Associacao Saude Crianca

The ASC is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families living in the poorest neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Grounded in the principle that illness is not caused by biological factors alone, ASC aims to break the vicious cycle of poverty and suffering - illness, hospital admission, and subsequent readmission and/or death - by assisting not only the child but his or her entire family as well.

"I thanks a lot Saude Crianca assistance, for giving me an opportunity to do a professionalization course. My life changed a lot after that I started to get the assistance here, I thank Saude Crianca for the oppportunity. I have been for several events with them to show my work;and it was very good. Here in the course, I met wonderful people. Saude Crianca assistance is very good, wonderful course. On the assistance, besides the course,what I like more is the cosy project, is wonderful I learnt many things, the basket of food they donate to my family is very good and important for me. They also donate the enriched milk for my son, and due to all of that he was never more hospitalized because of Saude Crianca. Many Thanks" -Sandra (Mother)
