The result of many months of work as well as the kindness and generosity of donors across the Algarve, has meant that ACCA, in its joint campaign with  Castelo dos Sonhos, has topped its previous best  by providing back-to-school essentials for more than 700 needy youngsters who, without the charity’s help, would not be able to take part in classes. Back packs loaded with exercise books, pencils and pens, rubbers and rulers, compasses and calculators have now been distributed and will make a big difference to the lives of the recipients.

Can you offer a home to Harvey?

Can you offer a home to Harvey?Time to pull at the heart strings a bit here! APAA were informed, about 6 weeks ago, of a cat that was living near the beach in Ferraguda, being fed by the Fishermen. He had such a bad skin condition that he had scratched huge holes in his face. A lady took him into the veterinary clinic in Ferraguda and Bruno the vet has made a fabulous job, with APAA´s financial help, of getting this cat - now called HARVEY - back to good health. And look at him now!
