point of view


We must take care of the world

“We must take care of life, we must take care of the world.” After getting support from Israeli soldiers in the Brumadinho rescue operation, the Minas Gerais Fire Brigade will embark for Africa. In Mozambique, the agents will help in the rescue operation for the victims of Cyclone Idai, which affected 1,85 million people and left more than 460 dead in the country. The situation is so critical that there is a lack of food and water for the population, and there have been cases of cholera. Let Milton Nascimento and Wagner Tiso’s song transform our perspective and make us have empathy for someone else’s pain.
