On the 9th of May, as well as throughout the month, we will have several solidarity actions taking place on several islands, with the support of our partners in order to celebrate with solidarity and unity in a dignified manner with the largest possible number of Cabo Verdeans.
Together with the embassies of the European countries present in Cabo Verde (Spain, France, Luxembourg and Portugal) we ensure the distribution of food, hygienic and other necessary goods to some of the most vulnerable groups on the various islands, in partnership with FICASE and several NGOs and community associations on the ground.
Here are key messages and the Facebook links of some of the participating NGOs. Their photographs appear in the Gallery below

“With the campaign “Don't cancel, Re-book!” we intend to sensitize visitors not to cancel their trips, but to reschedule when there are safe conditions, in order to contribute, when possible, to sustainable and inclusive tourism.”
