The Guainumbi social therapy facility is located on the outskirts of São Paulo in Brazil. It works with people with disabilities who come from disadvantaged and vulnerable families. Normally, they receive three meals a day and take part in therapeutic workshops such as baking, carpentry, music, theatre, dance and gardening. They also learn reading, writing and arithmetic. The institution started as a small project. Like all schools and community facilities in Brazil, Guainumbi had to close down with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic. Activities and workshops are now as impossible as eating together.
So far, we have been able to provide € 15,470 through donations to our appeal, Mitigainge the consequences of the Corona Crisis. This money will enable the families of the people we care for to be provided with food and hygiene supplies for three months. Twice a month packs are distributed to 118 households.
