João Morais completed a ‪#‎Development‬ themed ‪#‎SWAward‬ Voluntary Service at the Hospital São João in Porto, ‪#‎Portugal‬. During his service he helped children with Math homework and accompanied some of the patients to the hospital chapel for Mass. João also visited the hospital on Christmas and Easter Day to play with the children, talk about any thing and how they felt “above all, the children saw in me a friend” João said.

Another part of his service João restored the exterior of a church that is in his area that was quite dirty and covered with graffiti. “Always I tried to do my best trying to put into practice everything we have learned in the scouts”.
“[Overall] I loved doing this project and I think the social impact that it had was great. It is an experience to share so that other scouts can serve and can help create a better world like I did”.
