Construction of a building for activities and room adaptation, adapting them to special needs.
The Association of Our Lady Consolator of the Afflicted - Convento dos Cardaes is a place of social life, with each of the 35 "girls" who live here; and cultural, through the daily visits of an audience that discovers, in Principe Real, a place they didn't know there was.
New Work: The Solution to an Urgent Need
We are going to do construction work on a new building and refurbishing the old one, trying to give our "girls" a better quality of life and making this project a project for life. At this moment we have many problems to solve: the space of the Convent is neither sufficient nor adequate to the present needs. The rooms are small and far from the bathrooms, the kitchen is far from the cafeteria, there is no nursery space and the girls do not fit in the activity rooms. European and Social Security legal requirements, which in a recent assessment reported that there is a need for urgent remodeling, are not met.
Budget totaling € 2 million, not including bedroom furniture and activity room equipment.
