We need your help to support communities impacted by Covid-19. Fortaleza is a very populated city in Brazil and one of the most impacted locations.
The not-for profit organization CEDECA Ceará has been working in three vulnerable territories in Fortaleza, Brazil: Bom Jardim, Jangurussu/Ancuri and Pirambu. In each of these communities, we promote art and-education activities and raise policy awareness in partnership with groups of teenagers, children and local organizations.
Groups of youth and social movements in those peripheral and impoverished communities in Fortaleza have mobilized initiatives and campaigns for collecting donations of food packages and hygiene kits, as a way to prevent the covid-19 outbreak in vulnerable areas and to support families in need that are struggling with the new corona virus pandemic. The CEDECA Ceará has engaged itself to those actions through opening its website and fundraise knowhow to facilitate the fundraising for those communities.
