WimBelemDon is helping children´s families during this pandemia. Since March 25th we are attending the social distancing so we cannot concentrate the children in our space. From that moment on, we have been conducting remote monitoring of all families, through our psychologists and social agents, making themselves available for assistance in these areas. In addition, we prepared a special assistance to help these families on the correct practices to avoid the virus and guarantee social rights they have.
We expect that even if the situation returns to normal in 60 days, a vulnerable family, like our audience, takes another 60 days to reorganize.
The selection of these families was made based on a survey that our psychology team and social agents made with all of our public. We identified the families with the greatest urgency in receiving these items and started delivering since March 21rd. Deliveries are being made by our team at the headquarters of WimBelemDon, in order to minimize contact, respecting public health rules for reducing the spread of Covid-19.
Some words of Marcelo Ruschel (Founder and Superindent) : “With regard to this whole situation, we are once again putting into practice attributes that we usually work on since 2015, involving all the workshops with the students, as well as in the fire (2018) that we work on Perseverance… and now we all have to put into practice… I take more risks, I am optimistic in thinking that the planet will return more humane and compassionate, because inevitably all the people of this world will have to, in a way, deal with various attributes that we work around here and are not taught in traditional schools… we believe that we will return with more: Empathy, Perseverance, Love, Altruism, Generosity, Kindness, Gratitude, Humility, Forgiveness, Honesty, Tolerance, Respect and Compassion”
