Guidebook: how to help migrants and refugees during the Coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus crisis hit us all in different ways and intensities.

A great part of the migrants and refugees that live in Brazil are entrepreneurs and/or informal workers. In the face of the current situation, and unable to leave their houses, many people have lost their only source of income.

In an attempt to mitigate the negative impacts that coronavirus has been causing in the lives of refugees and immigrants, the Mawon association shares a guidebook to strengthen our network and to indicate possible ways of contributing to those who want to support the cause.

The transcription of the guidebook is below. To access the original art in PDF click here! Share :)

Hire an online language class

Language diversity is one of the greatest cultural riches we carry with us. In addition to learning something new, immersing yourself in a culture completely different from ours makes us face the world differently.

Contribute financially to a vulnerable family
