An ONG for Tarrafal - "Dar as Mãos"

On Sunday, 13 December 2015, we celebrated our public presentation of "Dar as Mãos" in Tarrafal. With personal invitations sentapresentacao1 to the tradespeople of Tarrafal and other special guests, and posters for the whole village community, we asked the people of Tarrafal to participate in the ceremony.

They played a critical role in establishing the ONG "DaM", as well as in implementing the goals of the association in the medical sector. Furthermore, they set up an aid association in Germany in September 2015, which has set itself the goal of promoting and supporting the work of "Dar as Mãos" in Tarrafal.

The festive event in the newly renovated primary school John Wood began with the presentation of the founding members present apresentacao3of both organizations , and the board unclench with our association logo by our president Jailson Carvalho and the association's subsidiary in Germany , Dr. Friedrich Doerr .

Following this, assistant paramedic Jair Pires, representative of the Posto Sanitario de Tarrafal de Monte Trigo, accepted the donated medical equipment and expressed thanks on behalf of the Posto Sanatorio for these valuable acquisitions.

At this point the focus shifted from past actions to current and future activities: the campaign "Ajuda-nos a ajudar" (“Help us to help”) was launched: printed information on the activities and objectives of "DaM" in French, English, Portuguese and German, plus a lockable collecting box for each guesthouse and tourist accommodation in Tarrafal, in order to collect monetary and material donations for the work of the association.

Using a projector, the website, which had only been online since the previous day, was introduced and explained.
