These fantastic "Basic Baskets" have been a lifeline for vulnerable people in the community of Cajuru in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A bit more info...
Each basket weighs 25kg, and can keep a family alive for a month.
Over 8 tonnes of food have been distributed.
Over 1300 families have been helped.
It's a wonder!

We have all ended up doing things we never thought we would do during this pandemic: doing keepyups with a toilet roll... learning TikTok dances... volunteering with a new community project... you name it!
Well, the wonderful staff at ECD have been out delivering these fantastic basic baskets, which has provided them with an opportunity to engage with their community in a way they never quite expected.
Check out some of the vital items that have been delivered to vulnerable families! ... See MoreSee Less
Making learning fun!
We have all had to learn to adapt in this strange time. Many university classes have gone online, children are in bubbles in schools, and many of us are being asked to work from home where possible.
It's so sad to say that the Community Centre is still closed, but look at the creative way that the ECD staff are still working with children in the community!
The images below are from a video where staff were asked to fetch different objects whilst pretending to be farmyard animals 🐥🐓 Here, a teacher at ECD shows families how they can help children learn in a fun way, practising numbers and colours!🔢🖍

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Unimed Curitiba, who have provided an outstanding donation to ECD Brasil through their Income Tax this year.
We are so grateful for this partnership which has helped fund vital work including providing hygiene boxes to vulnerable members of the community and supporting families!

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!
