According to Correio da Manhã, in the last two years the foundation, represented by lawyer Luís Borges Rodrigues, executor of the benefactors’ estate, has already donated 24 ambulances worth more than two million euros.

It is recalled that, just last week, O MINHO had reported that the benefactors had offered a new ambulance to the Monção Fire Department. Something that had already been done last year.

“This donation meets its mission and commitment to civil society,” says the Vila Praia de Âncora corporation.

He adds: “The League of Portuguese Firefighters, under a proposal formalized by the Direction of the Humanitarian Association, recognized this act and awarded the medal of Distinguished Services – Gold Degree, posthumously, to the benevolent couple represented by Dr. Luís Borges Rodrigues”.
