Afghanistan Response

Abuna has gone to great lengths to advise and welcome Afghan refugees who have left their homes since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan. Due to the arrival of several people without help or a place to stay in Brazil, we welcome families in an emergency, guaranteeing all the necessary assistance and comprehensive care.

Pro-Ukraine Alliance

With the pro-Ukraine alliance, Abuna has been directly involved, sharing with the Ukraining community already settled in Brazil good practices in welcoming the new refugees. We also worked with other organizations and the Brazilian government to produce brochures, bringing relevant information and advices to the newcomers.

We believe that the sum of small efforts is the best way to transform seemingly impossible realities! See some highlights of our history!

people fully welcomed and integrate

ABUNA has already fully welcomed, offering housing, food, legal advice, medical, dental, and psychological treatment, Portuguese classes, and preparation to get a job, among other services, to 308 refugees, 167 of whom are Afghans. Some were sick, and still, others were "persons with special needs" (PCDs). They came from 12 countries: Venezuela, Haiti, Congo, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

rescues from

high risk

We often receive requests to help people who are beyond the reach of other organizations. In these cases, we mobilize Special Task Forces, with trained and experienced people and move towards the danger to rescue them. This was the case of Venezuelan girls who were under the net of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, a Congolese family of 7 who were hiding in the forest after militias burned their village, many Christians from the Middle East persecuted by terrorists, and more recently, hundreds of Afghans sentenced to death by the current regime.

In all, there are already more than 58 tons of food, in addition to thousands of items of clothing, warm clothes, shoes, medicines, blankets, cribs, diapers, and toys collected and donated to families with refugee status and vulnerable immigrants not to mention the dozens of houses we have already furnished, with refrigerators, stoves, furniture for the bedroom, living room, etc.
