The delivery of the basic products began at the Centro Pequena Semente (Cacuaco), Centro Dom Bosco (Sambizanga) Lar Kuzola (Maianga), Comissão de Morro Bento and Benfica and at Beiral (home for the elderly).

Besides Luanda, basic food baskets were channeled to the provinces of Kwanza Sul, Malanje, Bié, Huambo, Huíla and Benguela to support families in need.

The artist stresses that this is a way of "distributing the virus of love to Angola". "I can no longer be satisfied with the reaction of the people who watched the live and the companies that have been supporting me for a long time so that this self-help action may have come true," he said.

For the singer, it is the duty of public figures to support their audience in whatever way they can, by mobilizing civil society and companies that work every day so that Angola's economy does not stop and so that the lives of citizens continue.

The managers of the institutions supported in Luanda consider it an added value to help strengthen the diet of those assisted.
