My first contact with AIDGLOBAL follows an invitation addressed to the Portuguese guitar master António Chainho for a special participation in the 5th gala of “O Fado Acontece” – a fundraising event through which the NGO’s anniversary is celebrated.
In this context, I met the President of the Board Susana Damasceno and the organization in more detail. Interestingly, sometime later during a lunch with friends we met again and the possibility of a more effective collaboration arose, to provide support in the production of the events that ONDG develops. This invitation was a happy coincidence since I felt the need to volunteer in my professional area.
It has been a great experience to be part of the management of AIDGLOBAL: to witness their victories and see the difficulties overcome. It is very gratifying to be part of this team and give my contribution to such a noble cause.
