Ready for School (A Postos Para a Escola)

THE LUÍS FIGO FOUNDATION SPRINGS INTO ACTION IN THE «A POSTOS PARA A ESCOLA» PROJECT

On the 30 of July, the LFF was at the Centro Social do Menino Deus, in Lisbon, to support the «A Postos para a Escola» project from ENTRAJUDA.

With the presence of Luís Figo, this action marked the end of the school year, where, alongside LFF, ENTRAJUDA presented the «A Postos para a Escola» project, which performed eye, ear and dental screenings for about 1.500 children from 55 social solidarity institutions in Lisbon.

"We sponsor this project since its inception because it contributes in a successful way to improve the lives of these children" said Luís Figo. "The access to health care is a universal right, especially amongst children whose well-being and school success often times depends on an early diagnosis" he added.

For Isabel Jonet, President of Entrajuda, "To screen for early stages of eye and ear disabilities allows us to correct them and make a contribution for children's well-being in their first year of school, thus promoting social inclusion. The support given by the LFF along with other partners was decisive for the success of this project."

A van that was properly equipped was used, and these screenings were put in the hands of 2 professionals (Medical/Nursing, Dental Care) who screened the IPSS and diagnosed children who, in case they needed, were immediately forwarded to specialized doctors. 

This action falls within what the LFF has been developing, by acting in the areas of Health, Sports, Social Action and Education.
