Associação Salvador is an IPSS founded in 2003 by Salvador Mendes de Almeida, quadriplegic since the age of 16 following a motorcycle accident, whose mission is to promote the social inclusion of people with physical disabilities and improve their quality of life, enhancing their talents and raising awareness of equal opportunities.
It develops its work by supporting around 400 annual beneficiaries in areas such as adapted sports, the attribution of equipment and support, professional integration, social events, among others.
It has also played an important role in sensitizing young people and society in general, addressing several key issues, such as the lack of accessibility, contributing to the formation of a new generation of people active in building an inclusive society and exerting pressure on entities to ensure enforcement and enforcement of the law.
The spread of Covid-19 and the consequent necessary confinement, further accentuated the isolation of people with physical disabilities who, today, often find themselves without assistance, trapped at home, many with loss of employment and income and without access to basic needs.
The aggravation or emergence of these more fragile situations led the Associação Salvador to strengthen support in this area through Psychosocial support, which consists of a support line and psychosocial referral, therapeutic groups and support for extraordinary cases with food baskets and equipment.

Rede de Emergência Alimentar
Rede de Emergênica Alimentar was created to support Food Banks so that they can continue to fulfil and even reinforce their mission at this very demanding time.
The measures taken by the Government, essential to prevent the spread of the disease caused by Coronavirus, have already caused extremely difficult situations, even desperate ones, for the poorest population, due to lack of resources. In addition, several social institutions had to discontinue some of the support responses normally provided, such as day care centers, nurseries and distribution of food baskets.
On the other hand, there is a reduction in the number of technicians and assistants who work in these institutions, the vast majority of whom are women, who, due to the closure of schools, are forced to stay at home to assist their families.
It has thus become essential to structure an emergency food distribution network that, while taking care of hygiene and safety, allows to feed and support those who do not have resources and those who, now, have left or are no longer having them.
In addition to all that was mentioned, there was an additional challenge: Food Banks cannot carry out the usual food collection campaigns in supermarkets. And so, to be able to respond to all requests without a predictable outage of stocks, they need people and entities that associate themselves with an exceptional donation, in cash or in kind, that allows them to continue providing basic food to the most needy people.
Casa da Criança de Tires
"In this house, there is a family for children who continue to feel a deep emptiness of a 'real' home with a 'real' family."
All children have the right to live a peaceful, secure present and dream of a bright future, but for some of the little ones in this country, having a safe home, going to school, making friends, among others, are not guaranteed rights, unless if they are in places like the Casa da Criança de Tires.
They are children of inmates or children in danger who are temporarily sheltered in our House, being our pioneer and unique institution in the work developed with incarcerated mothers and their children. In a familiar environment, they receive affective rules and necessary tools so that they can develop in a safe and positive way.
