In July 2019, Brinmer arrived in Brazil as Venezuelan refugee. In his words, “these was months of a lot of struggle, hunger, drowsiness and illness”. Brinmer contracted tuberculosis at the same time that he met Refúgio 343.
We guarantee his interiorization and his health treatment in Externa, a city of the countryside of Minas Gerais. Six months later, Brinmer celebrates one year in Brazil fully independent: he is employed, working with logistics at a local company, paying your own rent and married with the brazilian Maria do Carmo.
By here, he found a new beginning and a love too. We keep changing lives!
