Youth Minister Kidson Rocha highlights the joint initiatives that have emerged especially in the pandemic scenario. He said, “I understand that we, as a government in the Federal District, must join forces to confront the epidemic, and for this reason, Sajouf is available to help at this moment.” “We made our youth aware by advising them to wear a mask and alcohol gel and not to be crowded. In addition, we have partners like Adra, who came to us willing to donate,” added Kidson Rocha.

Jeconias Vieira explains that Adra is a partner in several US embassy projects, through the United States Agency for International Development (Usaid), which has proposed allocating resources to purchase inputs to combat covid-19. According to the regional director of Adra, this measure is important because it strengthens the work of the Health Department, as he believes, “We need a movement of love and solidarity at this very difficult time for all of us.”
