A little while back, ECD Brazil had a wonderful visit from a project called @igualdademenstrual (Menstrual Equality) in partnership with @fleuritybrasil , who were promoting access to essential menstrual hygiene products for vulnerable women and women in difficult situations.
They came down to the centre to donate menstrual cups and other important items and also provided the briliant women of ECD with information about the products.
It was a very special day which promoted awareness of women's care and personal hygiene, which is such an important issue, and can be a source of difficulty and distress for vulnerable women and girls.
Thank you to the project!

A good old natter...☕️
On Wednesday 24th February, members of the 2017 and 2019 UK teams gathered on Zoom to hear updates from Brazil, share memories, and just generally have a catch-up.
It was a joyous occasion and we can't wait for the next one, next month!
Missed out on February's meeting but interested in joining us in March? Just drop us a message to get details!

Throwback to more Christmas fun and magic!
Check out these gorgeous pics of the Christmas recital from Jair Petry for all the fabulous mums and children at Encontro Com Deus' homes.
It was called ′′ Taking Music Out of History ′′ , and included lots of beautiful songs played on keyboard.
It was special and magical for the mums and children to spend time together relaxing at the recital which had a message of life and hope!

#TBT: Outubro Rosa
These pics are a little throwback to Pink October, demonstrated by the wonderful ladies of ECD Brazil!
October was Breast cancer Awareness month, and the ladies wore their stunning pink t shirts from @belezaescondida (Hidden Beauty Brazil) to show solidarity and spread awareness.

The new Casa Formosa, or Beautiful House, at ECD Brazil has been a huge blessing to all at ECD Brazil.
It has enabled all the families arriving during the pandemic to stay safe from violence, stay together, and receive care from the wonderful ECD staff.
It is the new quarantine centre that allows quarantine of all new families safely for two weeks before they either move into one of the larger homes, or go straight to their city of origin after just a few days.
It really does look beautiful too - look at these great pics!
