October 13, 2020, São Paulo – Through its Solidary Plane program, at the beginning of October LATAM Cargo Brazil transported 508 kilos of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for the NGO Associação Médicos da Floresta. This institution provides eye and dental care to isolated indigenous communities through the “Amazonian Cataract” and “Amazonian Smile” projects. The supplies were transported from São Paulo/Congonhas to Boa Vista (Roraima), close to the place where the indigenous people live and are treated by the entity’s volunteer doctors.
The PPE was transported free of charge in order to help the health professionals that are serving indigenous communities in the region. This reaffirms LATAM’s commitment to supporting social and environmental causes, actively collaborating with its partner NGOs and their initiatives.
