Last Wednesday, the Soho Theatre hosted the gala to present the beneficiary projects of the fourth edition of the Malaga Suns Festival, which this year focuses on work focused on mental health and intellectual disability.

The aim is to raise awareness among the Malaga public of the important work carried out by these entities, separated into three projects and eight causes. The three projects are: La Casa de la Buena Vida (local) with its project “Ecoterapia” for the creation of a reforestation school, AFENES (provincial) with the project “Escuchándonos” to demystify and prevent mental health problems, and Pozos sin Fronteras Africa (Kenya) for its international project “Dando sonrisas y amor a los más vulnerables de la tierra” to improve the quality of life of severely disabled minors residing in the Mercyservant of the poor home in Machakos. The eight causes are: APA Foundation, Parkinson’s Association, Huellas Terapéuticas, Sisters Hospitallers, Nena Paine, Lagunillas Association and AFA.

An initiative that can become a reality thanks to the help of the Malaga City Council, the Provincial Council of Malaga, Fundación Lágrimas y Favores, Cervezas Victoria, Fundación La Caixa, Bodega El Pimpi, Vía Célere, Sanamar. And the collaboration of Bodegas Malaga Virgen, IDILIQ Foundation, Giants Gaming Sports, Famadesa, Caetano Benet, Hotel Soho Boutique, El Corte Inglés, Coca Cola, Quirón Salud, Copicentro, Málaga CF, Grupo Fox and Ingeniería Del Pozo.

This presentation marks the start of the countdown to prepare for the Solidarity Festival ‘Soles de Málaga’ 2023, which will take place on Sunday 30th April from 13:30h in the Plaza de Toros de la Malagueta. It is a pop-rock festival with food, drinks and lots of music with great performances, among many other surprises. And as always presented by the godmother of Soles de Málaga, the actress Belinda Washington.
