Resolute Marine has contributed to the Fogo Fund for Cape Verde Volcano Victims (Fogo Fund). Fogo Fund is an apolitical non-profit charitable organization dedicated to bettering the lives of the people of Fogo, Cape Verde, one of the ten islands in the Cape Verde archipelago. Fogo Fund is focused on helping island residents who have lost their homes, schools, and businesses due to the volcanic eruption that occurred on November 23rd. Fogo Fund has teamed with the Assosiacao de Viticultores de Cha (AdVC), a well-regarded farming cooperative wherein farmers work together and divide profits evenly amongst all member families. AdVC is well established in the Fogo community and will ensure that every family affected by the volcano receives an equal share of donated funds.

Resolute Marine CEO Bill Staby said, “Although our contribution is modest in comparison to the widespread devastation this natural disaster has caused, our company is deeply committed to serve the people in the communities where we work.”

Resolute Marine COO Olivier Ceberio added, “We have established close relationships with many Cape Verdean public and private organizations and thus understand the shattering impact this unexpected event has caused.” “We wish we could do more and hope others will respond to the call for help in the true spirit of caring.”
