VdAlpinistas together in a solidary expedition to Chimborazo Mountain, Ecuador

Vieira de Almeida & Associados gathers an expedition with four VdA members - João Vieira de Almeida, managing partner, Miguel Mendes Pereira, Competition & EU partners, Joaquim Lampreia, managing associate at VdA's tax practice and Carolina Guedes Silva, receptionist - which goal is, when "they touch the moon", to help three solidarity institutions.

This expedition has as major motivation a fundraise for three solidarity institutions - Ajuda de Berço (an association that shelters new-born to 3 year old of age abandoned or in risk children), Escolhinha de Rugby da Galiza (a school that promotes the practice of rugby among the children of underprivileged households from the neighbourhood of Galiza, in Cascais) and Diferenças (a child development centre that supports children with trisomy 21 and other development disorders). This cause has already raised a good amount from enterprises and individuals, an amount that can be increased and that will be given to the three institutions if the VdAlpnistas reach the Chimborazo Mountain summit.
