Mindelo, Aug 21 (Inforpress) – Miss Cabo Verde Cristelene Pimenta is promoting a cultural benefit night tonight in Mindelo for people with Down Syndrome, from Santa Clara Center, aimed at caring for children and adults affected by the disease.
According to Miss Cabo Verde 2016, this is an initiative that “gained weight” after she visited the center in March on the occasion of World Down Syndrome Day.
“I had a warm and loving reception there and so I want to help and support them with an event, to raise funds, to help the children,” said Cristelene Pimenta, pointing out that those who go to the house are people from poor families.
The project was named “Nôs África” and the first event, this evening, should include a fashion show based on African fashion, with designers from São Vicente and the West Coast of Africa who live in São Vicente, and still moments of music, dance and stand-up comedy.
