In the afternoon, the missionaries did the transportation of the Venezuelan migrants who were in the Fair of the “Passarão” to the center of assistance. Two serious cases of health were detected, which were immediately referred to hospital for hospitalization.

Still in the afternoon, a bus was made available to transport more refugees to the center of assistance. A great interaction among everyone took place. Dinner was served and clothes were distributed in a harmonious way.

“This mission had a very special characteristic and we feel we are taking a step ahead, managing partnerships and a greater interaction of the Fraternidade with local society, sectors and institutions of Boa Vista. We are ending this mission of the Fraternidade with a lot of joy in the heart, seeing that the seeds that we have planted are growing and attracting other souls to service. We leave with a peaceful heart and very happy for we have been able to give some human dignity to these brothers and sisters”, continued Satva.

Great press coverage and presence of governmental organizations in the Center of Reference to the Migrant.

“We have had a day that to us was a crowning of the second part of the mission, when we see this place manifested, and, what is most important, we see the Venezuelan brothers and sisters trusting us. It became very clear to some authorities that this trust permitted the opening of this place in the way it happened”, said Clara, a missionary of the Fraternidade.
