The goal is to create a supportive community where everyone feels valued and heard.

The next monthly lunch is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, from 2 to 4 pm at Rendezvous on Camposol A Sector, with subsequent lunches held at the same time on the first Wednesday of every month. Tickets, priced at €10 per person, include a delightful lunch, sponge cake, and tea or coffee.
