We need your help to reach more people in situations of socio-geographic vulnerability, without the possibility of integrating our face-to-face services and without access to new means of communication.

EM'Community represents the relationship between People with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), integration and new technologies.

The Portuguese Society for Multiple Sclerosis (SPEM) is requesting support to reach more people with Multiple Sclerosis in a situation of socio-geographic vulnerability, without the possibility of integrating face-to-face services - essential for the good management of their disease - and without access to new means of communication.

EM'Comunidade is prepared to, through a multidisciplinary team, provide cognitive stimulation, meditation, physical exercise, physiotherapy and social support services to people with MS, through new technologies and digitally. All these services are considered essential for the proper management of the pathology.

We intend to transform the inaccessible into accessible, contributing to socio-digital inclusion and digital citizenship. Furthermore, we have evidence based on past experience that digital makes the lives of People with MS more proactive and contributes to lessening social isolation.

We want to support more people with MS by ensuring quality responses, regardless of their geographic location.

In this sense, the EM'Comunidade campaign aims to raise IT equipment and monetary funds that enable the virtual connection of 50 people with Multiple Sclerosis, in a situation of social isolation and info-exclusion.

⚠️ We need €10,000 to make 50 tablets available to 50 people with MS and, in this way, ensure that everyone is united, healthier and MS Community.

? SPEM is present from north to south of the country and islands, contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), family members and caregivers.

Budget and due dates

With this project, SPEM intends to raise €10,000 to buy 50 tablets.

Schedule:

Regular annual activity - Dissemination and promotion of the project by SPEM's media, namely, website, social networks, newsletter and quarterly bulletin. The EM'Comunidade will also be the object of communication at the National Congress of SPEM, held annually.

During the 1st quarter of 2022, we expect to purchase, distribute and offer to 50 People with Multiple Sclerosis the purchased tablets.

As of the 2nd quarter of 2022, we will start group sessions in areas that are fundamental for the good personal management of the disease (cognitive stimulation, meditation, physical exercise, physiotherapy and social support). These activities (group sessions) will last until the end of the year 2022, however, we anticipate that it will extend into subsequent years.
