Altice Labs helps "Tampinha Amiga" solidarity cause
23/07/2021 Tampinha Amiga / Solidarity
Lara is an 8 years old girl, living in Cantanhede, who suffers from an alteration in the NeuroD2 gene. Only 3 children in the world suffer from this alteration and little is known about this disease.
It is known that this alteration caused her an epilepsy which is difficult to control and as a consequence has left her with brain injuries that affect all her motor and cognitive development. The collection of plastic bottle caps is a solidarity movement that is taking place and that could help Lara a great deal in her intensive treatment.
Altice Labs could not remain indifferent and joined this movement, asking its employees to collect plastic bottle caps throughout the company. It was possible to collect 35 kg of these caps (44 jugs) to help Lara fight her illness and on the 15th of July they were delivered to Lara's family.
Anyone who would like to follow Lara can join her Facebook page - Tampinhas pela Larinha.
Altice Labs thanks all those who contributed to this cause.
