And here is the GOOD NEWS:
With all the individual donations and the support of Câmara Municipal de Alcanena (city council) approved last Monday, we were able to reach the minimum (8.900) to carry out the project to revitalize Minderico.

Personally and on behalf of the team, I would like to thank you for believing in our work. We are not far from the total amount needed and your help is still fundamental!
