Grupo NOV, keeping its Social Responsibility value, recently decided to support the reconstruction of a burned house in the Municipality of Oleiros, in a initiative with the Municipality of Oleiros and CCDRC - Commission for the Coordination and Regional Development of the Center.

The forest fires of October 2017, in Portugal, were responsible for the destruction of vast fields in the central and northern areas of the country. The destruction spread far beyond the forest area, it affected also several homes and many families.

Oleiros was one of the most affected municipalities where, even today, there are houses need to be rebuilt. Grupo NOV, keeping its Social Responsibility value, recently decided to support the reconstruction of one of these burned houses, in a joint initiative with the Oleiros Municipal Council and CCDRC - Coordination and Regional Development Commission of the Center.

The house to be rebuilt is owned by an elderly woman from the parish of Álvaro, in the municipality of Oleiros. Grupo NOV's support focused on offering various materials and equipment for the house’s reconstruction such as stonework, ceramic tiles, flooring, interior and exterior paints, interior doors, tiles and other sanitary equipment. All materials were delivered by Grupo NOV in November.

The reconstruction works are now under the supervision of the Oleiros Municipal Council and the CCDRC.
