His Excellency the President of the Portuguese Republic Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa's Banco Alimentar Visit

 

Yesterday Geoff and I had the opportunity to discuss NHR Compassion directly with His Excellency the President of the Portuguese Republic Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. The meeting also took place in front of the press and television with Isabel telling Portugal of the NHR commitment to  Banco Alimentar and her country. We featured on prime time 8.00pm news channels.

We were joined by seven other donors including the CEO of BPI and Carlos Moreira da Silva. Together this group of which you are a part has donated as of last week €850,000.

The President impressed us with his own sense of compassion and expressed his gratitude for our work. I told him we “were are in this together” he looked me in the eye and said “thank you to all of you, Portugal thanks you”
