Adventist leaders in Campo Grande, the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, came up with an inspired idea to encourage acts of solidarity among members and help vulnerable families in their community, especially in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Chaplain Claudiney Primo started the “Onda do Bem” or “Wave of Good” challenge in the health unit of Hospital Adventista do Pênfigo in Campo Grande. He challenged managing director, Everton Martin, to purchase food baskets for needy families in the city. Martin, in turn, challenged three other co-workers. Gradually, the chain gained momentum and many employees joined the initiative.
