The Das Palmas à Ação campaign is an action promoted by the Associação Académica de Coimbra, which emerges in the context of the pandemic COVID-19 that we all face, without exception. It is time, more than ever, to look at the work done by health professionals who are on the front line daily and who do everything in their power to fight this battle against COVID-19.
It is in these moments that we realize that small gestures can save lives and that we cannot and should not remain indifferent to this very exceptional reality in which we currently live.
In this sense, the Academic Association of Coimbra launches this solidarity campaign “Das Palmas à Ação”, which aims to raise funds for the acquisition of hospital supplies, to donate to the Coimbra Hospital and University Center, which will have a dedicated wing only for the treatment of the COVID-19 virus.
Let's all embrace this cause, and move from applause to action!
