First day of work of the fifth group of missionaries of the Fraternidade – International Humanitarian Federation.

“What we perceive is that the whole work done from the first group until today, and this is something we can confirm on all levels, is not restricted to the group that is in the CRI – Center of Reference to the Immigrant, but is extends to the relationships that were established in a general manner with the society of Boa Vista. This mission confirms inside us that our work goes way beyond the practical side. It takes place on more internal and deeper levels. Each day this is confirmed within us. Our wish is to be able to tune up with that which really has to happen, so that we may not interfere with this work that comes from above”, said Luiz, a missionary of the Fraternidade – International Humanitarian Federation.

The activities of cleaning, organization and harmonization of the CRI, in the city of Boa Vista, continue. A group of Indigenous refugees begins work with the land for the creation of a vegetable garden in the place.

Recreational activities conducted with the refugee children in the CRI.

“With the help and the effort of the sisters who are working with the children, organizing workshops of activities with a stable schedule, it has been possible to help the children to organize themselves”, observed Luiz.

The Missionaries visit a family of 14 refugees who live in a house.

Raising of donations of food in markets and shops of the city of Boa Vista.

Indigenous child with legs in plaster was taken to hospital because she began to present bedsore.

Selection of the donations received (clothes, food, toys, essential items, personal hygiene items) to be distributed among the refugees.

“For our great joy and gratitude, we perceive how much the Divine Providence is acting in the circuit of these donations. In certain moments, when something is lacking, soon that which was being asked for as a need appears”, concludes Luiz.
