Together for One Purpose

We are keenly aware of our responsibility at this point and we will continue to do our part: serving thousands of families in Brazil and around the world, without giving up the health and safety of everyone involved in this process. We believe that offering safe working conditions for our personnel and other members of our chain is part of our commitment. That is why we have adopted some measures to take care of all the people involved in our operational context. #OurPartForTheWhole.

Donations that make a difference

We will donate BRL 50 million worth of food, medical supplies and support to research and social development funds to fight Covid-19. We will donate to hospitals, social assistance organizations and health professionals based in the states and cities where we have operations. These will take place in more than 10 states, with operations in more than 70 cities in Brazil and also in the Middle East: UAE/Kuwait/Turkey.

The action has four fronts: Health and Emergency Actions; Generation of Work and Income; Education and Technological Inclusion and Food Security and Social Protection. Each one of them has different deadlines for registration and maximum amounts per project, which can be checked in the enrollment notice.
