Lucas 10,35

Lucas 10,35 is a volunteering program aimed at s older persons. Considering the demographic challenges in Portugal – social isolation and health and economic frailty – this initiative aims to engage local volunteering groups to “stay, do and live” with older persons from their region that are alone at their homes or institutionalised. With the support of Caritas’ resources, parishes and civil society movements three main perspectives have been defined: improve the knowledge of current practices on ageing, improve training and implement initiatives in this area.
