A fundamental investment for the wellbeing of the Xixuaú Community
February 27 2014
A trained nurse called Artemizia da Nazare Brazao, was hired to work in the village, and was required to tend to her patients in a room in the school teacher’s house. Now Artemizia will be able to provide an improved health service to those in the village and its neighbouring villages.
We would like to make a special mention to Mr. Adilson do Asa, Mayor of Rorainópolis, for helping with some of the costs to buy material for the construction of the new building. Equally, a mention goes to Licia Tonetto, who decided to help raise funds after visiting the Xixuaú community and acknowledging their urgent need for an improved health care facility. She organised a successful auction of donated goods from close friends in New York. Their support was invaluable for this accomplishment which will benefit the community and other in the Jauaperí region.
