You cannot practice social distancing without thinking about the most vulnerable amongst us, particularly refugees and migrants.

Salam to all,

This campaign aims to support up to 200 refugee families in Brazil with rent, food and personal hygiene care for three months as ways to alleviate the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In times of crises, we must unite our efforts in solidarity and care for the most vulnerable. The vast majority of refugees in Brazil live from pay-cheque to pay-cheque, in shared rented apartments and without a supporting network who could shelter them in case of eviction. The COVID-19 pandemic is accentuating humanitarian crises throughout the world, placing refugees and migrants on the edge of food insecurity and homelessness. 

In the light of this pandemic, the organisation Hospitality Circles stands in solidarity with refugees and migrants and calls you to do the same. With your help and generosity, we can mitigate the crisis, feed people and avoid evictions.

How can you help?

With 7,500 euros, we can help 6 refugee families for three months with rent, food and personal hygiene care and more 200 refugee families with food and personal hygiene care.

As a non-profit organisation based in Brazil, Hospitality Circles is committed to transparency and build trust with donnors. All of our actions are posted on our social media channels (Facebook @circulosdehospitalidade / @humanizerefugees and Instagram), and shared via email. 

As we practice social distancing, stock food and supplies, work from home and enjoy Netflix marathons, let’s be aware of the most vulnerable amongst us. As we feel anxious and concerned, let’s practice empathy, solidarity and build a stronger sense of community beyond the boundaries of our usual networks. As we find things to do in our spare time, let’s care for each other from a place of love and interconnectedness.
