DOE MÚSICA, DOE VIDA is a fundraising effort led by Santa Marcelina Cultura, a Brazilian social organization operating in vulnerable areas in the city of São Paulo and wider metropolitan area.

The coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic has impacted greatly our communities, students and families, aggravating the social vulnerability of children and youth we try to reach through our work. DOE MÚSICA, DOE VIDA aims at donating groceries and basic needs packages to be distributed among them, in order to help them get through the current crisis.

An initial data survey with our community tells that, up until mid-June, 70% of families have had their income significantly decreased. 41% of our students’ families are facing unemployment. 20% are having only one to two meals per day due to lack of food. And 9,2% are not having their minimum recommended sustenance needs met.

With only US$ 12.60, you can ensure that a student’s family gets a care package delivered to their home with the following products:
