Unimed Curitiba are a fantastic partner to Encontro Com Deus.
This virtual coffee morning was a great initiative to talk about Inclusion, in a time where it is even more important than ever to break down barriers and open doors of opportunity for young people.
These discussions are so important and ECD are proud to be a part of them.

So often, we are blown away by the generosity of people who support ECD.
A big thank you to the Decantar project, particularly Alice Vicenti, for this massively kind donation of personal hygiene products for the mums and children in the ECD's homes in Curitiba.
Simply wonderful! 💕

Of 58 women who are receiving support from Encontro Com Deus' residential homes, 42% have suffered from Domestic Violence.
It's so important that ECD continue to support these women and their children with care, support, education and more, so that they can reintegrate to society without living in fear.
More than this, it is absolutely vital not to add to the trauma of domestic violence by separating mothers and children, and this is why ECD must continue their work in protecting families, and keeping mothers and children together.
Think you can help support this crucial work financially? Head over to www.encontrocomdeus.org/donate ... Every penny counts!
Can't give? We would really appreciate your words of encouragement and support for the team in Brazil - they make the world of difference!

Last Friday, Encontro Com Deus had a brilliant visit from the executive board of OSC HELPP de Santos-SP, an institution that has served women victims of domestic violence since 2012.
President Rita, Vice President Mari and PR staff member Jane came and met with ECD's President Patrick Reason, technical coordinator Alessandra, psychologist Cláudia and social worker Ana Paula.
This was made possible through a nomiation from the National Secretary of the Child and Teenager, Mauricio Cunha, who are a much-valued partner and friend of ECD in Brasil.
It was a brilliant meeting with conversations about management, and paths to sustainability. They exchanged experiences and positive work methodologies, to help support and protect families in the best possible way.
Teamwork makes the dream work 🙌🥳

The team at Encontro Com Deus Brazil had a brilliant experience on the 30th July during an ′′ Emotional Intelligence Workshop ′′ from Long Vision.
Emotional intelligence is key to all of our actions and decisions.
One staff member said that a critical part of the workshop was to be able to listento , reflect on, and apply the knowledge, which helps with personal growth.
Social worker Viviane said: ′′ It brought awareness of [the fact that], as much as I can't change some actions, it's up to me alone to deal with the consequences through positive thoughts".
The afternoon was wonderful, productive and thought-provoking. What do you think emotional intelligence means? Share with us in the comments!💙💚💛

What an amazing achievement from the staff at ECD Brasil!
More than 200 families helped by their kindness and helpful deliveries.
We have so much admiration for the hard work they have done to keep their community afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.
