Transportation and collaboration of the Fire Brigade
Round trip transportation to the CRI – Center of Reference to the Immigrant, done daily and punctually by the Fire Brigade of the city of Boa Vista. “They have been incredible partners, very calm and available, they show a lot of love for what they do”, explained Denise Gomez, a missionary of the Fraternidade – International Humanitarian Federation.

Meeting in the CRI involving most residents, among Indigenous and non-Indigenous Venezuelans. “We have had the opportunity of talking about some difficulties of relationship and of distribution of tasks. It was a summoning to all, for the growth, maturing and the strengthening of bonds among them. The importance of fraternity and of collaboration. Gathered in a great wheel, they proposed a solution to the problems themselves and voted, thus giving birth to a collaborative solution”, said Denise.

“We see that the children are great inspirers; they share things among them, collaborate with one another and are attentive to the needs of all, including the adults”, said Denise.
