Porto Inglês, May 9 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Justice presided on Sunday, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Day main event in Maio, during which she praised the role of the institution in the defense of humanism worldwide.
At the ceremony, which took place in the Noble Hall of the “Isaac Pinheiro” Municipal Assembly, Joana Rosa began by highlighting the role of the Red Cross in promoting humanism and brotherhood among peoples, especially in difficult moments, providing the service of solidarity to those who need it most.
The Minister stressed that there has been a “good relationship and cooperation”, between the Government and the Red Cross in the country, and “it will continue”, recognizing the contribution the institution has been making to Cabo Verde, an archipelagic country that has been facing problems with successive droughts and the pandemic.
For his part, the president of the Red Cross of Cabo Verde (CVCV), Arlindo Soares de Carvalho, said that the choice of the island to receive the main event has to do with the institution’s policy on decentralizing its activities, also responding to a request from the local delegation.
