“We will all leave here happier, because in some way we feel that we are contributing to a cause like this, something that is no longer imaginable in this century for any of us. What we can do to help those who need it most gives us great satisfaction”, added the chief Benfica, who arrived shortly after 4 pm and stayed in the tent until late afternoon, sorting and loading cans and parcels outside the organization’s orders.
