A free event open to the public that will be held next Saturday, May 14, on the Paseo de la Ría, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the NGO in the city.

As for the performances, there will be choirs, flamenco, jazz and modern music, as well as recitals by singer-songwriters from Huelva such as Josemi García, Rafa Púas or Alejandro Rivera.
With this “impressive program” said María José Pulido “we are going to take advantage of the celebration of the ‘Day of Hope’ to make visible and value the vital work of the Telephone of Hope to combat the worst and most invisible of pandemics, which is that of people who have lost the will to live.” A desire that the councilor has assured “you give them back, taking by the hand those who feel on the brink of the abyss, whether due to grief, depression or different circumstances, and who desperately need the help you give them, and in which we have to get the whole of society involved”.
For this reason, he has taken the opportunity to reiterate the complicity, support and unconditional involvement of the Huelva City Council, “to join forces in a fight as necessary as that of ensuring people’s emotional health”, recalling that since 959 28 15 15 Huelva’s Telephone of Hope “has been saving lives for three decades, through work that we are going to celebrate next Saturday, May 14, with the Day of Hope”.
