As cestas prontas para entrega
The economic consequences of the pandemic have been felt worldwide, but in the case of Brazil just like other third world countries, it has been hitting hardest in marginalized communities such as favelas. The nature of the favela itself makes it very difficult to maintain a healthy social distance, adding the fact that its inhabitants cannot stop working and receiving a salary to feed their families.
To respond to the crisis, our Community Center has become a Market Basket hub where we receive donations, buy and prepare basic food and hygene baskets and distribute them to families in the community. Our close relationship with the community has helped us greatly in organizing and meeting as best we can the needs of the favela.
We are very grateful for our donors' support and kindly ask that you continue to help us if it is whithin your possibilities, so we can overcome this crisis together!
