Paint a child’s face and bring a smile upon it

On the last day of April all EVS volunteers of Teatro Metaphora gathered once again to participate in the closing ceremony of child abuse and mistreatment month.


We gathered in front of the municipal building of Câmara de Lobos in the early morning hours where the festivities were held through out the day.


The sun was shining bright, the music was turned up high and there was a lot of laughs shared among us  and the kids themselves. Our contribution to the festivities was face painting. It was a joy to work with the kids and for them, and to see the smiles on their painted faces.
