Our Part for the Whole.
These are the courses of action we have taken for the safety of everyone that is part of our chain. #OurPartForTheWhole.
Together for One Purpose
We are keenly aware of our responsibility at this point and we will continue to do our part: serving thousands of families in Brazil and around the world, without giving up the health and safety of everyone involved in this process. We believe that offering safe working conditions for our personnel and other members of our chain is part of our commitment. That is why we have adopted some measures to take care of all the people involved in our operational context. #OurPartForTheWhole.
Donations that make a difference
We announced the donation of another R$ 50 million in 2021, to help fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
Institutions, NGOs, public and private hospitals, secretariats, city halls of the municipalities where the company is present, and other public agencies will receive food, hospital supplies and equipment, in addition to other relevant initiatives to combat the virus and support social needs.
In 2020, we directed R$50 million in donations, which still benefit the population, mainly in the cities where we have operations.
The actions take place in more than 10 states in Brazil, more than 70 municipalities, and also in the Middle East, in regions such as the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Turkey.

Our Part for the Whole Fund
The BRF Institute launches a project that selects and invests resources in initiatives to help communities face the consequences of the pandemic caused by the new Coronavirus. The action has four fronts: Health and Emergency Actions; Generation of Work and Income; Education and Technological Inclusion and Food Security and Social Protection. Each one of them has different deadlines for registration and maximum amounts per project, which can be checked in the enrollment notice.
Together for Amazonas
Together with 14 other companies, donations were made directly to Fiocrus for machinery and accessories of an oxygen plant for hospitals in the state of Amazonas that treat patients with more severe cases of COVID-19.
BRF and 11 other companies have joined in a collective action to make possible the donation of more than 5,000 oxygen concentrators, which will be used for the treatment of Covid-19 patients in their own localities, avoiding movements to other cities and, consequently, the overload of hospitals. The oxygen concentrator is a piece of equipment that separates oxygen from air and supplies it to the patient in a direct, continuous flow, helping to improve the patient's respiratory capacity, which is one of the areas most affected as a consequence of Covid-19.
1.453 tons of food and more than 3.1 million meals that will benefit hospitals, social assistance organizations and health professionals.
Donations of food and medical supplies
More than 1223 entities, including over 100 hospitals have received food, tests, thermometers, personal protective equipment, and others.
We are investing BRL 4.0 million in tests for Covid-19 for donations in support of the municipalities where we have operations. We have been discussing with the authorities of 35 cities where we have operations to make a joint effort with local governments and hospitals in the fight against COVID and its effects.
R$500 million investment in new protocols and prevention measures to protect its employees and third parties.
We are forwarding more than R$ 7,6 million to scientific research funds that seek solutions to prevent, diagnose, and treat Covid-19. Among the supported institutes are: Hospital das Clínicas, Faculdades de Medicina da USP, and Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz). We donated R$ 5 million to the Butantan Institute's Covid-19 vaccine project.
Our donations are traveling across borders. Take a look at our programs and the list of entities assisted.
