The Orchestras and Choirs of Heliópolis were
created for a community.
And they continue existing because of it.
Now, we'll all be playing together
COVID-19 brought a crisis of enormous proportions to the entire planet. Social isolation is generating several impacts for citizens around the world, but it generates even more drastic impacts for the populations of poor areas, like favelas, or slums.
The Baccarelli Institute, located in Heliópolis, one of the largest favelas in São Paulo and Brazil, is now working to support the community's emergency needs. Inadequate shelter and overcrowding are major factors in the transmission of diseases with epidemic potential such as acute respiratory infections. Outbreaks of disease are more frequent and more severe when the population density is high.
In addition, poor health resources and low income make the pandemic even more threatening in these regions.
23 years ago, maestro Silvio Baccarelli created a music program to help Heliópolis after a big fire. And, following your example, today, we will focus our efforts to try to lessen the effects of the pandemic.
We are going to work to get donations of food and basic products to the population of the area. The institute's headquarters will function as a donation center. In addition, we are also seeking support from companies and donors to bring different types of aid to families.
If you are able to support during this difficult time , you can do so by the PayPal button below. We will be very grateful!
It is also important to remember that we will give an account of how the donations were intended.
Our society is undergoing a profound transformation, and we will only be able to overcome the difficulties that it is bringing if we act together.
We count on you.
Thank you very much!
