In Dois Vizinhos, in the southwest of Paraná, Hospital Pró-Vida received funds to purchase an oxygen plant, ten infusion pumps and medicines that will be part of the city's first Intensive Care Unit.

The donation is part of an additional BRL 50 million announced by BRF on March 31 of this year to help fight the Covid-19 pandemic. The initiative includes actions in 15 Brazilian states and in countries where BRF has production units, distribution centers and corporate offices. The company's goal is to continue its efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus, to contribute to the assistance to the population during the emergency phase, and to act to combat the effects of the pandemic.

In Brazil alone, there were 1100 social entities contemplated with BRF's actions, including through partners.
