Operation Shock

afpop is proud to be working with the Federação de Bombeiros do Algarve to provide lifesaving equipment for use by the region's first response teams in OPERATION SHOCK. Currently only INEM emergency ambulances come equipped with lifesaving defibrillator equipment installed. OPERATION SHOCK aims to provide a unit to be installed in one Red ambulance in each Bombeiros command, giving trained Bombeiros staff the ability to save lives of patients whose condition may deteriorate at the scene of an incident or while being transported to hospital.

New initiative for Members.

afpop admin - 24-10-2017

We are delighted to introduce a new initiative, in collaboration with our friends at Practice Portuguese.

There are several ways to learn a new language, but one of the problems with the Portuguese language is that there are two versions, European and Brazillian. Rui Coimbra and Joel Rendall, a Portuguese and a Canadian, set about trying to help people who move to Portugal to learn European Portuguese, in a fun and different way.



In this first collaboration we look at the issue of obtaining a residence permit – and the variation in dialects across the country.

In the next instalment we will take a more serious look at the language requirements for foreigners who wish to apply for Portuguese citizenship, but for now we hope that you will enjoy this more light hearted look at the problems, and the joys, of learning Portuguese.

Our thanks to Rui and Joel and their excellent team for their work in producing this podcast – and we hope that Members will take the opportunity to look at the Practice Portuguese website and learn more about the work that the team is doing.

Mas agora-aprecie o primeiro podcast, e diga a seus amigos … O Filíiiiipe J
