SHELTER

In coordination with IOM (International Organization for Migration) and the Humanitarian Logistic Task Force, we carried out the humanitarian management of the Reception and Support Post (PRA) in 2021.

Located in the international bus station of Boa Vista, the PRA works as a temporary shelter to the shelterless population, hosting an average of 1,200 refugees and migrants a day. 

Refúgio 343 managed and monitored all services offered to the beneficiaries, such as overnight accommodation, meal, hygiene services, besides other activities provided by partner agencies.

EMERGENCY ACTION

Faced with the pandemic scenario, Refúgio 343 launched an emergency fund through national and international partnerships with BMS Foundation, One Young World, Fiocruz, MROSC, and Telefônica Foundation.

Through this fund, the organization acted in occupancies during the most critical period of the pandemic in Boa Vista and Pacaraima, the cities most impacted by the migratory flow. 2,764 people were served in 20 occupancies through the distribution of 5,542 prevention kits – food, cleaning and hygiene

We also supported the field hospital in Boa Vista against Covid-19, donating more than 100,000 hospital items.

HEALTH & PREVENTION

We support the health center for refugees in Roraima with an odontological office, a dentist, a pediatrician, a nurse and a nurse technician. We also have a network of volunteers in the health area to support the interiorized families. 

 

In partnership with Volunteer Vacations (VV), we promoted 2 medical expeditions to provide health care in the refugee camps as well as in the health center. In addition to these services, we held workshops focused on women’s preventive health in partnership with UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund)

 

Altogether, more than 3,000 consultations have been carried out, in various specialties.

Thank you for the love, attention and respect you have for all Venezuelans. You didn’t stop believing in us. We will be able to seek for new achievements thanks to your fraternal love.
