Thank you Sofia!Published 23 Oct, 2016 under Donations, Eco Holidays, Guestbook, Guests of the month


In spite of her young age, Sofia Gião Torrinha has a profound and genuine love of animals. She’s vegetarian because the animals are all the same: a dog doesn’t deserve more respect than a chicken nor a cow. Large or small, no animal deserves a life inflicted with great suffering.

This great love for animals took Sofia to volunteer for 2 weeks at SIMABO Association, on the island Sao Vicente, in Cape Verde – West Africa. Sofia’s provided great assistance in the care of our ‘guests’ at the shelter. They always like to play (look at his legs)!


During her stay, she visited Santo Antao, notoriously known as the green island. By boat, Santo Antao is just an hour away from Sao Vicente.

Thank you Sofia for all your help! We are so grateful for your all your contributions which were delivered in such a great demeanor with integrity, Please extend our gratitude to your family for the gifts for our hostel (which helps fund our project)!
