DP World Santos and Brasil Terminal Portuário, two of the largest port operators in the Port of Santos, are uniting again for a social action. This Saturday, 20th, at 8 pm, they promote a live show with singer Edshow, on his Youtube channel.

The initiative aims to gather donations for Casa da Esperança de Santos, an institution that provides the treatment for children and adolescents with physical and intellectual disabilities for over than 60 years as a way to promote community inclusion.

This period of social distance did not forbid the two companies from finding a solution that (in addition to the social aspect) recognizes the efforts of their employees, especially those who work in the terminal operations. On a daily basis, they have dedicated themselves so that the Port of Santos continues to provide essential services to the population. And this stream live show is a manner to thank them, since face-to-face celebrations are not possible now.

Known for singing hits by renowned artists of the pagoda, Edshow was chosen by DP World and BTP. The artist’s repertoire also includes his most famous single, called ‘Pra você acreditar’ and the most recent, ‘Pra longe daqui”, released last year.

HOW TO HELP?

Those interested in helping can make electronic bank transfers through ‘PagSeguro’. Throughout the concert, a QR Code will be available on the screen. You just need to point the phone’s camera to read it, select the value and complete the donation process.

All funds raised during the broadcast will be directly transferred in supplies to Casa da Esperança, which has been closed since the beginning of the pandemic and is struggling to maintain the services provided to more than 230 patients.
