Serving the Portuguese and future generations

To contribute to the advancement of knowledge and information related to water and human health, the preservation of the water and natural heritage of Luso, and the sustainable development of the community of this region. Focused on the WATER element, Luso Foundation's action strategy is based on three basic principles that guide its action:

• The Water we drink has great benefits for health and well-being.
