Children's Day - Visit to Lisbon Zoo

On World Children's Day, the LFF, alongside the Lisbon Zoo, planned a special afternoon for over 1000 children from around 30 social solidarity institutions and schools from poor neighborhoods in the Great Lisbon area. These children were able to enjoy the company of Luís Figo, friends and volunteers in a visit to the Zoo in Lisbon, and to watch the Dolphin show.

Luís Figo, President of the Foundation, considers that this "is a special day that we should remember because children are our future and their joy and happiness are the seeds for a better world" underlining the commitment shown by the Foundation in "developing projects and initiatives that promote creating opportunities in different areas for children and young people in need".

Parallel to that, and still during the celebrations of the World Children's Day all across the country, 1600 gifts were given to children and young people in hospitals or sponsored by social solidarity institutions like the Centro Hospitalar do Alto Minho, Hospital de Santo António, Centro Hospital de Coimbra, Hospital D. Estefânia, Ajuda de Berço, Associação Acreditar, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, Cruz Vermelha Portuguesa, Liga Portuguesa de Deficientes Motores, among many others.
