The full sales of ‘Compal da Terra’, launched in a limited edition in Portugal, will be given for the reconstruction and equipment of two schools in Mozambique. The schools are the Marcação School and the Nhampuepue School both located in the Sofala Province, covering 1,541 children and young people. The first school is already receiving children for the school year, which started in February.
“After the devastation caused by Hurricane Idai, children at the Marcação School are already using the new classrooms in a newly built school, continuing a school year with renewed hope and normality”, Compal reports. The Marcação School is being rebuilt through the ‘Help Us to Aid Mozambique’ project, a partnership with the NGO Apoiar and SIC Esperança, which follows the cyclones that affected that country in March.
Compal da Terra is made from the most appreciated fruits in Mozambique – mango, ata (custard apple), banana and malambe. Compal da Terra’s image is a tribute to Capulana, the traditional fabric of Mozambican women, a symbol of the country’s history and culture.
Meanwhile the company has just launched ‘Compal Vital Guava and Pitaya’, a refreshing nectar for the summer. Guava is a tropical fruit from Central and South America, rich in vitamin C and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and iron. From the rainforests of Central America, pitaya is a good source of fiber, has low-energy value and is a very nutritionally rich option with high water content and antioxidants.
