The Support Group of Beneficncia Portuguesa is a non-profit organization, formed over 22 years ago, by volunteers. It develops its work by receiving donations of clothes and objects, which are sanitized and classified. These items are offered to the public, at affordable prices, through a permanent thrift store that operates within the hospital and two temporary annual bazaars. All funds raised are intended for renovations and the purchase of equipment for four wards of the Single Health System (SUS), at the Hospital da Sociedade Portuguesa de Beneficência in Pelotas. Currently, the group is coordinated by Claudia Azambuja and has the work of around 40 people and the support of the local community. Learn more at: @beneficenciaportuguesapelotas.
