DA IDEIA À REALIDADE:
A EVOLUÇÃO DA LOJA SOCIAL MONCHIQUE

A Associação Espiral de Vontades enfrenta novos desafios todos os dias.

Trabalha em prol do outro, minimizando a diferença entre as classes gerando um impacto positivo.

 


The warm voice that populates the terrace of on one of the slopes of Monchique embraces the world, so typical of people who give a lot of themselves without expecting anything in return. Luísa Martins, 42, has her roots in that village, a green oasis surrounded by the arid Algarve. She is a nurse in Portimão, the city where she went to school. After an interregnum in Germany, she found again the way back to the familiar origins, marrying a "monchiqueiro". "Life takes many turns," Luísa jokes, with a full, deep smile.

There are people who know half the world. Luísa seems to know the whole world.

When she walks the streets of her village, everyone waves, smiles or speaks to her, affectionately.

Their gestures are expressions of respect. Luísa even manages to give brief consultations in the middle of the street, which consist not only in technical, but - and especially - psychological support, to those who, often, receive no attention.

In 2011 and moved by a guttural willingness to help, she co-created the association "Espiral de Vontades" to help a child with leukemia.

The road traveled was crowned with success, so the association continued, spiraling the will that abounded. The work consisted initially in the collection and sale of bottle caps, whose revenues favoured the purchase of orthopedic materials and payments of treatments to be provided to needy children and adults throughout the Algarve.

The project was extended in 2017 with the implementation of a social shop, here more directed to the municipality of Monchique. Clothing, furniture and other goods are distributed to the various families that struggle for a dignified experience, "flagged" as deprived by other entities or by the association itself, after a careful process of analysis.

The shop is purposefully located in the centre of Monchique, but in a street "where cars are practically only passing", in order to allow the people who access it a discreet flow of movements, without attracting attention, without generating stigmata.

"Not everyone sees who goes there."

The association is continually dealing with several projects, a prolongation of wills, but above all of needs.

"It's a dream that never ends."
