4 June is the The International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression.
LÍ & LÁ PRINT STUDIO organized a Parade to highlight the street children problem and stop the citizens from stigmatizing them. This in collaboration with all institutes working with children in Mindelo.
Isaura Gomes, Mayor of São Vicente, promised in a speech to take the fate of these children to heart and to set up a night shelter, which soon became CAN: Centro de Acolhemento Nocturno.
Restaurants and hotels provided a warm lunch for all of them.
Creole saying on everyone's t-shirts:
Fâzé mnin nê nada
Kuidá del ê kê tud
(Anyone can make children
Taking care of them is what matters)
