Celebrating its 20 years, Luz Saúde could not fail to reinforce its commitment to collaborate with the communities it serves and the Portuguese society in general. We hope that the actions envisaged within the program ‘20 years, 20 causes’, initiated in 2020 and counting with the direct involvement of employees and Luz Saúde group Holding in support of these Portuguese associations, may contribute to the improvement of conditions in different areas of intervention in society, from health to environment, inclusion and combating of poverty. Here are 15 projects implemented this year in collaboration with various social agencies:
Embrace SEMEAR cause means supporting people with disabilities. Its main purpose is to work towards their inclusion, and it was the first cause supported in the scope of Luz Saúde´s 20 years celebration and promotes volunteerism with this association all year.
SEMEAR supports the inclusion of people with disabilities, providing them with adequate professional training and personal and social development, based on their immense potential, minimizing their limitations and maximizing their autonomy, such as some teambuilding actions: support in organic horticultural production, preparation, confection, transformation, and sale of gourmet products.
In December 2020, several containers were placed in Luz Saúde hospitals and clinics to promote non-perishable food donations, such as milk, fruit juices, baby food porridges, biscuits, canned goods, rice, pasta, oil, and olive oil from employees.
Luz Saúde delivered to Banco Alimentar 2,630 kilos of food in total, donated and collected by the employees of its units during the Christmas season. In 2019 (the most recent data available), the 21 Food Banks locations in Portugal distributed 23,382 tons in food. That food reached 2,400 institutions and around 380 thousand people. It was the contribution of Luz Saúde towards the goal of keep “feeding this idea, that for almost 30 years now is making the difference in the life of the country”.
Operação Nariz Vermelho
To be sick is not funny at all, even more so as a child. In this context, Luz Saúde gave its support to Operação Nariz Vermelho (Operation Red Nose), acquiring 1,500 red noses that were distributed among children and employees in Paediatric consultation and inpatient service, in the units of Hospital da Luz network, and thus helping the association’ Operation Red Nose’ to continue giving joy to hospitalized children.The program is to help Operação Nariz Vermelho, a private social solidarity institution (IPSS), with the mission to bring some joy to hospitalized children, their families, and health professionals.
Fundação Rui Osório de Castro
Hundreds of Xi-Coração, a rabbit with a big heart and even larger arms, the mascot of Fundação Rui Osório de Castro, ‘took by assault’ the Christmas trees in all Luz Saúde units.
Fundação Rui Osório de Castro’s main goal is to support and protect children with cancer and their respective families. Their activity is divided into two main areas: information (clarification sessions for parents and children on questions related to childhood cancer) and promotion of medical research in this area. This IPSS, working in pediatric oncology, is one of the causes supported in the scope of Luz Saúde’s 20 years.
To support Salvador’s association mission “to promote the inclusion of people with motor disability in society and improve their quality of life, potentiating their talents and sensitize to equal opportunities”. Luz Saúde has been supporting the Associação Salvador Christmas campaign for several years now, thus supporting numerous needs from people with motor disabilities. Two of its initiatives are the annual campaign Barrete Solidário (Solidarity Hat), to raise funds during Christmas – this year having for the motto “Let’s give more color to Christmas and those in need” – and Ação Qualidade de Vida (Quality of Life Initiative), that supports people with motor disability and no financial means to materialize individual projects. By acquiring 3.000 “solidarity hats”, Luz Saúde materializes the dream of 43-year-old Cláudio Gomes – who requested support to get an adapted wheelchair to practice handball and continue competing. And in cooperation with another company, Luz Saúde helped to satisfy the request of 42-year-old Hugo Maia – a wheelchair basketball champion, and needed new equipment to maintain the highest level and integrate the National Team in the European Championship once again 2021.
Domestic violence is one of the most current problems of Portuguese society; Showed escalation with the confinements imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic; To be fought against and prevented requires the awareness and empowerment of all people, in particular health professionals, to be able to recognize the main warning signs of this criminal act and help the victims. The webinar “Violência doméstica: conheça os sinais e saiba como agir” (Domestic violence: learn the signs and how to act) intends to contribute for that purpose, offering the participants an approach to the phenomenon, the signs, and consequences of domestic violence, as well as the ways to help the victims that are available to all.
It is never enough to talk about the impact of the pandemic to give more relevance to the rising problem of mental health. Manicómio initiative started in March 2019. Their main purpose is to demystify stigmas related to mental health, foster patients’ employability, and promote their social inclusion. Luz Saúde Manicómio held a webinar on new approaches to mental health; a group of Luz Saúde employees attended a masterclass on sculpture and ceramics with an artist of the project Manicómio. “How to make your own monster” was the challenge of this masterclass.
The latest survey conducted in Protugal concluded that there are approcimately 1.4 million informal caretakers. They deal with enormous emotional, economic, and social challenges every single day. This November, Luz Saúde partnered up with Association “Cuidadores” aiming on supporting caretakers and former caretakers with offering: information and conselling, welfare activities (which allow them to take brief break from work), empowerment actions and workshops, and awareness actions and emotional support.The emphasize of this collaboration is: every caretaker deserved to be acknowledged and supported.
Luz Saúde has been working with Portuguese Association of Asperger Syndrome (APSA) since July 2021 to fulfill its mission: “promote support and social integration of people with Asperger syndrome, provide with better conditions, and empower them to lead an autonomous and dignifies life”. Luz Saúde and APSA held a free webnair on this neuro-behavioural condition, destined to health professionals, and opened to all citizens interested in the topic. During the webnair session, the main symptoms of Aperger syndrome were approached, as well as its conditions. We counted on the participation of a mother who will report her experience with a 28-year-old suffering from Asperger synrome. At Luz Saúde, we share APSA’s dream, so that people with Asperger syndrome may have equal opportunities and feel accepted, respected and fulfilled.

Prevention is a way to combat this scourge and the mission of both sides is to raise the awareness to more and healthier behaviours, and save lives. Due to the fact that, in Portugal, there are estimated 10,000 victims from sudden death each year. The objective is to provide schools with the necessary knowledge and resources; because, in cases of cardiorespiratory arrest, every minute counts for the possiblity of survival.
Brigada do Mar

The volunteer teams accompany children who are far from their familiar envonments and tell one Christmas story per night. The teams also helps the association with promoting materials and tools and developing skills that provide a supportive environment for the children at the hospital. Both actions are taken in the broader and more comprehensive civil society, with children in general.
