediatric service of the Hospital.

This support takes place through the partnership established since 2009 between Luís Figo Foundation ( FLF ) and Operation Nariz Vermelho ( ONV ) , since an increase in well-being and personal development values that are mirrored in the performance of ONV and shared by the FLF.

The team of ONV is formed by professional clowns , artists with specialized training in a hospital setting , working closely with health professionals adapting their performances to each child and their situation

«We all know that the joy and laughter contribute to the physical and psychological well -being , and the work done by Operation Nariz Vermelho has an important contribution to alleviate the sadness of these hospitalized children . It is undoubtedly a very valuable work which the Luis Figo Foundation joined a few years.» Refers Luís Figo.

Magda Morbey Ferro, communication coordinator of ONV stresses that «continuous and regular support of Luis Figo Foundation to our project has been not only critical to the financial viability of a service provided free of charge to hospitals , as well as an important recognition of our intervention ability in the hospital environment and contribution to the compassionate care of transforming moments in the lives of hospitalized children and consequently of the whole universe that surrounds them , their families and caregivers».
