Food Bank collected more than 13 tons of food that will be delivered to 25 institutions

More than 13 tons of food were collected in the campaign promoted by Banco Alimentar Angola, last weekend. The food collected will be distributed to 25 institutions in Luanda, Benguela, Huíla and Cabinda, with the delivery process starting this Thursday.


The campaign, which had the support of the Omatapalo Group, was carried out in around 30 commercial spaces in the provinces of Luanda, Benguela and Huíla, according to a statement sent to VerAngola.

"The food collection campaign promoted by Banco Alimentar Angola (BAA) last weekend, in nearly three dozen commercial areas in Luanda, Benguela and Huíla, with the support of the Omatapalo Group, raised 13,619 kilograms of various foods, which will begin to be distributed from next Thursday, November 30th, to 25 institutions supported by the bank", the note reads.

According to the statement, food will begin "to be distributed to 25 institutions, in Luanda, Benguela, Huíla and Cabinda – in these last two provinces, for the first time – from next Thursday and until June" 2024, when the next campaign will take place, which will once again count on the support of Omatapalo.

It should be noted that the group joined the aforementioned campaign "with more than 300 volunteer employees from various group companies, at collection points, as part of a partnership announced last June, with BAA, which aims to support the fight against hunger and food insecurity and which will also include incentives for national production", says the statement.

Quoted in the note, Omatapalo's spokesperson, Edmar Manuel, considered that the "fight against hunger and malnutrition", as well as support for communities, are "strategic themes" for the company.

"The fight against hunger and malnutrition, as well as supporting communities, are strategic themes for Omatapalo, so this partnership with BAA, within the scope of our social responsibility policy, makes perfect sense, contributing to an objective that we have in common with this institution: improving the living conditions of those who need it most, especially children", said Edmar Manuel.

The president of BAA, Henrique Nunes, said that "the support of hundreds of Omatapalo volunteers for this campaign was very important to" achieve "these results that will benefit thousands of children and people in many institutions".

In addition to Omatapalo, the campaign also had the support of other entities, such as Banco Atlântico, Deloitte and the São Joaquim Scout Group, as well as "individual volunteers".

The list of 25 institutions benefiting from the campaign are: AACRA, ASSTI, A AVO, Abrigo, Arnaldo Jansen, Associação Amigos do Késsua, Associação Bom Samaritano, Beiral, Casa do Gaiato Benguela, Carema, Centro Cultural Jovens em Cristo, Centro Social Boa Nova, Centro Social Santa Bárbara, Dom Bosco, Divina Providência, El Bethel, Horizonte Azul, Lar da Nazaré, Lar Santa Isabel, Mamã Madalena, Mamã Muxima Malange, Misfron, Missão Católica do Tchinguiviro, Remar and Santa Paula Franssinetti.
