Viaggi solidaliPublished 07 Feb, 2017 under Eco Holidays


Mandy Sommacal e Martina Caporaletti, veterinarie, hanno scelto SIMABO per una vacanza solidale! Loro non passeranno le loro giornate a visitare cagnini sotto il sole, ma hanno acquistato un “viaggio organizzato” a S. Vicente e Santo Antao e raccolto alcune cose che ci sono utilissime, direi indispensabili: Farmaci, trasportini per gatti in metallo e anche un lenzuolo (con gli angoli 🙂) per l’ostello! Grazie di cuore per il sostegno e i regali!
