Faces2Hearts in CABO VERDE: Improving public health through street dogs care

25 / 10 / 19

The city of Mindelo on the island of São Vicente is home to many street dogs. Their living conditions aren’t good and this has consequences on public health. Si Ma Bo is an organisation that tackles this problem by implementing a variety of actions. They organise free castration campaigns in isolated areas, they have a shelter for wounded and abandoned dogs, as well as a clinic that provides emergency and preventive care at affordable prices. Si Ma Bo also intervenes in schools to educate younger generations how to treat and care for animals.The organisation is partially funded by the EU, and also runs a hostel to cover its day-to-day expenses.

These are Bruno from Cape Verde and Alisha from Belgium. They are both well-travelled due to relatives spread across the world. They both studied abroad and got out of their comfort zone many times, which made them adaptable and easy going. They share passion for the ocean and can’t help dancing when they hear afro or Latino beats. They will take buses, boats and planes to cross seas, hills and volcanoes, to bring back untold stories during the month of October. Finally, they will show you how EU-funded projects, on no less than 5 islands of Cabo Verde, helped improve the quality of life of Cape Verdeans.
