11 out CREN to participate in the campaign “Abrace o Brasil”
CREN is participating in the Abrace o Brasil (Embrace Brazil) campaign launched by BrazilFoundation in partnership with organizations that carry out important social work in the country. CREN is raising funds to recover children and adolescents with malnutrition in the outskirts of São Paulo. The campaign closes on November 28, the “Donate Day”. Until then, we need to reach the goal of USD 16,000.
Despite having one of the largest economies in the world, Brazil’s philanthropic sector is small and lagging behind others in Latin America, (Brazil ranks 91st in the World Giving Index). Philanthropy in Brazil has a lot of potential to develop and it can be a powerful tool to promote opportunities and change the country. You can play an important role in changing this. Join us! Embrace a cause! Embrace Brazil!
How Your Donation to CREN Will Help
We will develop a treatment project for a thousand malnourished children in the outskirts of São Paulo. CREN will identify vulnerable families and malnourished children and teens aged 0 to 18 years. After this, the team will work on nutritional issues through workshops, family training, and consultations with specialists. The nutritional recovery linked to empowerment will ensure a healthier future and the expansion of knowledge.
