The State of Emergency declared by the Portuguese government has resulted in unexpected consequences. It created a serious economic disaster. The number of people that lost their sources of income, their livelihood is increasing daily and is affecting the most vulnerable people across our country – these are people with the least resources at their disposal and are people in desperate need of HELP right now and for the foreseable future!

PS: We have a young couple in Albufeira that needs help with accommodation. We looking for a studio, a one bed apartment or even just a room for a young couple who live in Albufeira (but can be anywhere else in Algarve). They have become homeless, and have no money until the end of the month. Their work was cash in hand at a local restaurant. Temporary accommodation has been secured until monday, and a food parcel was given to them, but need somewhere for them to stay afterwards. Can anyone help? Please only reply if you can help. Thanks.
