Brief description

Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML) is a private institution of public interest which, over the course of five centuries, has worked together with the community and based its actions on the defence of invaluable social values, with a strong focus on respect and promotion of good causes. SCML stands for the protection of fundamental social values such as proximity, respect and protection. The mission of SCML at its core is to provide fundamental support to the underprivileged and therefore improve the quality of life of those less fortunate in our population. As a result of this, SCML has assumed a strong focus on the isolation, abandonment, poor health, economics and social conditions of the oldest and most important part of our population. Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa which has willfully earned its reputation in the Portuguese society as a reference, intervenes today in areas such as social support, health care provision, education and cultural patronage. In order to achieve the purposes laid out in its bylaws, SCML also encourages the performance of studies and research in the areas which it functions.
