Given the situation imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, after lockdown, the Vida Irmã Maria de Aquino Project – Ubá, in partnership with the city’s Food Bank, donated a green basket (vegetables and fruits) weekly, for some families of children and adolescents who attend the Project. Also, with the help of other partners and donors, basic food baskets have been delivered monthly, to all families. It has been a difficult time, but we have tried to maintain “food security” through our few actions, always believing that better days will come.
