  • Construction of a water well - Kenya / Completed Campaign
    2014-02-19

    Like other initiatives in previous years, AMU organized a dinner to collect funds to send to Kenya. In 2009, the theme was water and the funds were needed to build a well, as was explained: “Water is a precious good. We feel it mostly when there is not enough water! But we can mend this situation: dig a borehole and bring that precious liquid to the surface! This is what we are going to do in Uthiru, on the outskirts of Nairobi – Kenya. It will bring the population some relief towards the daily lack of water in the taps. But it will also be used by a school and for agriculture”. The fundraising process lasted until the end of 2009, due to the importance of this initiative.

  • Help for the reconstruction of windmills/ Kenya / Completed Campaign
    2014-02-21

    One of the greatest difficulties of the rural communities around Nairobi is to be able to find the necessary means to operate the old windmills or to build new ones in order to grind the corn they produce so that they have flour to make bread.

    AMU has already contributed towards the construction of one of these mills and is planning to help in building other windmills during this year. Another initiative consists in buying and carrying the corn from those communities with a bigger crop to those with less cereal.

  • School food in Bujumbura , Burundi / Completed
    2014-02-21

    A school for 80 children started in Bujumbura (with the last year of kindergarten and the first two classes of primary school). Next year, the third grade is expected to begin, with around 30 students more. Almost none of these children has a true family. They suffer from a great lack of affection, many of them are orphans and also have AIDS; they have been taken care of by relatives (uncles, aunts or grandparents) who have often given up struggling in this hard life and remain without doing anything to improve their situation.

    It would be possible to help these children with two meals a day (one of millet, a local grain high in proteins and one of corn), feeding them in all school phases. 

    Together with a private company, AMU has contributed to providing daily meals to the 80 children from this primary school, throughout the year. Besides the subsistence factor, the aim is also to introduce food habits for a more balanced diet.

  • Solidarity network with the people from Guinea-Bissau / Completed
    2014-02-21

    After the conflict which began on 7th June 1998 in Guinea-Bissau, a group of Portuguese and Guinean NGO’s formed this solidarity network to promote actions of humanitarian aid and political pressure to re-establish peace, through the creation of a webpage to provide information to around 150 people/entities directly involved with the issues of Guinea-Bissau. AMU participated in all the work meetings and also endorsed a message from Portuguese NGO’s calling for peace, which was then delivered in the CPLP summit, held in the city of Praia and responsible for joining efforts to achieve peace.

    AMU has worked in the field to accompany the situation of the refugees in Portugal during that time, since not all of them could have access to that status and were thus having further problems. 

    Besides the work developed by this network, which the local population greatly appreciated, it was also possible to establish closer bonds with several Portuguese NGO’s, such as CIDAC, ACEP and VIDA as well as with Guinean NGO’s, particularly ALTERNAG and AD and also with Conselho Português para os Refugiados (the National Council for Refugees).
