“Mobile Health” in Portugal
Irmandade da Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Fornos de Algodres
Location: Fornos de Algodres, Portugal
The organisation provides social and medical aid to dependent persons. It also helps isolated seniors through a range of permanent services.
The “Mobile Health” project fosters the physical and social mobility of beneficiaries, enabling them to access the care provided by the organisation. The organisation is seeking to acquire a vehicle for two purposes: the implementation of a social transport service allowing beneficiaries to access the organisation’s care and rehabilitation centre, and the transport of healthcare professionals to the homes of beneficiaries.
