Social Commitment

Connecting people and communities.

  • APAV (Portuguese Association for Victim Support) APAV has expanded its work across borders and has assumed the presidency of Victim Support Europe.
  • Estímulo Launched the “Global Health Programme” in Cape Verde and Mozambique, bringing drinking water and basic health care to more than 15,000 school students.
  • Médicos do Mundo Provided more primary health care and maternal and childcare at the Ndedja Resettlement Centre in Mozambique, supporting more than 350 children under the age of five.
  • Mundo a Sorrir Sent dentists and materials for assembling medical and dental equipment to help support clinics in Sao Tomé and Príncipe, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde and Mozambique.
  • SIM Distributed hundreds of blankets donated by TAP to victims of Cyclone Idai on the southern bank of the river Buzi, in one of the worst affected parts of Sofala Province.
  • WACT For the first time it supported the Spirit, Sebê Nón and Bô Energia projects implemented in 2016 and 2017.
The Programme was recently renewed and extended to more institutions, and now, in addition to those based in Portugal, includes entities in Brazil and the countries in Africa in which we operate. In 2019 alone, we were able to support our six partner NGOs and associations with more than 190 flight tickets. We will soon be announcing new partnerships. 

Volunteering

We are always looking to support good causes and encourage our employees to take part in them. Whether on a regular basis or as a one-off, and regardless of our field of activity, our goal is always to make a difference.

Where we offered support in 2019:


  • SURFaddict: From the north to the south of the country, SURFaddict (Portuguese Association of Adapted Surf) helps people with disabilities to go surfing. We have supported this wave of solidarity in various ways since 2017.
  • CASA: Along with volunteers from CASA (Homeless Support Centre), we have engaged in social solidarity activities promoted by the association, particularly in the preparation and distribution of hot meals, hygiene products and clothes. 

     


Campaigns and Donations

We believe it is by strengthening our values that our impact on and contribution to the development of society can be maximised, in complete alignment with our business. 
 


Juntos por Moçambique (Together for Mozambique)

Following the destruction caused in Mozambique by Cyclone Idai in March 2019, we organised a campaign to help support the country through the donation of miles. Yet again, our TAP Miles&Go Clients contributed with solidarity miles for all the organisations involved; miles that were later used by rescue missions and for the transportation of auxiliary cargo.
