Fogo: More than 300 families receive basic food baskets to minimize the bad agricultural situation

São Filipe, Aug 24 (Inforpress) – More than 300 families from the municipalities of São Filipe, Mosteiros and Santa Catarina received basic food baskets to minimize and mitigate the difficult socioeconomic situation resulting from the bad agricultural year.

The distribution of the basic basket followed the agreement signed earlier this year between the Government and religious institutions and its distribution is coordinated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the three counties of the island.

The selection of families in greater need was carried out with the participation of leaders from the different communities from the three municipalities, in some cases, with the collaboration of social workers from the City Hall and other religious institutions.

The basic food basket contains some products such as corn, rice, flour, beans, powdered milk and a small amount of money to purchase other products such as spices for the beneficiary families, helping to deal with the social and economic situation they are experiencing.
