Duarte is a 5-year-old child who struggles daily with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, which affects him physically and neurologically. We will help Duarte to benefit from all the therapies he needs to win each day.

Do you know those stories full of adventures, smiles and heroes? It’s these stories that we would like to help Duarte live.

Duarte is a 5-year-old hero who has been diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, but who can have a happier life with your help. Duarte belongs to a numerous family and his days are made of physiotherapy and hydrotherapy sessions.

Three times a year, a more intensive therapy breaks with his routine, but promises to help him getting more smiles to the little one’s face. This therapy costs 3 000€, for 20 days, so adding to the costs of other treatments (physical therapy: 35€/hour, hydrotherapy: 60€/month), it put Duarte’s family in serious financial difficulties and it’s even impossible for Duarte to enjoy some of them. Therefore, AEGIA Social appeals to the creation of a “solidarity wave”, which aims to collect funds (minimum goal: 500€) to be spent in Duarte’s therapeutic treatments.

Let's help Duarte and his family who struggle every day for the happiness of this child!

Be part of this story and … a hero, too! AEGIA Social gives you the cover.

About the author

Associação de Engenharia e Gestão Industrial de Aveiro (AEGIA), founded in 1997, is a non-profit association that brings together all professional students of Engenharia e Gestão Industrial (​​Engineering and Industrial Management) who study or carry out their professional activity in Aveiro district.

Since its foundation, AEGIA has gradually taken on a key role with its associates, promoting pedagogical training actions, having a great associative dynamic with its members, serving as a bridge between the extracurricular education and the business environment. Initiatives in the cultural, academic and sports fields are also included on AEGIA activities. Recently, and in order to form social people, its projects have also been created in the ​​social responsibility field.

We, Bruno Vale and Carolina Santos, are both Volunteer Firefighters, but it is without uniform that we join you to help Duarte.

This is the only way - together - to see him happy.

    Deus, concede-me a serenidade para aceitar as coisas que não posso alterar, para alterar as coisas que posso e a sabedoria para conhecer a diferença.
