Brigadas Avei

Español

“Brigadas Avei” significa “Brigadas Hasta Siempre” en guaraní.

Brigas Avei es una iniciativa de voluntarios que colaboran en el recojo de personas fallecidas en las ciudades de Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Trinidad y El Alto/La Paz, como consecuencia de la saturación de los sistemas de salud y emergencia que podría generar el Coronavirus en estas ciudades.

Nuestra intervención brinda paz a las familias dolientes y vecinos afectados.
