As part of its social responsibility, CP is supporting the first organisation of the year by publicising the campaign to collect donations, making space available on board the trains, broadcasting videos on the Alfa Pendular service and also asking for the support of all its employees in collecting funds for ACREDITAR, so that children with cancer can have a better life.
Your donation will provide well-being for the families of children and young people with cancer in the Acreditar Homes in Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto, next to leading paediatric oncology hospitals, they welcome families from far and wide free of charge. There are around 180 of them each year who find comfort, security and the opportunity to share at a particularly demanding time in their lives.

One donation of blood can save three lives
CP is a partner of SANGFER - Grupo Ferroviário de Donadores de Sangue (Railway Group of Blood Donors), supporting this association and publicising its monthly blood collection events, which are open to the general community.
Give blood, a drop of life.
"The excuses for what he did to you are countless. Every day was different, except they weren't". This is the motto of the most recent national campaign to prevent and combat physical and psychological domestic violence organised by the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality (CIG), with the support of Portugal's secretary of state for equality and migration.
The initiative was presented on the same day that various entities across the country signed or renewed their commitment to the Pact against Violence, a project that aims to create and formalise a network of partner entities to mobilise emergency responses and support the work of the structures of the National Support Network for Victims of Domestic Violence.
The main goal is to prevent and combat domestic violence in Portugal, which is a serious problem.
In 2022, there were 28 fatalities in the context of domestic violence, and the number of complaints was the highest in the last four years, with more than 30,000 cases recorded, according to the Domestic Violence Portal.
If you need help or want to report a case, call 112 or 800 202 148. Domestic violence is a criminal offence.
